Romford is a large town in east London, and the administrative centre of the London Borough of Havering. It is located 14.1 miles (22.7 km) northeast of Charing Cross and is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan. It was historically a market town in the county of Essex and formed the administrative centre of the liberty of Havering, until it was dissolved in 1892. Good road links and the opening of the railway station in 1839 were key to the development of the town and the economic history of Romford is underpinned by a shift from agriculture to light industry and then to retail and commerce. As part of the suburban growth of London in the 20th century, Romford significantly expanded and increased in population, becoming a municipal borough in 1937 and has formed part of Greater London since 1965. It now forms one of the largest commercial, retail, entertainment and leisure districts outside central London and has a developed night-time economy.

After visiting the park, was greeted by a beautiful Fountain, and pleasant to see people fishing, a old house with a Cafe over looking the Blacks Lake.
This park even has its own dedicated Police Officers which is amazing, they are very knowledgeable,
Well done Havering.

A beautiful child friendly, dog friendly country park steeped in history and overlooking London; what more could you ask for! Oh and free parking! There is a Visitors’ Centre, which includes a shop and tea room. It also caters for children’s birthday parties complete with guide and outdoor activities. There are some lovely walks and a fishing lake too. I believe the park and surrounding area was used for hunting in Tudor times.
Whatever the season, Bedford’s Park has something to offer, definitely worth a visit!

Absolutely dreadful night. Booked a meal, food was cold, covered in grease. Chips not cooked raw in middle.
Waitress was exceptionally rude, obviously didnt want to be there.
Filthy, disgusting restaurant, stale food all ground into carpet. Group of lads on stag night, swearing, shouting ending up fighting each other.
Two girls doing lines of coke in toilet.
Screaming kids, no thanks, about time they pulled this hell hole down

This is more of a church hall then a theatre. Seats are not the best to sit on for a few hours. And its first come first served for seats. No seat can be booked so you have to get there when the doors open to get a good seat and view. Seats are all on the same level so if your at the rear of the hall your view is not that good. Lighting could be improved as well on the stage. Well so called stage as it is only 18 inches of the floor. No bar but tea and coffee. O n a good note they do have some good acts, But you would be better off watching them at a main theatre...

Havering Museum collects and preserves objects which record the history of the area that is now the London Borough of Havering, making them accessible to a wide audience through Exhibitions, events and activities, education programmes, publications and web pages. The Museum defines what makes Havering Havering, celebrating the achievements of local people past and present.
We stumbled across this museum in a side road - staff were most attentive & were keen to have a chat. The museum is on the old brewery site & is quite small with some interesting material, if you grew up in this area, otherwise it is not overly interesting.

this could be such a lovely shopping area, if only it were home to a farmers market or local crafts market..or similar. there's a good restaurant /food place serving salt beef sarnies..& an organic butchers. HOWEVER..
The rest of it is nothing to write home about. Badly needs total revamp and improvement.

Went here on Friday what a let down over half the market was empty of stalls such a shame this used to be a packed full market.
If the local council were to do more to encourage stall holders this could be a great place to shop again, until they get more stalls it's not really worth the bother.
