Buckhurst Hill is a suburban town in Epping Forest, Essex. It is part of the Greater London Urban Area and was the setting for an ITV factual programme called “Essex Wives”, about wealthy women and business women who live in the area. This launched the career of the glamour model Jodie Marsh, who was featured in the series. The high street has a village feel and plenty of shops and cafes.
There is only really one hotel near Buckhurst Hill Station, which is a 4 star property. If you look in the wider area, you will find mainly 3 and 4 star hotels, both chain brands and independent hotels. You can find lower prices than in the centre of London, as this is about half an hour out of the city. Buckhurst Hill hotels would suit people who do not need or want to stay in the centre of London and would like to enjoy the surrounding countryside of Epping Forest.
Buckhurst Hill is an underground station in Epping Forest, Essex, just outside London. It’s on the Central Line in Travelcard Zone 5. The station opened in 1856. It was originally part of the Eastern Counties Railway line from London to Loughton. It came into ownership of London Underground in 1948, when the branch was electrified and made part of the Central Line. Its original features have been well preserved and it still feels very much like a Victorian station.
There are some green spaces to be enjoyed nearby, including Warren Hill Park. West Essex Park is the largest open space in the area and is used for walking, running and a variety of sports. The William Girling Reservoir is part of the Lee Valley Reservoir Chain and is a site of special scientific interest because of its wildlife. The Lee Valley Golf Course is adjacent to the water and has 18 holes. It’s a short but challenging course, with a lake and the River Lea as water hazards. Keen golfers have another course to choose from in this area, at Chigwell Golf Club, which was founded in 1925. Visitors are welcome on weekdays, except Tuesday morning and Fridays.
Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge was built in 1543. It is constructed on a platform so that guests can view the hunt from a high vantage point, and shoot crossbows from the upper floors. Entrance is free and there are 3 floors of exhibits. There are interesting and informative displays on Tudor foods, kitchenware, carpentry and costumes, and, of course, great views over Epping Forest to be enjoyed.
