How to get here
The nearest mainline station is Eridge on the London Victoria-Uckfield line. From the station, walk north-east along Eridge Road. After 1.2 miles (1.9 km), turn right down Park Corner Lane and at the end of Park Corner Lane turn right along Broadwater Forest Lane. After 0.2 miles (0.3 km) on the right there is a gate into the reserve.
The Arriva service 228/229 between Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough and the Brighton and Hove service 28/29/29A/29B between Tunbridge Wells and Brighton both stop on the A26 close to the reserve. The safest stops are at Eridge Green from where you can walk down Warren Farm Lane (next to Eridge Church) to the Sussex Wildlife Trust Eridge Rocks Nature Reserve and then through Eridge Rocks north into Broadwater Warren.
The Forest Way, part of the Downs and Weald Cycle Route (National Route 21), follows the route of an old railway line from East Grinstead to Groombridge. It is about 2 and a half miles from the end of Forest.
From Tunbridge Wells, take the A26 south towards Crowborough. After 2.1 miles (3.4 km), turn right into Broadwater Forest Lane. Continue along Broadwater Forest Lane for 0.8 miles (1.3 km.

Information for dog owners
Please keep your dog on a lead during the breeding season of 1 February and 30 September and under close control all year round. Do keep your dog on the main tracks. Keep tight control of your dog when in the car park. Please always clean up after your dog and use the bins at the main entrances. As well as being vastly unpleasant, dog waste increases nutrients in the soil, affecting the rare plant life that makes the nature reserve so special.
If you somehow lose your dog, retrace your steps, talk to visitors, leave us your phone number. If you find a lost dog and cannot trace the owner, contact Animal Wardens Ltd on 0845 2417253.
