What’s on in the Hunting Lodge?

Living in Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford means not only Epping Forest and Central London are on your doorstep but the historic Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge, 8 Ranger's Road, E4 7QH, is too!

Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge really is a wonderful example of a uniquely English and still standing timber-framed lodge. The Lodge still surrounded by its medieval royal hunting forest is home to regular heritage events for the locals and visitors to the area.

The Lodge was built on the orders of Henry VIII in 1543 and refurbished by Queen Elizabeth I in 1589. There are three floors in the Hunting Lodge, each with a themed display. You will find the sights and sounds of a Tudor kitchen on the ground floor; you can explore the world of Tudor fashion on the first floor. You can even try on Tudor outfits and there is a guide to Tudor heraldry.

From the second-floor windows, you can admire the most spectacular view of Epping Forest and imagine it on a frosty Tudor hunt day, or look up and marvel at the beautiful puzzle of Tudor timber roof construction. It’s a great place to soak up the atmosphere of an incredible building.

You can even book it for special occasions now. This heritage, Grade II* listed building is available to hire exclusively for weddings and civil ceremonies. The Tudor beams and lime-washed walls inside and outside make The Hunting Lodge an inspiring setting for your wedding photographs. The Lodge offers a truly historic romantic sense of English history and timeless elegance alongside a naturally stunning backdrop.

It’s a bit like living in the area - it is a London location but the tranquillity of the woodland location and escape from the hustle and bustle of urban living makes you feel like you are in the country.
