Fin och historisk natur, med en fin panoramautsikt över Londons skyline med alla skyskrapor. Ta gärna gångtunneln under Themsen hit.

London is full of interesting and bizarre curiosities, and if things like that are of great interest to you, here is one you really should go out of your way to see, and be amused by.

Tucked away in leafy Honor Oak Park, in suburban South London, One Tree Hill is one of London’s hidden gems. But let’s be upfront from the start. The name of the nature reserve seems a bit misleading, as there’s not a lone, graceful tree standing stark and solitary on a bare steep hill. In fact the hill is covered with hundreds of trees, and it’s only about 300 feet tall. The wooded area is a surviving fragment of the much larger Great North Wood that once stretched from near Deptford to Croydon. However, these hundreds of trees are all apparently inferior to one special tree in particular, found right at the summit. That tree is the Oak of Honor.

The Oak of Honor marks the boundary of the ancient Honor of Gloucester in the Norman times. This Oak, important because of its positioning at the top of the summit, was deemed so consequential that it gave the area, Honor Oak Park, its name. 

The current tree, planted in 1905, is actually the third to bear the name. The fate of the original oak is unknown, and the second was struck by lightning in the 1880s, leaving just a stump. You can’t miss the tree; it’s surrounded by a hexagonal railing with a small plaque retelling the Elizabeth story (read on).

But it’s the legends surrounding the Oak of Honor and the hill on which it sits which make it great. Legend has it that the tree really earned its name from the occasion when, on May 1, 1602, Queen Elizabeth I took a picnic under the oak while on her way to nearby Lewisham. Some continue the legend with the notion that the queen got drunk during her picnic and knighted the tree, bestowing upon it the title of ‘Honor’. Another legend tells how the hill was the site of the last, fateful battle between Queen Boudicca and the Romans in 61 CE. Rumour even suggests that highwayman Dick Turpin used to watch for potential targets or pursuers from the summit. Believe what you want!

The tree is not the only curiosity at the top of the hill. You will see an octagonal platform, in a somewhat poor state of repair. Handy as it is for making the most of the view, it was built in WWI to mount a gun for countering Zeppelin attacks. That gun was apparently replaced by a ‘Seat of Peace’ after the war (whatever that was, as it too is long gone). Today, it’s just the somewhat ugly and decrepit concrete base that’s left, but well situated for you to clamber up onto and take in the views.
There’s also a tall beacon next to this platform. It was built to celebrate George V’s Silver Jubilee in 1935, and was last lit during the Queen’s coronation in 1953. 

But the crowning glory of the walk up to the hill’s summit has to be the view of the London skyline. Indeed, on a clear day, many landmarks of Central London are all easily visible; there’s also a helpful information board nearby to help you identify the skyline’s landmarks, and there’s some seats right in front of of the view so you can relax awhile. The panorama of London’s contemporary skyline framed by leafy trees really does make it one of the best views of the city, to the point that it feels like a real-life trompe l’oeil – as if someone’s painted the scenery, thinking as much about the presentation and the composition, then hung it up for all of us to see.

Come here for some of the best views of the city and some rather curious tales about that tree.  The site is relatively easy to get to, a 10 minute walk from the Overground and National Rail station of Honor Oak Park. The paths up the hill are quite steep so may not be suitable for those requiring mobility assistance.

After walking through Peckham Rye Park and Brenchley Gardens, I arrived at the bottom of One Tree Hill, as you can see by my picture there is a handy map which points out places of interest on your visit.

As you can see in my picture the wooden steps can get slippery when wet so take care and make sure suitable footwear is worn, finally after the incline to the viewing point which as I mentioned was misty, shame as I bet the view is stunning and somewhere different to view the capital from, I’ll have to return which I will no question.

I then took the delightful path as seen by my picture, pass St Augustine Church, down to the main road which passes Honor Oak Overground Station 🚉, you can take this to complete your journey but as I mentioned in my other review, I ended my walk in Blythe Hill Fields.

So in summary, One Tree Hill, a nice place to spend the afternoon in.

I'd been keen for a while to visit various points in this part of South London affording views over the city. On a cool December Sunday afternoon, I took the Overground to Honor Oak Park and climbed the hill to the east to the splendid Blythe Hill Fields. The unobstructed view of the area from there is spectacular. I then walked back down into the valley and up to One Tree Hill. The nature reserve there is densely wooded and pretty. The view from the top is fine, but in summer would be quite restricted by the foliage. Even in late autumn with the leaves down, it's limited. The view from Blythe Hill, in contrast, is wide-open (see photo attached.) Still, the walk around the top of One Tree Hill and the nature reserve was worth the trip.

If you make the climb to One Tree Hill, take the time to walk south on Honor Oak Road five minutes to Canonbie Road. The crest of that hill affords a really spectacular view of London (see attached photos.)

Kent as it’s best. Steep narrow road via the village of Underriver brings you to a free car park at the top.
Woodland walks with views stretching to Ashdown Forest,
No facilities but there is an excellent pub in Underriver

This nature reserve is great for a good walk. I was not expecting it to be as hilly as it was. You really can work up a sweat.

The view of London from the top is breathtaking. It is like a bit of a maze, thank God for the signs.

It is a great place for dog walkers, joggers and anyone that just wants a piece of tranquility.

One of the best views in London, overlooking the city from the top of a small but steep hill. If you are around honor oak or forest hill it is worth the walk up

The lower part of this nature reserve is really good for dog walkers. The upper paved section often has cyclists, riders and runners making it less ideal for my over friendly border collies.

Further down the hill towards the A13 side of the park there are lots of mess bins and a big open field for fetch and a good run. Paths trough the wooded section offer good variety and the car park is well located for getting the mutts back on the lead before they decide to play with the traffic.

The greatest thing here is that there are lots of their dog friendly people, and their dogs, which makes it great for socialisation and means you can be less self-conscious about your friendly and inquisitive dog as they will most likely get a positive reception.

Later in the day you are likely to encounter professional dog walkers, but owners tend to come early to enjoy the walk alone.
