If you find yourself in Brentwood it is important to know how to get out. The rail service into London is good with trains every 10 minutes. It takes about 40 minutes to get to Liverpool Street and around 30 minutes to Stratford where you can connect with the Central Line.
The commuters get charged a fortune for travelling during rush hour but if you travel after 9:30am it is quite reasonable. A travelcard costing £8.40 will get you into London and back again and allow you to use the tube and buses all day while in London.

Forget the land of the living while in Brentwood. You'll have much more fun with the dead.
There are a couple of cemeteries where I like to spend time. One is in Woodman Road, the other in Lorne Road, both near to where I live. Morbid, I hear you say? Well, maybe, but I have my reasons. Unlike the rest of the the town, that never stays still, there seems to be a degree of calm and continuity within the cemeteries. I find them good places to reflect on my life, especially while looking around and seeing how young some of the people were when they died. Brentwood used to have an army barracks and there are many graves of soldiers from WW1 that were only aged around 20 when they were killed in action.
For nature lovers, the cemeteries are good places too. Lots of wild flowers and native birds abound. Lorne Road cemetery has a population of urban foxes that can be seen here when they are not out and about foraging in the rubbish bins of Brentwood.

Favorite thing: Being a major cultural and tourist centre, Brentwood has its very own Tourist Information Centre.
Inside you will find helpful staff as well as bus timetables for the No. 57 to Basildon and information regarding dustbin collection.
It occupies a prime location in the centre of High Street.
