  • This is both a historic and fascinating mix of ancient woodland ,farmland and fields only 12 m from central London. Memories of Elizabethan intrigue, Second World War occupation, bomb craters...  more »
  • Love this place amazing walk/ wildlife all around very good for dogs and children, one of the best walks in Chislehurst  more »
  • As a path, there's sometimes not much to do other than walk. Here, it's not much different, however it's nice. Here, you not only get walking through woods, but walking through fields and natural-weed-like hedges with paths to walk through. Some places have amazing lush grass on the paths. Due to this, you'll enjoy the sun, when we eventually get it. Benches are scattered around and you'll have no trouble finding any. There are little openings in the trees where you can explore (which don't lead to anywhere), and little wooden structures to have fun for children. There's even a place to eat. Although parking may be limited, the small adjacent road has free parking if you can find some there.
  • Just brilliant. Let your imagination run wild (and your kids too). This place is vast, it's always a pleasure to get lost. I bike here and love it.
