Gidea Park is a neighbourhood in the east of Romford in the London Borough of Havering, south-east England.
Predominantly affluent and residential, it was historically within the county of Essex and saw significant expansion in the early 20th century with exhibitions of housing and town planning (the first being known as Romford Garden Suburb) and the construction of a railway station on the main line out from Liverpool Street in the City of London.
