Rainham Marshes is a fantastic day out for all the family. You can explore this lovely nature reserve throughout the year, and get close to the amazing wildlife. There are a number of hides that give great views of wildlife, even without binoculars.

You can explore the paths and boardwalks throughout the year, visit our adventure play area, enjoy a nice cuppa and homemade cake in our café, or join one of our fabulous family activities or events.

Don’t worry if you’ve not been here before – we can tell you about the reserve and where to walk, and families can borrow a wildlife challenge sheet (we’ve got some for ages 3–5, 6–10 and 10–13).

And of course there’s the wildlife – lots of wildlife! Butterflies, dragonflies, bees, birds, very cute water voles, marsh frogs and lots more.
