Our visitor centre is set in the stunning grounds of Bedfords Park, a historic parkland site of 215 acres which is owned and managed by the London Borough of Havering. The nature reserve affords fantastic views over London and into Kent.
The visitor centre offers visitors a really warm welcome and the opportunity to find out about the wildlife within the Park. The park includes many valuable habitats such as mature woodland, species rich wildflower meadows, ponds, and marshy areas.
The visitor centre is built on the site of the former mansion and it commands superb views over much of east London and into Kent. Light refreshments, snacks and a gift shop are all within the visitor centre and there is a large decked area to relax on sunny days.
The upper section of the park offers a more landscaped parkland, while the lower section is managed for wildlife, with hay meadows and some mature woodland and scrub.
