Rainham Hall and garden was built in 1729 by Captain John Harle and is one of the country’s finest examples of an early 18th-century merchant’s home. A National Trust property, it is just two minutes’ walk from Rainham Station (C2C), in the heart of the village. In its nearly 300 year history, Rainham Hall has been home to over 50 different inhabitants, and every two years we shine a spotlight on one of these residents, drawing inspiration from their lives. Our current resident is Anthony Denney, a photographer, interior designer and art collector who lived in the Hall in the 1960s.
There is something for all ages at Rainham Hall and we welcome school visits from all year groups. From mini beast hunts in the garden to local history sessions in the Hall, there is plenty to explore.
