The Havering Museum is a celebration of local history and deserves a visit. Much of the inspiration for this idea came from Ian Wilkes a local entrepreneur and fervent amateur historian. Go and have a look for an hour or so.

Staff are well knowledgeable about the history and narratives surrounding the artefacts in the museum as well as incredibly friendly, it’s a great small museum cheaply priced and has an option for tea and coffee and biscuits when going in a group

Run by a truly dedicated team of historians. It is small but filled with exhibits and information. I think we spent about an hour and a half there. They have regular talks on the local area.

Visited several times but not recently. Everything you could possibly want to learn about the fascinating history of Romford.Beautifully displayed and small enough to not feel overwhelmed with too much detailed information.
