tried & tested

Tried & Tested blogs are a great way for us to share amazing venues and attractions with you. We visit lots of local venues and attractions ourselves and write about our experiences.

We are also happy to share 'Reader Recommendations' too as we know just how important it is to hear from other parents.

If you would like to arrange a Tried & Tested blog at your attraction by Mum's guide to Romford,  please contact us here.

Reader Recommends: Warley Place Nature Reserve


Our reader, Lisa-Marie, has shared her visit to Warley Place Nature Reserve in Brentwood with us. Warley Place is open every day during daylight hours, from 9am-6pm. This 25 acre reserve is now maintained as a nature reserve by Essex Wildlife Trust. There are some spectacular flowers to be enjoyed throughout the year, especially in the spring. The daffodils and bluebells looks stunning!

Lisa-Marie shared a couple of useful tips with us:

  • The car park is FREE but small and fills up quickly when the sun is out.
  • You cannot take your dog with you when you visit this venue. 

There is a marked trail to follow and it is advised to keep to the paths.
