Spring walks to Rainham Hall
This spring why not step outside into the fresh air on a walk to Rainham Hall? There are great walks that take you through the Ingrebourne River Valley and down to Rainham Village. If you’re feeling really adventurous you can continue on through the Rainham Marshes. There are miles of beautiful countryside on London’s doorstep just waiting to be explored!
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 are free to enjoy three acres of Garden and our scrumptious cream teas in the Stables Café. The Hall features a brand new exhibition about the era when the building was used as a day nursery and is open Wednesday to Sunday 11am to 4pm. The Stables Café and Community Gardens are open Wednesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm. Light lunches are served in the Café from 12noon-2pm, but there is always a selection of cakes and sweet treats on offer.
This spring our Community Gardener, Jesse Lock, will be inviting visitors to join him on a short walk to hear about the development of the gardens and future projects. Come along on Thursday 1 June at 11am and join the walk for free.
After your visit you can hop on the C2C line back into London or take a bus back up towards Upminster. Or, if you are interested in continuing your walk, you can follow the last part of the loop  and follow the path along the Thames and through the marshes to the RSBP Rainham Marshes visitor centre.
