Area Guides

Even neighbouring parts of London have a very different feel. We’ll give you the lowdown on the ins, outs and hidden secrets of the areas we serve.

Chingford

Cosy, contained, and with a real East End community feel, Chingford is still just a short train ride from central London. It’s easy to see why this characterful part of the capital is so popular with young families, with great facilities and generous parkland on the doorstep and the 6,000-acre Epping Forest nearby.

Stratford

A decade on from the London Olympics, Stratford has become home to one of the world’s largest cultural districts, East Bank. Universities UCL and UAL’s London College of Fashion are set to join the BBC, Sadler’s Wells and the soon-to-open V&A. Transport-wise, it’s incredibly well connected, and the shopping is to die for.

Manor Park

Something of an artsy, creative heartland, Manor Park is still a relatively undiscovered and affordable corner of London. There are streets of Victorian and Edwardian property, some of them overlooking the wide-open spaces of Wanstead Flats. You’ll discover a mix of refurbished and doer-uppers, as well as double bayed and compact terraces.

Hackney

Hackney is the pulsating heart of London’s creative community. Close to the City geographically (if not culturally) there’s always something going on. It’s fast-paced, lively and constantly reinventing itself. Despite its trendy urban credentials, there’s plenty of green space nearby including Victoria Park and London Fields.

Forest Gate

Forest Gate was once a bastion of the Sixties music scene and still drips with cultural cool. Blessed with a plethora of superb pubs and bars, there’s also plenty of quality Victorian period property available in the area. Transport links were already respectable, but with Crossrail, it will take just 17 minutes to get to Tottenham Court Road.

Woodford Green

Just 20 minutes from Liverpool Street, you’d swear you were in a small country town wandering through Woodford Green. It’s a scenic haven of serenity, complete with cricket green and old-timey pubs. With high-rated Ofsted schools and plenty of open space, it’s the perfect spot for young families … and couples with a glint in their eyes.

Leytonstone

Leytonstone is home to a happy, inclusive community. With all kinds of eateries, bars, breweries and coffee shops spilling off from the bustling High Road, it has its own distinctive feel and personality.

Leyton

Leyton has been on the up since the 2012 Olympics and is constantly evolving. With the Central Line connecting it to the City to the west and leafy Essex to the east, the area promises the best of both worlds.

Walthamstow

Walthamstow is where it all started for us, so clearly, we love it. Built from proper East End roots, the expanding community has transformed the area into a buzzy, creative hub and a destination in its own right.

South Woodford

South Woodford feels surprisingly rural and residential, but you can still be in Oxford Circus in less than half an hour. It’s well stocked with restaurants and cafés and even has its own cinema.

Highams Park

Highams Park is something of a hidden gem. Slightly tucked away, the chichi coffee shops and picturesque woodland have a slightly exclusive feel, but the community is nicely grounded and down to earth.

Wanstead

Wanstead has a charming, villagely feel and an abundance of green space. It’s often likened to Twickenham or Richmond, but it has plenty of merits of its own, particularly its welcoming pubs and restaurants.
