Directions / Parking

There is no car park at the wood. Limited street parking is available along Summerhouse Drive, close to the main entrance. There is also a pay and display car park on Bexley High Street and parking at Bexley train station which is within walking distance of the wood.


Joyden’s Wood is a tranquil, ancient woodland right on London’s doorstep. With its remarkable flora, abundant wildlife, and an intriguing history stretching back to Roman times, it’s a wonderful place to escape the hectic pace of city life.
