Brentwood is located in Essex county in England. There is also another Brentwood in the US, which is a district in the Westside of the city of Los Angeles, California.
Brentwood is a small affluent town in Essex.
In my opinion, although the town itself is not famous for tourism, there are other places nearby, which are. Remember that England is a small country as compared to the US so when I say nearby, it typically means fast train travel and not car drives.
Brentwood was HQ for Sir Alan Sugar's company earlier, which now appearantly is the Premier Inn hotel. For those who do not know Sir Sugar, he is a self made millionnaire businessman and who is also a famous TV personality on UK version of 'The Apprentice'.
Brentwood is home to British Telecom's office and also Ford motor company.
