Festive Forest Fayre at Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge

Dec 10th to Dec 11th Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge

Come and enjoy Epping Forest’s winter wonderland over our festive Forest weekend.

Our younger visitors will especially appreciate this year’s Frozen theme, with Elsa and Anna in attendance for an extra-special festive treat. Get that perfect winter photo opportunity with Elsa and Anna in their magical Frozen sleigh before they set off for woodland adventures.

Our Christmas roller disco, which all the family can enjoy, is available at just £4.50 for half an hour (skates included). There will also be balloon modelling, craft activities, local produce and handmade items for sale, not to mention cheeky Forest elves, woodland walks and an array of festive fun activities for all the family.queen-elizabeths-hunting-lodge
