The 25-mile Forest Way links the two ancient forests of Epping Forest and Hatfield Forest. Green lanes and quiet paths will lead you through the gentle countryside of south-west Essex, from London’s green lung to a royal hunting forest undisturbed since the 13th century.

With good public transport and easy parking, it’s simple to walk the Forest Way either in a single visit or in shorter day stages.
