Find out more

Since 1967, Suntrap has welcomed primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form colleges, nurseries, children centres and family groups to explore the natural environment within Epping Forest under the guidance of our qualified, expert staff. A visit to the centre is not only great value, but something you’ll value now and for years to come. 

From July 2019 – April 2020, our much loved building will be undergoing major refurbishment. The Suntrap team will be on tour - bringing nature nearer to you.

Suntrap on Tour offers sessions; in schools, local woodlands or green space and the team & some of our animals will be out and about in Waltham Forest and beyond, come and find us to say hello.
