Epping Forest and the Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge

Chingford is home to the Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge. This was built on the orders of Henry VIII in 1543 and contains exhibitions on Tudor history.

Next to the Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge is “The View”. This is a new visitor centre, with interactive displays telling the story of Epping Forest.

Both offer free entry from 10am to 5pm and are a ten minute uphill walk from the Chingford bus and train stations.

During the hunt, teams will be able to search for, amongst other thing, a number of blue plaques around the area.  This includes a newly replaced blue plaque following a request for its restoration by Treasure Hunts in London.

Tickets for the treasure hunt are available here.
