Located in Essex, on the border of Hertfordshire, Harlow is at the centre of the London-Stansted-Cambridge-Corridor; located just five minutes from the M11, which directly connects the town to London and Cambridge. Stansted Airport is just 20 minutes away and the centre of London can be reached by train in 35 minutes.
Harlow is a pioneering and enterprising place. Fibre optic technology, which is still revolutionising communications around the world, was invented in Harlow in 1966. Harlow has a 51 hectare Enterprise Zone (EZ), which is one of the 48 sites across the UK selected by Government to provide a platform for economic growth and deliver benefits for business. A new Life Sciences MedTech Innovation Centre, a new Science Park and a state-of-the-art data centre are all being built in the EZ; building on the town’s pioneering traditions and bringing jobs to the area.
Further developments in the town include the creation of Public Health England’s (PHE) £400m world-leading public health science campus. Harlow is the place to be now and in the future.
As a place to live, visit, work and play Harlow offers everything from arts, culture and theatre to sport, parks and nature reserves. It has one of the largest public outdoor sculpture collections in the country with contributions from Auguste Rodin and Henry Moore to Elizabeth Frink and Barbara Hepworth. There are two art galleries, one being the Gibberd Gallery in the Civic Centre; there is also a public art studio, a large theatre and two small community theatres, a town museum, state-of-the-art sports facilities, acres and acres of parks and award-winning open spaces and nature reserves, including one of the largest urban parks in the country – Harlow Town Park.
