Upminster is a suburban town with around 14,000 homes.
We have good shopping facilities, with an independent department store, and well known companies represented, such as Waitrose, M&S Food, Aldi and Iceland. There is a large number of restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. The regional shopping centres of Lakeside (15min) and Bluewater, Kent (30min), are easy to access.
It has a range of excellent primary and secondary schools, nearby Sixth Form College, and College of Further and Higher Education. We also have a school for children with Special Educational needs, and a private Montessori School.
Transport links to London (20 min.) are excellent, as is the coast (30min.).
