About RSPB Rainham Marshes

Rainham Marshes is a haven for all kinds of wildlife – birds, water voles, dragonflies and more – to explore on foot or by bike. There are a number of hides which give great views of wildlife, even without binoculars – but you can also buy or hire a pair. You'll find a cafe, shop and bike hire at our Visitor Centre. Children will enjoy the adventure and toddlers playgrounds and climbing boulders, as well as family activities and events.
