However you spend your free time, you'll find Harlow brimming with entertainment, sport and leisure options. There are two shopping centres: the Harvey Centre, home to a six-screen Cineworld, and The Water Gardens, which includes an Asda store. If that isn't enough, London, with its world-class retail offering, is just 30 minutes away by train.
Harlow and the surrounding area offer plenty of choice if you want to eat out. If you enjoy drama, dance or music, you'll discover an eclectic mix at The Harlow Playhouse, or you could catch a train to sample the delights of London's theatre land.
