The Epping Museum is staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers and is currently closed to the public for improvements over the winter season, re-opening in spring 2023. The entrance to the site is through Epping station car park. If arriving by Central Line, turn left out of the station and walk down the ramp and towards the back of the car park.
If driving, coming from Epping town centre along Station Road turn right just before the railway bridge with yellow chevrons.
Continue driving down the slope past the station (& usually buses) on your left and on through the car park. You should be able to see our large yellow locomotive in front of you - our gate is to the right. Please press the bell button if the gate is closed. One of the team will come and let you in.
You can get to Epping Museum in the following ways:
By London Underground Central Line
By far the easiest! Catch a Central Line train to Epping (zone 6) and it’s the last stop on the line. Keep an eye out of the left side (facing travel) train windows shortly before arriving at Epping - you’ll see our bright yellow Locomotive L11. Check your train times on the TfL website
Several local buses from places such as Waltham Cross, Harlow or Ongar serve the station. The bus stop is right outside the station. Plan your bus journey with Traveline.
Now the Elizabeth Line is open, why not make a day of it? Catch a new Elizabeth line train to Brentwood, then take a leisurely bus ride through rural Essex, via Ongar, to Epping. Experience a ride on a new train and then come and see our 90 year old one! A suggested route with timetable can be found here.
Use SatNav postcode CM16 4HW. Turn off the nearby M25 J27 or M11 J6, and follow signs for Epping. When on Epping High Street watch for the Station Road mini roundabout (not the one by the big church with the clock!). Drive along Station Road until you see a bridge with yellow chevrons. Turn right. A large NCP car park is available at Epping station.
At busy times eg Bank Holiday weekends, it may be advisable to book in advance. Please see the Contact Us page for details.
