Grays is the largest town in the borough of Thurrock, enjoying easy access to both Kent and Essex via the M25 motorway and Queen Elizabeth II Bridge. Just 20 miles to the east of London, on the north bank of the River Thames and 2 miles east of the M25 motorway, it’s easy to see why it’s become a popular place to live. With good affordability and convenience, Grays is an ideal location for young professionals, first time buyers and growing families.

In Grays and nearby Thurrock you’ll find entertainment venues to suit every taste and pocket, from cinemas, restaurants and bars to theatre, cabaret and clubs, as well as an exciting round of annual events to enjoy. The town’s bustling high street is just a short walk from the development and a large Morrisons is on hand for your weekly shop. And, just over two miles away, Lakeside Shopping Centre, which is one of the largest complexes in Europe, will satisfy the most ardent shopper!
Fitness enthusiasts are spoilt for choice as the borough's leisure centres boast a wide range of facilities and, in addition, there are watersports and motorsports centres in the area. During certain weeks of the year you can also take a trip on a paddle steamer to London and the East Anglia and Kent coasts or cruise the Thames on the MV Princess Pocahontas.
If you’re looking for open spaces for activities such as cycling, picnics or perhaps just a leisurely stroll, there are several parks close by, including Belhus Woods Country Park, which has its own golf club. Chafford Gorges Nature Park is also easily accessible with its 200 acres of green space for both local residents and wildlife to enjoy.
There are also two local parks: Grays Town Park located in the centre of Grays which boasts a large grassy open space, children’s play area and basketball and tennis courts, plus the popular Grays Beach Riverside Park. Overlooking the Thames, this much-visited park includes a sand pit play area, skate ramp, aerial zip-line, multi-use ball court and a large open grass field, perfect for picnics.
With its convenient location, excellent transport links, keenly-priced homes and plentiful local amenities, Urban Central could be your ideal place to call home.
