However you spend your free time, you'll find Harlow brimming with entertainment, sport and leisure options. There are two shopping centres: the covered 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, whether it is a coffee with friends or fine dining. 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.
