Rainham Marshes is a must to visit for kids and families who love wildlife and being outdoors.
The visitor centre has huge picture windows to give you a good view over the marsh so you can look out for wading birds, dragonflies, birds of prey, water voles and many more!
The centre is also full of environmentally friendly features, some of which have won awards, plus helpful staff who are only to happy to answer any questions you may have…and if they don't know, they will try to find out for you.
There are boardwalks throughout the reserve, providing easy access for pushchairs and wheelchairs. There are two hides to use for bird watching and several viewing areas.
A large number of events are held throughout the year, some specifically for kids, and others for families.
You can easily spend a couple of hours here, there are about 2km (approximately1.2 miles), of boardwalk, an almost unbelievable number of birds to spot and plenty of interesting facts to discover in the visitor centre and hides.
