Top summer activities to do in Erith

Jul 06, 2018

The weather is warming up across the city, and luckily there are lots of activities to enjoy in Erith to make the most of the sunny days.

Check out our list of top five local activities to enjoy with the family this season!

Erith Fun Day – Saturday 7th July

A favourite with the local community, this year’s Erith Fun Day will be held at Erith Recreation Ground on Saturday 7th July from 12pm – 6pm. From games for the kids like ‘Beat the Goalie’, go-karts, rides and a climbing wall, to a petting farm and ‘Meet the Owls’ experience, this day out has everything you need to keep the kids entertained for the afternoon. And let’s not forget the adults – with live DJs and music, a licenced bar and photo booth, it has something for the whole family!

The Quarry will also be attending, so come down to meet us and find out about our new development.

Picnic in the park

Over 100 public parks and outdoor spaces are located across the London Borough of Bexley, including Lesnes Abbey Woods, Danson Park and Foots Cray Meadows. Dartford Heath is also just a stone’s throw away from Erith. Pack up some sandwiches, salads and sausage rolls, add some ice cold fruit juice and strawberries and cream, and set off for an afternoon picnic in Franks Park, just a stone’s throw from The Quarry.

Sailing on the Thames

Founded in 1900, Erith Yacht Club is located right on the River Thames, offering sailing programmes and powerboat training and catering to all levels and abilities. Join in on their summer ‘Sundowners’ on a Friday evening where members sail as the sun sinks into the sky and enjoy a drink or dinner in the bar afterwards. If a smaller vessel is more to your liking, Erith Rowing Club also offers lessons for those aged 15 and over, as well as social rowing.

Walks around the city

Erith is home to a huge variety of open green spaces, so reconnect with nature this summer on a walk with family or friends. The Thames Path Nature Trail offers a long walk or cycle along one side of the river, from East to West London. The Green Chain Walk is a 50 mile walk in London, divided into 11 sections. From Erith, you can walk through Lesnes Abbey to Thamesmead Riverside, or up to Bostall Woods. Finally, Erith makes up the first section of the London LOOP (London Outer Orbital Path), beginning at Erith station and finishing at Jubilee Country Park.

Visit Bexley Brewery

Cliff and Jane Murphy at Bexley Brewery brew a variety of different local ales which are available in pubs and clubs across Bexley. The brewery is also open to the public on selected days and offers tours and tasting events – all the makings for a perfect afternoon with friends in the sun.
