Hainault Forest Country Park

This beautiful ancient woodland is home to a wealth of wildlife and plant species.

There is a lake, petting zoo and orienteering course. Despite being right on the edge of London, the forest feels a world away from the city.

Transport links

Parking availability

The park contains two huge car parking areas which can be used for Unit Base, Technical and crew parking.
