"A Grand Day Out"

Now the Elizabeth Line is open, intrepid travellers may wish to combine a trip on London's newest railway to come to Epping and see one of London Underground's oldest railway exhibits - our pre-1938 stock Locomotive L11.  Ideal if you have a London Freedom Pass or other concessionary travel pass and are not in a hurry, this journey takes you on a ride in the new, fast Elizabeth Line trains from Liverpool Street, then on two leisurely bus rides across open Essex countryside and finally to Epping tube station, home of Epping Museum.

 

The Elizabeth Line runs trains to Shenfield from Liverpool Street every 7-8 minutes. Alight at Brentwood station - one stop before Shenfield. From Brentwood catch a bus to Chipping Ongar then from Chipping Ongar catch a second bus to Epping tube station. A suggested journey timetable is detailed below. Please check timetables on your chosen day of travel in case of changes. Remember Epping Museum is only open on Saturdays, 10am til 4:30pm.
