Price: £2 per child (£1.50 for RSPB members)

Booking essential

Drop in to Rainham Marshes this school holiday to take part in some fabulous family activities.

You can hire an explorer bag from reception for £3 at any time during the holidays, or there is pond dipping on Tuesday 28-Thursday 30 May. You can spend the day discovering Rainham Marshes - enjoy our family activities, play in the adventure playground, enjoy lunch or a snack in the cafe and browse in our shop. 

Enjoy pond dipping - investigate what creatures you can find living in our ponds. You don't need to bring any equipment, we'll have everything you need.

Pond dipping is really popular and we have limited spaces - if you  would like to guarantee your time slot give us a call on 01708 899851 to book, if you turn up on the day we should be able to squeeze you in but you may need to wait for a few minutes to start.

Times: 10.30 am-12 noon or 1.30-3 pm

We suggest arriving half an hour early to give you time to collect your tickets and get to our special pond dipping area (why not take part in the self guided trail along the way). We suggest wearing good shoes or wellies.
