Bring along the family and get hands-on during the February half-term at Rainham Hall.

We'll be hosting a variety of different activities including kite making and seed planting. Our 'Campfire Cooking' event will be returning due to popular demand.  Each activity is £3 per ticket. For all activities we recommend little ones (and grown ups too) wear old clothes that they don’t mind getting dirty.

Wednesday 14 February, 11am-12pm: Make your own kite (suitable for 5-12 year olds). Tick off No.7 from the 50 things to do before you're 11 and ¾ list and make your own kite at Rainham Hall.

Thursday 15 February, 11am-12pm: Plant it, grow it and eat it (suitable for 5-9 year olds). Learn how to sow seeds in recycled pots.

Friday 16 February, 11am-3pm (half hour slots): Campfire cooking (suitable for 5-12 year olds). Inspired for our exhibition about the WWII nursery at Rainham Hall, we'll be gathering around the campfire to toast marshmallows as children did in years gone by. Booking online in advance is essential for this event.

Saturday 17 February, 11am-12pm: Plant it, grow it and eat it (suitable for 5-9 year olds). Learn how to sow seeds in recycled pots.

Family facilities

Baby changing facilities and toilets can be found just behind the Brewhouse and Stables Café. We offer a great picnic box for children and a selection of sandwiches and light lunches for grown-ups. There is plenty of seating inside and outside the Stables Café and you are more than welcome to bring a picnic rug and relax in the garden with your lunches. Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult at all times when visiting Rainham Hall or participating in our activities. If you have any questions just ask a member of our team.

Rainham Hall re-opens to the public on 10 February 2018 following winter closure and will be open 11am-4pm Wednesday to Sunday; the Stables Café and Community Gardens are open 10am-5pm Wednesday to Sunday. Normal admission applies to the Hall, but we have great value family tickets and National Trust membership available to buy. The Community Gardens are free to explore.  For more information about visiting Rainham Hall during February half-term just get in touch:
