Aveley is a place in the Thurrock unitary authority in the East of England. It is a suburban development located 16.3 miles (26.2 km) east of Charing Cross in London and within the eastern bounds of the M25 motorway.

After the Second World War the population grew rapidly as the area absorbed some of the London overspill. According to Thurrock Council in 2001 the ward of Aveley and Uplands had a population of 8,381 people.

It is roughly bounded to the north and west by the London Borough of Havering, to the south by the A13 road and to the east by the M25 motorway.

Aveley is the home of football (soccer) club Aveley F.C., who play at the Mill Field. It is also where proposed New Grays Athletic Stadium is to be built.

Belhus golf course is located in Aveley near the site of the former Belhus Mansion. Much of the remaining land from Belhus forms the Belhus Woods Country Park.
