As you might expect in one of the original ‘New Towns’ planned and built after World War Two to relieve London overcrowding, Harlow offers excellent transport connections to the capital: it’s just a 38-minute train ride from Harlow’s two stations to Liverpool Street and the M11 is just a few minutes’ drive away, connecting you with East London and the M25 to the South and Cambridge to the North. But there are plenty more reasons why Harlow is regarded as one of the South East’s best locations for commuters. It’s well-provided with schools – with a choice of 4 state secondaries, 2 of which are Ofsted-rated ‘Good’, as are almost all of its many state primary schools.

The town’s original planners were careful to ‘build in’ lots of green space in the shape of the ‘Green Wedges’ that to this day still separate the neighbourhoods and provide safe space for wildlife. And they’re not the only green aspects of Harlow: over a third of the district is parkland or fields with public footpaths – Harlow Town Park is one of Britain’s biggest – and it boasts one of the most extensive cycle track networks in the country. That said, not all of Harlow’s delights are rural in nature. For shopping, residents really are spoilt for choice with local shops in each neighbourhood and, in addition to the fully pedestrianised town centre with its bustling market, the two major shopping centres, The Water Gardens and The Harvey Centre, between them offer some 90 stores and restaurants – as well as gyms, Cineworld cinema, a Quasar game centre, glow-in-the-dark crazy golf and lots more. And then there’s the Harlow Playhouse for live music and theatre just a couple of minutes’ walk away. With so much to offer, so close to London and yet surrounded by countryside, Harlow property prices are surprisingly affordable, making it an increasingly popular choice.
