A lovely country park with beautiful walks (wheelchair/push-chair friendly). There are some lovely views and places for spotting wildlife. The visitor centre is welcoming and informative with very interesting displays linked to the fascinating aviation past. We enjoyed bacon sandwiches and hot chocolates at the super little cafe. Plenty of seating outside for those with dogs. Our children loved the play-park too. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

I go here regularly for art lessons but people go for all sorts of reasons, including running, walking groups and dog walking. The centre is a great base to meet friends and for a starting and finishing point for all activities. Lots of local information available about the wildlife and history of Hornchurch Airfield. A lovely shop, stocked with lots of interesting things to buy. The staff are welcoming, mostly volunteers. The cafe serves a range of snacks, sandwiches, jacket potatoes, paninis, soups and a good range of teas and coffees. A good seating area inside. Also a large outside area with benches for good weather and people with dogs. A great view across the lake with interesting opportunities for birdwatching. Free parking in a recently enlarged car park too.

Lovely setting, nice little park, lovely cafe, food very expensive for what it is... it’s a cafe not a Michelin star restaurant. Staff are older ladies (assuming they volunteer there) and are very rude. Asked for 3 coffees, was not asked if was drinking in or taking away, first coffee was put in a mug and apologised to her that actually was take away and the lady huffed and puffed and gave us a dirty look. They obviously have training to use coffee machine maybe some extra training on how to treat paying customers and smile!

I love this place, loads of varied walks and an enormous amount of wildlife. The view from the hill, never disappoints. Today the woodpeckers were in their element. Stopped for a gorgeous coffee and cake in the visitor centre and was treated to the blue tits going wild on the feeders while the sparrows, chaffinches and collared doves waited on the crumbs. What a way to spend a day.
