Queen's Wood is an area of ancient woodland and local nature reserve situated in Muswell Hill, one of four ancient woodlands in Haringey. These woods are thought to be the direct descendants of the original ‘wildwood’, which covered most of Britain about five thousand years ago.
The wood was known as Churchyard Bottom Wood until it was purchased by Hornsey Urban District Council and renamed Queen's Wood in honour of Queen Victoria.

Set in a quiet spot not far inside the wood, this is fairly basic with a bit of a 'rustic'/scruffy feel. You can sit inside or in an attached covered area overlooking woodland.

This is a great Park near Highgate and Muswell Hill in London. Lot's of trails, some paved and some more rustic.

There are cafes, gardens, and plenty of amazing gnarled trees of all sorts. I find it relaxing and refreshing to take a walk through. more
Lovely location and ambience. However coffee was terrible, prices high and service poor. more
