Visited as we were manning a stall for a wedding fair. Nice building and surrounding gardens. It's like a green oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle.
Since they did this up about 8? years ago it's really found a place in local hearts.Thank goodness it didn't become a burger restaurant. It's lovely if small scale. I especially like the kitchen and r... read more »

One of my favourite parks. Really beautiful and peaceful, hoever, the mansion wa a let down. Redbridge seem to have invested a lot of money on publicity for Valentine's mansion, my only wish is that it lived up to the hype. Sadly for the most of the last century this building was converted to council offices - and it shows. You basically go from one empty room to another with sparse exhibits in each and no joined up thinking. In one bedroom (contains a bed and writing desk) there is a photo showing what the pencil marks the builder made - why not preserve it and cover with perspex? They have clear plastic chairs everywhere - why not have period pieces? There is currently a Belgian refugee exhibition in one room which has a lot of potential. It would have been great if this room didn't look like an office with a temporary hoarding with a piece of broken achitrave on one side. If only every room was like the kitchen area which has been perfectly preserved/recreated. Very sad and needs investment and exhibits. 4 stars for the park and 2 stars for the museum.
Good place for relax with family or friends with natural beauty.

very charming place
A delightful mansion and museum, this building in Ilford's Valentines Park has recently undergone a complete refurbishment. Entry is free of charge, and you can see many of the principle rooms of the house on your visit - each one representing a different era in the house's history. Do make a point to visit the ground floor room that contains wall-to-wall glass cases filled with origami birds created by a local artist - magical!
Is a beautiful place Is my favorite park
