We highly recommend that children wear a waterproof jacket. Waterproof trousers or a waterproof all-in-one suit are also recommended. There are two main reasons for this. The first is protection – from things that can ‘sting and prick’ and the second is for protection from the elements – mud and water! Strong waterproof footwear is essential – wellies are really good in wet/ muddy weather. Perivale Wood has brambles and nettles so everyone coming to the wood (including all adults) must be in long trousers and long sleeved tops with sturdy shoes/wellington boots. Young people can wear their own gloves. We also recommend that you ensure your young person has the appropriate sun protection to include sun lotion applied prior to their attendance and head wear for example a sun hat or a cap. It is very important that all children are wearing insect repellent during the late spring, summer and early autumn.
The entrance to the reserve is from Sunley Gardens in Perivale (UB6 7PE) – a short walk northwards from Perivale London Underground (Central Line) station.
The nearest bus stop is for the 297, and the E5 and 95 both stop on Teignmouth Gardens, a short walk away.
