Living in Essex
Linking London to the south west and East Anglia to the north, Essex’s geographical location is one of strategic importance. South of the county is home to the Thames Gateway, which is one of the UK’s key growth areas, and in the north east there is Harwich, a major port to northern Europe. We also have two growing airports in Stansted and Southend.
