Here’s where to get into history, dragonflies and a relaxed state of mind!
Enjoy a historic stroll at Waltham Abbey Gardens. This was once one of the largest Augustinian abbeys in the country, and information panels all around the site bring its history to life. The Abbey’s peaceful rose gardens also provides plenty of benches and picnic tables. Just sit back, relax and wind down in beautiful surroundings.
Walk just a little further and you enter a very special habitat – Cornmill Meadows support an amazing variety of dragon and damselflies. Simply looking at these elegant creatures in motion is a wonderful de-stress therapy!
There’s a hide too, from which you can watch the Meadows’ fascinating population of birds.
