We'll be building up a list of places of interest local to The Bull that registered users can rate. This will help visitors to the area find the best places to go and might even provide some inspiration for us locals too. If you want more information on any of these, why not pop in and see us - we might have some further literature, advice or even discount tickets for some of them.
Debden House Centre, owned by the London Borough of Newham, is located in the heart of Epping Forest. The property was formally a farm but today provides high quality educational and leisure activities within the house and grounds.
Debden House Conference Centre provides premium facilities for meetings, conferences, exhibitions and education.
Debden House Campsite is over 50 acres and has attracted thousands of visitors since its opening in 1947. The campsite has 375 pitches available for hire including 60 pitches with electric hook-up.
With Debden House being located on the edge of Epping Forest it’s the perfect place to get close to nature and explore the forest and surrounding areas. Use the direct access from Debden House to Epping Forest to visit the deer sanctuary or stay closer to home and see the host of beautiful wildlife and domestic breed animals, including pigs, goats, guinea fowl, owls, rabbits and squirrels that Debden House has to offer.
