Located approximately 30 miles (50 km) east of London, it falls within the District of Basildon along with the original town of Basildon, Billericay, Laindon and Pitsea.It has become a commuter town, serving the City of London through its direct connection to Liverpool Street station through the Southend Victoria line, on which a train to London takes approximately 40 minutes. The town can also be easily reached via the road network by the A127 between London and Southend-on-Sea or by the A130 from Chelmsford.Wickford is a fairly small town with a main high street including a range of shops. A swimming pool, a library, an open-air market and a community centre are also within the vicinity of the town centre.Including this, Wickford also incorporates a small estate called Shotgate, home to many residents.
