Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge

6 Rangers Road
Greater London
E4 7QH

Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge is situated at the heart of glorious Epping Forest.

The timber- framed grade 2* listed building was commissioned by King Henry VIII as a grandstand for shooting deer from. Dating from 1543, it would have been the centre of a lavish day out for Tudor courtiers.

Today, the Lodge is quiet and visitors can explore the kitchen and the King's shooting gallery, admire a ceiling which inspired a young William Morris or admire the fantastic view. Brass rubbings and dressing up clothes are available for children.

Special events are organised and private tours for groups are available.
