Why move to Grays?

Once a sleepy fishing village, as remarked by diarist, Samuel Pepys, Grays has since evolved in recent years to become a bustling commercial hub for local businesses in Essex and the largest town in the borough of Thurrock with a diverse and multi-cultural community.

Grays attracts many visitors, primarily shoppers frequenting the nearby Lakeside shopping mall which has significantly bolstered the town’s retail prospects.

Transport links are very good with Grays being situated on the North bank of the Thames, close to the M25 motorway and only about 25 miles from London with easy rail connections to Fenchurch Street.

The 2,872 metre QEII Bridge, also just 4 miles away, is the longest cable stayed bridge in Europe and links the region to neighbouring Kent.

Grays falls within an area that the government has designated funding for as part of the Thames Gateway project.

The Thames Gateway is Europe’s largest regeneration project, stretching 40 miles along the Thames estuary from Canary Wharf in London to Southend in Essex and Sittingbourne in Kent.

As such a surge in house building is expected to cater for the influx of new residents.

Thurrock council has already announced funding to upgrade the town centre and Grays Beach, build new leisure facilities and support the creation of more than 4,500 new homes, including modern flats on the Thames Estuary.

With plenty of new homes to choose from and excellent schooling options, Grays is fast becoming a desirable location for disgruntled city workers and families alike with property rates responding accordingly.

Things to do in Grays

The vast Lakeside shopping centre at Thurrock, two or three miles away from Grays, offers one of the largest concentrations of shopping facilities in Europe as well as a nine-screen cinema.

It has a range of bars, restaurants and fast food outlets, as well as designer and more budget friendly shops.

Grays has its own theatre (Thameside Theatre), a library, an attractively landscaped beach and waterfront walkway area and a long history.

The town centre is vibrant and offers both weekend and mid-week Markets, eclectic nightlife and an eclectic mix of restaurants from traditional chippies and Pie and Mash, through to French, Italian, Indian, Turkish, Chinese, and Thai cuisine.

For an escape from the urban sprawl, venture slightly further afield to Chafford Gorges Nature Park, a 200-acre nature reserve managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust and designated as the site of biological and geological interest having once been a tropical sea.

Today, many visitors come for the avid bird watching or to take a gentle stroll through one of the many scenic paths.
