The London Borough of Havering is London’s north-easternmost Borough, comprised largely of suburbs previously belonging to Essex. Hornchurch, Upminster and Romford are Havering’s most prominent towns.
The borough’s housing stock consists largely of twentieth-century builds. These come in all shapes and sizes, with detached, semi-detached and terraced houses on the market, as well as smaller, bungalow homes available. There are also estates of former social housing which are now appearing on the private market. Of course, a variety of flats are available too, and the arrival of the Elizabeth Line in the borough has seen an increase in the development of new-build apartments as well.
The National Trust owned Rainham Hall is a fantastic family day out, with a lovely garden space open throughout the year. Although the Hall is not fully open currently, the cafe and gardens make it more than worthwhile to visit. If you’re particularly interested in the local history of the area, then the Havering Museum in Romford is also a must-see!
Although some distance from Central London, Havering does have connections to the city. The District Line terminates in Upminster, while there are railway connections to Liverpool Street and Stratford from Romford, too. The incoming Elizabeth Line will halve current journey times from Romford to Central London.
