Plant it, grow it and eat it!

Mother and daughter planting in the garden

Looking for something to do with the whole family during the Easter holidays?

Come and help our community gardener in the “dig for victory” inspired vegetable patch. You can learn all about the sorts of vegetables they might have grown during years of rationing, when the Nursery children were at Rainham Hall. Afterwards you can tick off number 41 from our 50 things to do before you're 11 and 3/4 activities.

Wednesday 4 April 2018, 11am-12pm

Wednesday 11 April 2018, 11am-12pm

Tickets are £3 per child and available in the Stables Café on the day. This activity will take place outside so wear appropriate warm, old clothes and boots. We will provide gloves and equipment. Also please note that this activity is not a drop in session, so please arrive at 11am.

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.

Rainham Hall is open 11-4pm 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 membership available. The community gardens are free to explore.  For more information about visiting Rainham Hall this Easter just get in touch.
