Langley Vale Wood
Our popular guided walks at Langley Vale Wood are back for 2020! Langley Vale Wood is one of the Woodland Trust’s First World War Centenary Woods near Epsom, Surrey. We have a variety of walks for you to choose from, including dawn chorus and butterfly-themed walks.
Near Epsom, nestled between London and the M25, Langley Vale Wood is one of the Woodland Trust’s four First World War Centenary Woods. The rumble of the modern world slowly fades away as you walk into the valleys surrounding you. With pockets of ancient woodland, diverse and fascinating wildlife and flora, and stunning views over the rolling hills of the North Downs you’re in for a treat visiting this exciting landscape.
Our knowledgeable volunteers will lead you on a walk where you’ll learn about the role the landscape played in the First World War and hear about the exciting improvements for wildlife as the site transforms from an intensive farm into a mosaic of woodland and grassland – a peaceful haven for wildlife and people to enjoy. Suitable for families, although bear in mind the amount of walking and stopping for discussions if you have younger children with you. Dogs on leads welcome. Booking essential at https://woodlandtrusttickets.cloudvenue.co.uk/guidedwalkslvw
All walks are 2 hours in duration and booking is essential. On-site parking is arranged for the walks; directions and a map will be emailed to you within 2 weeks of your booked event.
£6 per adult, £3 per child (under 16).
