A delightful setting on the banks of the River Crouch makes Shangri-La Park an ideal place for retirement (50+), especially if you have a love of sailing and fishing. There are four yacht clubs within a mile of the Park and for those who prefer golf, a first class course within easy reach. Buses stop nearby going to Southend, Chelmsford and Basildon, all excellent shopping and entertainment centres. Southend has seven glorious miles of seafront with water sports, Sea Life Adventure Centre and the longest pleasure pier in the world with a railway. The nearest railway station is at Rayleigh four miles away with trains to London Liverpool Street taking about forty minutes. Hullbridge has good shopping facilities including a Library, Post Office and Doctors Surgery. Close by is the antiques village of Battlebridge and the rural Essex countryside. At Leigh-on-Sea's Heritage Centre you can hear about the town's links with the Mayflower and the six little ships that helped the evacuation of the Dunkirk beaches. Pets are considered at Shangri-La Park (one dog or one cat).
