Havering

Category: London boroughs

The London Borough of Havering is a London borough in East London and forms part of Outer London. The principal town in Havering is Romford and the other main settlements are Hornchurch and Upminster.

The London Borough of Havering was created in 1965 by the combined former area of the Municipal Borough of Romford and Hornchurch Urban District which had been transferred to Greater London from Essex by the London Government Act 1963.

The name originates from the Royal Liberty of Havering which covered broadly, but not exactly, the same area and had been abolished in 1892.
