A suburban location with superb city connections
Knightswood Place offers a variety of stylish apartments and is ideally located in east London. For city commuters, there's a direct line train service to Fenchurch Street, and if you need to travel out of town, there's very easy access to the M25.
Knightswood Place is in the popular suburban town of Rainham in Essex, close to the famous RSPB Rainham Marshes which border the town to the south. Our new development couldn't be in a better location, with excellent transport links, great local facilities, and the tranquillity of the town's RSPB reserve as well as the Hornchurch Country Park and the Belhus Woods Country Park on the doorstep. To add to all this, you'll be close to the Dartford Tunnel for easy access south of the river into Kent, and to the A13 if you want to head east for a change of scenery on the coast.
The health, safety and well-being of our workforce, customers, suppliers and our wider communities will always be our first priority.

Rainham's town centre provides a small selection of shops, plus a Tesco Extra less than a mile away, but the main focus in the region is the well-known Lakeside Shopping Centre - one of the largest shopping venues in Europe - just over 5 miles away. It has all the shops you could want, a wide choice of restaurants, a revolutionary new concept Vue cinema and a play centre.
If you're looking for open spaces locally for activities such as walking, cycling, flying a kite or feeding the birds, there are several parks close by including Beam Valley Country Park, The Chase Nature Reserve and Rainham Recreation Ground. Rainham Marshes RSPB Nature Reserve is almost on your doorstep, providing plenty of opportunities to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, spot some wildlife, and enjoy a leisurely stroll or a family picnic.
Ideal for families, Knightswood Place has two local primary schools nearby; La Salette Catholic Primary School and Rainham Village Primary School. Chafford Secondary School is also close to the Knightswood Place development, and there are many other schools with good reputations, in the surrounding area.
The reason this area is becoming such a popular place to live is because of its great transport links to London and the wider area. The A1306 road passes through Rainham and provides an alternative route to the main A13 road between central London and the Dartford Crossing. Several London Bus routes serve Rainham, including routes 103, 165, 287, 372, which provide connections to Barking, Elm Park, Hornchurch, Lakeside and Romford.
High Speed 1 and the London-Tilbury-Southend Line pass through the area, with Rainham train station served by c2c train services running between Fenchurch Street in the City of London and Grays in Thurrock - London fare zone 6.
Things to do in the area include a visit to the nearby 18th century Rainham Hall, now owned by the National Trust. Set in three acres of beautiful orchards, there are plenty of family activities, events and hands-on outdoor sessions. If you enjoy keeping fit, there are two golf clubs local to Knightswood Place, plus a choice of leisure centres and facilities including Chafford Sports Complex, which has two swimming pools, an exercise studio and a gym.
