Roads – The main arterial roads from London are the A13 and A127, both heading through the south of the county, and the A12 that passes north-east through central Essex. The M25 London Orbital and M11, from London to Cambridge, provide motorway links in and out of the county.

Railway – The county’s rail services head into the London termini of Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street, both in the heart of London’s financial district.

Shenfield, in south-central Essex, is the designated eastern end of the Crossrail project traversing London to Heathrow and Maidenhead.

Tube – London’s underground network stretches into the western part of Essex on the Central Line, as far as Epping.

Buses – There is a network of local and express bus services in and around the county.

Ferry – Services from Harwich run to the Hook of Holland (Netherlands) and Esbjerg (Denmark).

Airport – Stansted International Airport, in the northwest of Essex, is London’s third largest, connecting to a large number of domestic and short-haul destinations. The airport is close to the M11 and has regular rail connections to London, Cambridge and the Midlands.
