Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge
This is Queen Elizabeth's hunting lodge, watch out deer!
Location: 6 Rangers Road, Chingford, London, E4 7QH
Description: This is Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge, situated at the heart of glorious Epping Forest.
The timber-framed grade 2* listed building was commissioned by King Henry VIII as a grandstand for shooting deer from.
Dating from 1543, it would have been the centre of a lavish day out for Tudor courtiers.
Today, the Lodge is quiet and visitors can explore the kitchen and the King's shooting gallery, admire a ceiling which inspired a young William Morris or admire the fantastic view. Best of all, it's free, and it's a rare opportunity to explore the Tudor kitchen, see the stairs which legend says Queen Elizabeth rode her horse up, and admire the fantastic carpentry.
