Afternoon walk

Massive open space great for a stroll round with the kids. Has some animals to look at and a decent cafe which is reasonably priced.

Beautiful countryside to escape the concrete jungle
Apr. 2021
Great for dog walking, its nice and quiet and if you take a couple of bags of carrots with you, you can feed the deer whilst you are there.

215 Acres of Greenbelt Park!
Nov. 2020
On the edge of the London Borough of Havering, this is the start of the greenbelt around London. It is huge! Probably named after John Bedford(e) who owned it in 1362, it obviously has a long history. The mansion house, built in 1771 and extended in the 1800s, was only demolished in 1958 - a great shame as the east side of London lacks such historical buildings. Only the steps remain - just near the Visitor Centre, built on the site in 2003. There is a good adventure playground near the car park.

As the park covers the slope of a hill, there are good views towards London and across the Thames into Kent. But the park is most famous for its red deer - always a winner with the children!

Loads Of Fun
Feb. 2020
The tracks and trails through the park and forest are very wet and muddy. If you are walking, boots are a must but for me, the best fun is riding a mountain bike in the mud and goo especially when there are hills involved too.
The lake was almost overflowing but you could still find a way through on the gravel paths.

Free

Great place to spend a few hours. Nice country park and a great place to take the dog for a run. On a sunny Sunday morning it attracts a fair number of visitors with plenty of parking which is FREE!!! as opposed to the country parks just down the road under the management of Brentwood council. They are also very nice but be prepared to leave some part of your body to medical science to pay the parking cost. One downside to Bedfords is the cafe. Nice little place but run on a strictly amateur basis which is not so bad if you missed your breakfast and fancy a bacon sandwich. Not saying it takes a long time to get it served up but if you are a male you will probably need a second shave when you get home. That’s such a shame as these kind of establishments if run properly can be real money spinners and a go to place if the foods is good.

Huge park, great visitor centre
Feb. 2020
This park has some excellent views out over London, has deer and some delightful woodland and grassland. Of course it can get pretty muddy, so walking shoes/boots are recommended if it's been raining. Not necessarily good for running as it can get slippery, but head out and down the hill into Havering-Atte-Bower and there is some good pavement running to be had, plus it's a pretty village. At the park, the visitor centre is very good with a cafe, gift shop and maps.

Fantastic place to go.
Dec. 2019 • Family
We regularly visit this park as it has beautiful walks. The new play area is fantastic and, whilst it has become a lot busier since it’s installation, the car park is still free which is great. The visitors centre is spacious and has good quality and always clean toilets. Don’t forget the carrots for the deer, and you will have a great day!

Beautiful park

Nice park, red deer in an enclosure, pond with ducks and a variety of birds. There is a walled garden that is tended by volunteers that grow and sell vegetables and flowers, well worth a visit

A wonderful park, with a great visitor's centre. Mixture of open spaces and woods. Always something different to see. Lots of activities run for children, throughout the year.
