Witham is in England.
Witham is on the A12 about 1 hours drive north/east of London. Witham is also served by the Great Eastern main line connecting London Liverpool Street to Norwich. Witham is located roughly in the centre of Essex with Chelmsford around 10 miles South, Colchester 10 miles North, Braintree 8 miles West and Maldon 8 miles east.
Witham is a small town that'd take no more than 1.5 hours to walk end to end. Most places are easily accessible by foot with a picturesque River Walk running bisecting the town from the Powers Hall/Rickstones border through to Maldon Road.
Bus Services are provided by three minibuses circling around the various estates.
Taxi services are also common and widely available
Witham has a fairly small town center and the shops are rather basic and mainly consist of supermarkets, charity shops and bookmakers (betting shops). However the town center architecture is really nice to look at.
Although Witham is not a particularly dangerous town, it is fairly gritty and largely working class. Tourists especially should take care if they decide to venture outside the town centre. Walking around at night is not advised, especially The Courts housing estate on Rickstones road area which can be quite dangerous at night but it is too far from the town centre and railway station so tourists are unlikely to find themselves there. Other housing estates like Hatfield Road area, Church Street, Howbridge Road and Humber Road are not as bad as The Courts but also best avoided at night.
