Highly recommended as always. I grew up visiting hainault and it's only improved with time. I now love taking my children. We visited this week and hired a row boat for £10 for 30 minutes. Leave a £10... more »
Had a lovely morning exploring this forest. It had rained the night before so the forest was fresh. Great for small children too as there was evidence of tree logs being used a dams in the rivers more »
It's a park with plenty of open space to flop or play in and the forest itself is always worth a wander around. The zoo is OK for the younger members of the family. The boating lake is not huge but worth a go if you have never done it before but on a nice day there is a good chance you will be in the queue longer than you are in the boat. The cafe has a good variety of food and drink on offer and the prices are reasonable but it does get very busy and very untidy and attractive to flies and wasps. It's a good way to fill a few hours but if you are driving there are bigger, better parks a few more miles further into Essex
If you like forestry walks this is a good shout. It has tree carvings lettered around the area for you to encounter and each one is weirder than the last. Truly an adventure
Brilliant place. Lots to do for both adults and children. Then are even rowing boats, and a really good café.
Cheap day out for the family. My kids love it. Lots of running space also
Great place for a day out they have a cafe fishing lake great for all the family try it some time only down side u have to pay for parking
