Shopaholics are only half an hour's drive from Bluewater and Lakeside, music fans can see what's on at the O2 arena, while wildlife lovers can meander through Epping Forest, the largest public open space in Greater London.Nearby you can take in a play at the Queen's Theatre or have a flutter at Romford Greyhound Centre - one of the few remaining dog tracks in London.
