About this venue

Bedfords Park is one of Havering's largest parks and has achieved Green Flag status since 2007. Once a privately owned estate, it is a designated Local Nature Reserve, and is home to a herd of captive red deer which are a popular attraction. The extensive grounds of meadow and mature woodland provide a variety of walks and the opportunity to bird watch. Worth visiting is the impressive visitor's centre which is run by the Essex Wildlife Trust. Here you can buy light refreshments and relax and enjoy the panoramic views across the borough to London.
