Shops in Brentwood high street are small in number but include a variety of shops including charity shops, usual food chains and other places to eat. Besides that, it is also home to Sugar Hut nightclub.
High street Brentwood is about 5 mins walk from the station up the hill. Here are some photos of shops on high street.
The first one below is what it is tot the high street. You can walk from one end to the other in 5 mins. Most of the shops open around and close around pm.
There are no huge shopping malls or huge buildings with shops awaiting you. I took below picture on a Sunday evening when not a single soul was around at 7 pm.
