Queen's Wood

Muswell Hill

As well as being one of the boroughs three Local Nature Reserves, Queens Wood is 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 Queens Wood in honour of Queen Victoria.

There's a lovely cafe and Organic Community Garden (42 Muswell Hill Road, N10 3JP; 020 8444 2604; queenswoodcafe.co.uk), with a Jungle Walkway for kids...

Queen's Wood Café is a non-profit community café in north London's legendary Queen's Wood, offering a great selection of delicious, organic, seasonal food and drinks with plenty of vegetarian options, in a child- and dog-friendly environment.
