An exhibition documenting the link between Epping Forest and Queen Victoria will open to the public on Saturday.

The display at The Temple in Wanstead Park opens on January 18 and runs until March 30.

On May 6 1882, Queen Victoria visited High Beach and dedicated Epping Forest to "the use and enjoyment of my people for all time".

The free exhibition, entitled A gift for all time, will feature memorabilia from the visit, such as commemorative medals, invitations, and the original official book of greetings.
