About this event

Discover our Nature Trail, the oldest in London.

Join Jim Murphy from the Trust for Urban Ecology to discover the oldest Nature Trail in London this Summer. The Horniman Nature Trail is carefully managed to encourage wildlife and includes pond, meadow and log pile habitats. The half mile of trail occupies a stretch of the original Crystal Palace and South London Junction Railway.

  • Please be aware that the Nature Trail is accessed by steps and situated away from the museum buildings. This makes it unsuitable for children in buggies.
  • There are no facilities on or immediately near the trail.
  • Please dress for the weather.
