| Events in Rainham | 10 Places to Stay

Rainham is a suburban town in the London Borough of Havering in East London. It includes the nearby small village of Wennington, and is located 13 miles from London. Rainham gives its name to the Rainham Marshes which border the town to the south and extend to Purfleet in the west. The 18th century Rainham Hall sits adjacent to the church. It is now owned by the National Trust. St. Helen and St. Giles Church is a recognisable local Norman landmark and the oldest building in Havering, retaining many of its original features. A large clocktower War Memorial is the focal point of Rainham, situated on Broadway. The Angel Inn public house on Broadway, previously known as the Redberry, was demolished and rebuilt in 1905. Before the industrialisation of the Thames in Rainham, 'Rainham Beach' was a tourist spot frequented by day-trippers from east London. The Thames at Rainham is the location of The Diver sculpture. The River Ingrebourne flows through Hornchurch, divides into Rainham Creek and Rainham Marsh. Rainham Marshes Nature Reserve is a RSPB reserve and the largest remaining expanse of wetland bordering the upper reaches of the Thames Estuary. Several large companies have head offices based in Rainham, situated mainly along the A13.
