Gidea Park

For those who enjoy quick transport links into the City yet still wish for a quieter way of life, Gidea Park provides the perfect balance.

For those who enjoy quick transport links into the city yet still wish for a quieter way of life, Gidea Park provides the perfect balance. Gidea Park benefits from its own mainline railway station, with journey times from London Liverpool Street taking as little as 27 minutes. The A12 borders the north of the town and J29 of the M25 is only about 4 miles away. What’s more the station will be on Crossrail making connectivity to the city, West End and beyond even easier.

Being within the London Borough of Havering, Gidea Park benefits from excellent bus routes and District Line tube stations, such as Hornchurch are also nearby.

The major retail centre of Romford is only about a mile away with its famous market and large selection of shops and facilities including the major Liberty and Brewery shopping centres.

Raphael Park is on the border of Gidea Park and Romford and has a beautiful lake as a centre piece. Children can enjoy the good sized play area, while others may want to have a game of tennis or simply a leisurely stroll around the park.

For sports enthusiasts, there is a choice of golf clubs and numerous gyms and leisure facilities within the vicinity whilst less than 2 miles away in neighbouring Hornchurch is the highly regarded Queens Theatre.
