New homes in Rainham

  • Excellent transport and commuter links

Knightswood Place will offer a great choice of two, three and four bedroom homes and is ideally located in South-East London. For commuters, it provides access to the M25 and also has a direct line train station to London Fenchurch Street.

Rainham's town centre has a small selection of shops including a Tesco Extra but the main focus in the region is the well-known Lakeside Shopping Centre - one of the largest shopping venues in Europe. Just over 5 miles away, as well as a vast array of shops, it boasts a wide choice of restaurants, a revolutionary new concept Vue cinema and a play centre.

If you're looking for open spaces locally for activities such as walking, cycling, flying a kite or feeding the birds, there are several parks close by including Beam Valley Country Park, The Chase Nature Reserve and Rainham Recreation Ground. Rainham Marshes RSPB Nature Reserve is almost on your doorstep, providing plenty of opportunities to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, spot some wildlife, and enjoy a leisurely stroll or a family picnic.

Other pastimes in the area include a visit to the nearby18th century Rainham Hall, now owned by the National Trust. Set in three acres of beautiful orchard, there are plenty of family activities, talks and hands-on outdoor sessions. If you enjoy keeping fit, there are two golf clubs local to the Knightswood Place plus selection of leisure centres and facilities including Chafford Sports Complex with its two swimming pools, an exercise studio and a gym.

Good choice of local schooling

Ideal for families, Knightswood Place has two local primary schools nearby; La Salette Catholic Primary School and Rainham Village Primary School.

With London city centre just 14.5 miles away from Knightswood Place, it not only makes this development perfect for commuters but great for day trips into London. With such a choice of fresh modern homes and things to do, Knightswood Place is the perfect place to call home…

Furthermore, for those who want a family day out, the 18th century Rainham Hall is now owned by the National Trust. Set in three acres of beautiful orchard, there are plenty of family activities, talks, evening lates and hands-on outdoor sessions.

Rainham is ideally located near to Hornchurch, which is the main cultural hub of the borough with a large theatre and many arts spaces, and Romford offers the largest regional concentration of entertainment facilities.




The reason this area is becoming such a popular place to live is because of its great transport links to London and the wider area. The A1306 road passes through Rainham and acts an alternative route to the main A13 road between central London and the Dartford Crossing.

Rainham train station is served by c2c train services running between Fenchurch Street in the City of London and Grays in Thurrock, London fare zone 6.

Several London Bus routes serve Rainham, including routes 103,165,287,372, which provide connections to Barking, Elm Park, Hornchurch, Lakeside and Romford.

The London Loop key walking route passes through Rainham, and it forms the end point of section 23 from Upminster Bridge.



From the A13 towards Tilbury and Dartford, take the exit for Ferry Lane and at the roundabout take the first exit towards Ferry Lane North.
