Orange sunset over distant London skyscrapers with dark trees in the foreground

From the top of Tylers grassland hilltop you can see right across Docklands to the City of London, with its distinctive ‘Gherkin’ and on into the West End. It's a real one-of-a-kind view! A lovely outdoor spot away from the city. 

Pages Wood field of flowers

Pages Wood is the largest site in Thames Chase and home to 100,000 trees. This valley of green space offers excellent views as well as a rich mosaic of habitats for wildlife.

It's a great place for children to cycle safely, and also provides a variety of walking opportunities.

 

Meadow of white wild flowers with blue sky

Venture off the beaten track at one of London's hidden gems, tucked between the A127 and M25. Folkes Lane Woodland is based on what were previously arable fields grouped around a steep hill. From its top are vistas south over the River Thames to the North Downs and west across London’s Docklands and Canary Wharf. On a good day you can see as far as the O2 at Greenwich and the London Eye. Folkes Lane Woodland is the perfect place to escape and enjoy the quiet of the woods.
