Situated in on the edge of east London, the borough of Havering gets it's name from The Royal Liberty of Havering, granted a charter by Edward IV in 1465. In an area of 43 square miles and over 242,000 residents, more than half of the borough is park- or green-belt land, some of which shows evidence of early Roman settlements. The major Roman staging post of Durolitum was at the site of what is modern-day Romford (the borough's commercial centre), and from that time to the present the area's economy has been closely tied to the success of transport links in and out of London.

Havering is surrounded by the districts of Bexley, Redbridge and Barking as well as bordering Thurrock, Essex and the M25 to the east and the Thames to the south. The borough is twinned with towns in France and Germany.
