Lovely park muddy but expect that free parking which is always bonus and toilets and cafe facility. Today bearing in mind really busy as half term they thought it was a good idea to bring tractor and digger into main park area (children everywhere) to attempt to fix part of park that has been broken for ages! Don't understand why... More

I love taking my dogs to Wat Tyler. So many different paths to take. Its ideal for children of all ages too, with the adventure playgrounds for smaller and older children. Plenty of activities and fun during school holidays. Lots to explore, lots of interesting information dotted around on your walk. There are bird hides too, so remember to take... More

I went there with my boyfriend. We both enjoy outdoor activities and long walks so it was a perfect place for us. They serve a very yummy apple crumble in the cafe.

Up and down the shallow hills, finding art installations, and meeting fellow dog walkers, what a way to start a frosty day! I wish i'd have visited the cafe in the new location, as the last one i visited was in the work shop type buildings.
