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 (if the sun is out). 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.

Normal admission applies to the Hall, but we have great value family tickets and National Trust membership available to buy.
