Culture in Brentwood
Brentwood Theatre is the town’s main venue for professional and amateur drama productions, music, dance and many other shows. In addition, the Brentwood Leisure Trust has a multi-purpose facility that can seat up to 2,000: shows here include rock, comedy, classical music, choral music and international sports events, to name but a few.
Although relatively small, Brentwood Cathedral is an understated masterpiece – combining the Gothic and Italianate Classical styles quite effortlessly. Alternatively, the Warley Place Nature Reserve is an interesting place to visit as well as being an oasis of calm and tranquillity.
Things to do in Brentwood
Unless you’ve been living under a cave for the last five years, you will probably (for better or worse) have heard about the antics of The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) gang. Sugar Hut Village nightclub – featured regularly in the show – will be of interest to those with a penchant for an Essex night out.
For kids, meanwhile, Old MacDonald’s Farm, King George’s Playing Fields and Hopefield Animal Sanctuary are all great days out. For those looking for something that is a bit more out-there and unique, Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker at Kelvedon Hatch is a fascinating, informative look at the largest and deepest Cold War bunker open to the public in the whole country. The Baytree Shopping Centre, on the other hand, should cater to the needs of eager bargain hunters, while the town also has a number of boutique and independent stores.
Student Life in Brentwood
Brentwood’s excellent transport links – you can be in London Waterloo within 40 minutes and it’s a 17 minute drive to Upminster tube station – make living in the town and commuting in to one of the capital’s numerous universities a possibility. Brentwood’s buzzing night-life, wide range of restaurants, bars and local shops and close proximity to some wonderful, unspoilt countryside give it obvious appeal.
Buying in Brentwood
The easy links to London, the slower pace of life, the community atmosphere and the appeal to families and young professionals of living outside the city have all helped to make Brentwood one of the most popular commuter hubs in the country. It’s not cheap but you are likely to get way more bang for your buck in this part of the world. Plus, you’ll have a better work/life balance, easier access to the countryside and seaside, and a sense of belonging that you might struggle to find so easily in London.
