Waltham Forest

Waltham Forest provides a wealth of open spaces – including the Lee Valley Regional Park, Epping Forest, Wanstead Flats, Chingford Plains, Walthamstow and Leyton Marshes – with each being ideal for a range of physical activities including walking, running and cycling. Please see our Circular Walk via the Olympic Park below, which goes through a number of these spaces.

The borough also plays host to a wide number of sporting opportunities ranging from swimming to fencing. Take a look at some of the sporting options under the “12 Hour Challenge Sports” tab to see just some of the many opportunities near you.
