If you've never been to Epping Forest, I suggest you do so. Especially in the Autumn or Winter, as it is stunning. We went last weekend and as you can see from these pictures, it was just incredible!

Epping is in Essex, but you can get there by taking the Central line from Central London. We actually took the Victoria line up to Walthamstow Central and got a bus from there to Loughton, before walking up into the forest itself from the town centre - either way, it's about an hour to an hour and a half's journey.

There are various paths all across the forest (it spans for miles) as well as a visitor centre if you're not sure where to go. The colours this time of year are gorgeous, and everywhere you look is like something out of a fairytale. I'm so glad we took the time out to go here! It's the perfect place for a day date which gives a bit of breathing space outside of London.
