The well renowned town of Shenfield is a major part of the Brentwood Borough. Apart from some small industrial areas and a modest but busy shopping area with excellent restaurants and cafes, Shenfield serves predominantly as a dormitory town for commuters to London. It takes around 20 minutes to reach London Liverpool Street, with efficient connections to surrounding towns such as Chelmsford and Basildon. This is further facilitated by easy access to the A12 and M25 road networks being 5 and 10 minutes driving distance of the town respectively. Over the past 10 years, Shenfield high road has been rejuvenated with trendy bars, restaurants and pubs.
