A Walk in the Park - Ranger Ramble at Walthamstow Marshes

Walthamstow Marsh Nature Reserve, Coppermill Fields and Leyton Marsh are all part of this Green Flag award-winning site in the Lea Bridge area. The reserve is one of the few remaining pieces of London’s once widespread river valley grasslands, and a space to treasure for many reasons!

There are plenty of paths for us to explore on foot with great opportunity to see buzzards soaring above and peregrine falcons, and whilst at ground level two of Britain’s rarest plants – creeping marshwort and brookweed which thrive here.

Top tips

  • Please wear comfortable clothing as the walk can take up to two hours

  • Please also wear appropriate shoes as the route can get muddy

  • Bring change for refreshments or bring some snacks to keep you energized

  • Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead at all times

  • Car parking charges may apply if you decide to park at Lee Valley Ice Cente
