The County Hotel is surrounded by a great range of local attractions and things to do. There is something for everyone on offer in and around this area of London.
This 6000 acre wood is only minutes away from the hotel and is the largest public open space in Greater London. A vast area of natural beauty, Epping Forest spreads out from the northeast of the city limits towards the M25 circular. The forest provides an array of ponds, parkland and meadows but is mainly home to a magnificent range of ancient trees, making it one of London's most magical nature spots.
William morris gallery
This Grade II listed gallery, housed in the mid-18th century boyhood home of artist and designer William Morris, has a permanent exhibition on his life and work - including wallpapers, fabrics, carpets and stained glass. A total of nearly 600 exhibits are displayed across 12 galleries including influential works such as his first ever wallpaper design, the wallpaper he designed for St James' Palace and the only tapestry ever to be designed by Morris himself. The William Morris Gallery is only 2.8 miles away from the hotel.
Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge
Tudor grandstand and the only remaining timber-framed standing in Britain. Well and truly off the beaten track, this hunting lodge is hidden away in Epping Forest, perched on the edge of London. Henry VIII commissioned the construction of the grandstand in 1543 as a base from which he could watch or participate in a spot of deer hunting.
