Follow the London Loop  which starts at Upminster Bridge Station, along the Ingrebourne River and down to Rainham Village. There are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the views on this 4 mile walk. You can take a rest stop at the Ingrebourne Valley Visitor Centre before continuing your journey.
The walk ends at Rainham Hall where you can enjoy three acres of Gardens.
The Hall is open Thursdays to Saturdays, 11am to 4pm until 31 December (closed 25 December). Normal Hall admission will apply, gardens are free to enter.
After exploring the Hall and Gardens, you can then hop on the C2C train line (from Rainham Station) back into London or take a bus back up towards Upminster.
