Rainham is a lovely suburban town right on the outskirts of the Greater London metropolitan area, with all the amenities that brings. But it is not just an urban jungle, it is also sandwiched between two stunning wild green spaces: the Rainham Marshes RSPB Nature Reserve and the Chase Nature Reserve. Making Rainham a perfect location if you like both the city and the outdoors.
Situated right on the River Thames, Rainham was traditionally a major hub for docking. Many industries have faded, but since the 2012 Olympics this area has been the target of massive regeneration projects. There has never been a better time to move to Rainham. The town itself has a lot to offer in terms of retail and places to eat. It is also very close to Hornchurch which is the local cultural hub due to a thriving arts scene. Also don’t miss a visit to the historic Rainham Hall, a dedicated National Trust site.
Just 25 minutes from central London by train or 20 minutes from London City Airport by car, Rainham is incredibly well connected. But make sure you hire the best removals company available with reallymoving so that you use local experts that can navigate the hectic London roads on your behalf.
