Witham Railway Station is a short walk from the Town Centre. Trains are generally every ten minutes to London (Liverpool Street Station) during the morning and evening peak times. Fast trains complete the journey in about 45 minutes.
During off-peak times and on Saturdays and Sundays there is a basic service of three trains per hour to Liverpool Street Station reducing in the evening to two per hour. Except for one or two peak hour services, all trains serve the county town of Chelmsford.
Witham Station serves trains to Clacton and Harwich on the East Coast and to Ipswich and Norwich in East Anglia, which may necessitate a change at Colchester. There is a branch line from Witham to Braintree with an hourly service.

Witham is adjacent to the A12 between Chelmsford and Colchester, with Braintree and Maldon to the North and South. Because of its proximity to London and Harwich/Felixstowe it is an ideal location for modern industrial and commercial development providing direct routes to the markets around London and giving access to Europe. With the opening of the new A120, Witham is now approximately 30 minutes from Stansted Airport.
