If you're looking for something a little unusual to do this summer, then why not check out the Ice Well Tours at High Elm Country Park?

Next running on Sunday 8th August between 2.00pm to 4.00pm, this fascinating tour is FREE (donations welcome) and allows access and exploration of this "amazing subterranean structure"

Meet at the entrance to the Ice Well, High Elms Country Park, for an interesting day out.

High Elms Country Park also offers 250 acres of countryside to explore combined with a 150-acre golf course.


"The site is also home to BEECHE (Bromley Environmental Education Centre at High Elms) which is a newly-built sustainable education and visitor centre with a café and two large multi-functional rooms for use by community groups, local businesses and schools.

High Elms is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Local Nature Reserve, enjoying the support of local environmental groups as well as the Countryside Agency, Forestry Authority and English Nature. There are chalk meadows and woodlands that support a variety of wildlife including species that are rare in London.

Events held at High Elms include children’s Eco-Buzz, guided walks, ice well tours, Family Rambling Day and Woodland Day.

The Bromley Countryside Ranger Service operates from High Elms and manages Bromley owned countryside sites and promotes access to the countryside."
