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: Maldon Promenade Park


One of our followers, Rhoda, has been in touch to share what she loves about Maldon Promenade Park.

She told us "We went to Maldon Promenade Park with our 3.5 year old and had an awesome time! It was brilliant! It took us about 45 minutes to get there by car and parking was £6 for 4 hours. They have a huge pirate ship play area that my little boy spent literally hours on! There’s also pirate themed crazy golf next to it (we didn’t do that, but it would have cost around £17.50 for the 3 of us), they have a splash park for the Summer and you can also hire beach huts."

"There’s a big grassy area next to the pirate ship for picnics, and there are also plenty of takeaway cafes and public toilets nearby. You can walk by the water and see the boats, and there’s also a big pond area with a big sandy area for kids to play in, near to some more cafes and toilets. I’d highly recommend it and we’ll be going back soon."

Thanks for sharing Rhoda, it sounds like you all had a terrific day. At the time of publication, the splash park was not yet reopened. You can check with their Facebook page here for updates.
