Welcome to Ruislip Woods National Nature Reserve, the largest block of ancient, semi-natural woodland in Greater London.

Ruislip Woods, along with Ruislip Lido, are owned and managed by the London Borough of Hillingdon. We are fortunate in having several well-established volunteer ranger groups who work with us every week of the year, come rain or shine.

We hope you enjoy your visits to Ruislip Woods. If you have any comments, praise, criticism or points of view you would like to put to us please Green Spaces.

Please note that barbeques and fires are strictly prohibited throughout Ruislip Woods, including Ruislip Lido. Please dispose of your rubbish in the bins provided or take it home with you.
