It has been ranked the most popular destination for Londoners looking to escape the smoke-filled streets of the capital in search of a better quality and balance of life.
Located on the north bank of the River Thames in the Thurrock region of Essex, Grays has surged in popularity in recent years as many disgruntled city workers look for more affordable and spacious living arrangements.
The 35-minute commute to the capital is lauded as a major plus point but you’d be wrong if you were thinking this is all this Essex town has going for it.
The nearby Lakeside Shopping Centre (one of the largest shopping areas in a single location within Europe) is a major employer in the region.
Although Lakeside’s presence has dampened the local high street ambitious plans to reinvigorate the town centre costing £3.7 million have been funded by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP).
Upgrading of existing buildings, new homes and businesses form part of overall strategy to attract more people into the town and boost the local economy.
Key highlights include:
London Fenchurch Street can be reached by train in under 40 minutes. Lakeside Shopping Centre is just under 3 miles away.
Easy access to the M25 and A13 with its direct route to central London. Convenient access to London City Airport for flights to various European destinations.
Reasonable house prices, including modern flats overlooking the Thames estuary. Some highly regarded local schools with stellar reputations for GCSE and A Level results.
Very good leisure opportunities in the town including water sports and motorsports centres.
Considering its location is so close to London, property prices are far more affordable.
Currently the average property price for Grays is £310,320, as of April 2019 and values have creeped up slightly by 0.75% over the past three months.
In terms of different property styles, flats in Grays sold for an average of £192,000 and terraced houses for £276,000. Four-bedroom detached houses start from around £420,000.

For those searching for a brand-new home, there are also two new developments under construction currently:
Relocating London families and residents of congested Essex towns look favourably upon Grays not only for its leafy surrounds and clean, river air but also it’s choice of schools.
