Harlow offers a plethora of entertainment and culture, including the Playhouse Theatre, live entertainment venues, art galleries and cinemas. Known as the “;World’s First Sculpture Town”;, items from the Harlow Sculpture Collection, which includes works by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, are sited across the town.
Harlow Town and Old Harlow offer a variety of independent and chain restaurants, pubs, bars and venues, catering for all tastes. There are many establishments within walking distance of Park Lane and an even wider choice in nearby Bishop’s Stortford.
A major feature of Harlow is its green wedges, with over 1/3 of the town being parkland or open space. The Town Park is one of the largest urban parks in Britain, and occupies a large area of the central town. The busy streets of Harlow are also just a stone’s throw from the gentle calm of the River Stort with the option of lovely strolls along the towpaths through classic Hertfordshire scenery.
