Once a hunting forest providing venison for the King’s table, this beautiful ancient woodland is home to a wealth of wildlife and plant species. Together with the southern section, owned by the London Borough of Redbridge it forms Hainault Forest Country Park, the Redbridge section has a lake, petting zoo and orienteering course, makes it the perfect destination for a family day out. And it’s easily accessible from London.
