Collier Row is a place in north east London in the London Borough of Havering. It is a suburban development north of Romford, located 14 miles (22.5 km) north east of Charing Cross.

The area is based on a large housing estate built during the 1930s as part of the inter-war London housing expansion, with shopping facilities around a central crossroads. Its name originates from charcoal burners who used to occupy the area.

Remains of Roman settlement have been uncovered in the area.[1]

Collier Row was formerly part of the county of Essex until the formation of Greater London in 1965.
