  • The buses run every hour not much to do if you have children. Very quiet place, shops in town are expensive lots of betting shops, and public houses.

  • The area is very safe but the shopping centre is a let down.

  • I didn't know either and went in blind. I stupidly asked the estate agent I was buying from, who of course said it was AMAZING! But two years later I'm trying to sell to get out of Witham, I think it's fair to say it's not for everyone, if you have family here and worked here I could see it being alright as people tend to stick to who they know in groups but there are a lot of areas to avoid, crime isn't high to be fair, it's just not the highly sort after, great to start a family in 'village' that was sold to me but this is just my view. A lot of people I've met here really like it and you do get a hell of a lot more for your money!

  • Witham is a relatively safe area which appeals more to families than singles. The main shopping street needs a makeover although does have a few nice traditional shops, a Tesco off the main street and a Morrisons superstore near the station. The best reason for moving to Witham is that you get a shedload more property for your money, and that was the deciding factor when I moved there last year. There's easy access to Chelmsford and Colchester for shopping too.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
