Public transport
The closest bus routes to Bretons are the 165 and 252. The 165, which runs from Romford to Rainham, crosses Wood Lane approximately halfway along the route, and this is where you would need to alight. The open space is then just a short walk along Wood Lane and then left along Rainham Road to the main entrance. The 252 between Collier Row and Hornchurch passes along Upper Rainham Road past Harrow Lodge Park. The bus stop outside the park is the closest to alight for Bretons, and then you will need to take a short walk along Rainham Road to the pedestrian entrance just past the Tube line bridge and next to the council's community bus depot. Detailed public transport travel information and journey planner can be found on the Transport for London website​.
