Valentines Mansion & GardensBuilt in the late 17th century and set in acres of wonderful countryside in the heart of Ilford, Valentines Mansion and Gardens is a great day trip for Londoners. The beautiful brick country house was restored recently with Redbridge council and Heritage Lottery funds and this historic yet contemporary venue boasts a splendid Victorian kitchen and Georgian rooms, with gorgeous views over surrounding parkland. The stunning grounds include an old English walled garden, a Victorian rose garden, a canal, some rococo grottoes and a dovecote. The gardens host a range of events, from open-air theatre to Sunday farmers' markets, while the interior of Valentines Mansion often exhibits contemporary art collections and installations. Located just five minutes from Gants Hill tube (Central Line) and open three days a week (Tues, Wed & Sun), Valentines Mansion and Gardens is also an ideal destination for families, with hands-on games, activities and discovery trails on offer.
