Near Epsom, nestled between London and the M25, Langley Vale Wood is the largest of the Woodland Trust’s four First World War Centenary Woods. The rumble of the modern world slowly fades away as you walk into the valleys surrounding you. With pockets of ancient woodland, diverse and fascinating wildlife and flora, and stunning views over the rolling hills of the North Downs you’re in for a treat visiting this exciting landscape. 

Our knowledgeable volunteers will lead you on a guided walk of just over two miles, where you’ll learn about the role the landscape played in the First World War and hear about our exciting improvements for wildlife as the site transforms from an intensive farm into a mosaic of woodland and grassland. 

Don't forget

Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy footwear – it may be muddy on site.
