Rainham Hall is a brown and red brick Georgian townhouse built in 1729 for Captain John Harle, who used it as a residence but also as a showcase to display the high quality interior furnishings that he sold. It is a 3 storey house under a tile roof, entered through a classical doorway of Corinthian pilasters. Behind the house is a tranquil walled garden.
The appeal of Rainham Hall is the elegant, though not extravagant, Georgian interior decoration, including panelled rooms, a carved wooden staircase, 18th century plasterwork, elegant ironwork railings and gates, and trompe l'oiel painted walls. Guided tours are abvailable, but there are limited opening hours; please see National Trust website for details.
