  • As a Havering resident it's great to have Rainham Marshes on our doorstep, especially as it's free for locals. There are 3 great maped out walks and it's a good place to be at any time of the year, no...  more »
  • I have visited Rainham Marshes RSPB site on several occasions this year, depending on the time of year, you can see an array of bird/wildlife it is well laid out and the staff are always very helpful ...  more »
  • Surprising to find such a peaceful spot so close to the M25/A13 junction. You can enjoy the river walk, or the trails through the RSPB reserve and get closer to the wildlife. Lots of marsh frogs and v...  more »

  • Great place to visit with children and family. A word of warning. You CANNOT take dogs into the Reserve! You can walk your dog on the outside of the reserve where there is a decent path commanding excellent views of the Thames. That said, the potential to see some amazing insects and animals makes this a rather large jewel in the RSPB crown, as my attached photographs demonstrate. So in short come along see, discover, learn and respect nature and the environment.
  • Beautiful scenery of nature. Good to walk and catch a bit of fresh air. Parking available as well
  • Extremely peaceful and lovely place to walk with family/pets/friends etc. Can rent binoculars as well for those who are interested in bird watching. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
  • One of the RSPB's most family friendly reserves with plenty of activities to keep the children interested, wheelchair access, binoculars (and even bikes) for hire, a shop and a cafe - there are even toilets half way round the board walk for those who can't wait until you get all the way back to the visitors centre! Special activities like pond dipping and a grasshopper safari are available during the summer holidays. Highly recommended.
  • Nice place with a good variety of habitat. Good for birds, insects and reptiles. Good facilities and well maintained.
