About the area
Havering sits on the northeast edge of the capital with an area approaching 40 square miles. A half of Havering is situated in the Green Belt and boasts three country parks, including Havering Country Park, a favourite riding and hot-air ballooning location, Hornchurch Country Park, which is excellent for bird watchers, and Bedfords Park – home to a population of deer. Romford Market, opened in 1247, attracts crowds of shoppers to buy clothes, antiques, bric-a-brac, fabrics, food, and records, as does the Liberty Shopping Centre with its major stores. Take in a show at the Queen's Theatre in Hornchurch, which stages a dazzling variety of professional and amateur productions.
Havering is one of the largest London boroughs. During hundreds of years, the daily lives of the local dwellers have barely changed. Today, it is still closely linked with agriculture and farming. The people who prefer eco-products still come here to buy organic products from the real farmers.
If you are interested in history, we recommend visiting Havering Museum, open to the public since May 2010.
Many people find this area suitable for long-term residence due to its numerous parks, which, by the way, are very popular with horse riders.
