The Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge is set on the edge of Epping Forest. It is said that Queen Elizabeth rode her horse up the stairs of the Lodge. It was used in the queen’s time as a lookout for deer and any wild animals that roamed the forest in those days.
It is child friendly as it is now set up as a museum and children can try on the clothes that were worn in Tudor times. There are notes in all the rooms explaining points of interest and there is a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside from the windows. In addition there is a shop at the bottom of the building where visitors can purchase momentos. Although not a huge building to explore, it has a charm of its own and well worth a visit if in the area.
