A word from our Leyton area expert…

“Leyton is a well-hidden gem that people haven’t yet fully explored. Francis Road is one of area’s most celebrated spots and it never disappoints. It’s buzzing with cafés, delis, shops and restaurants — the perfect afternoon or weekend destination. 

The Olympic Park is just around the corner, great for all the amazing concerts, sporting events and festivals that are held there all year round.

Getting into central London couldnt be any easier, with Leyton Midland overground station as well as the Central underground line both right on the doorstep.

And did I mention that Jubilee Park, with its café, outdoor gym and pirate-themed playground, is perfect for a relaxing Sunday walk?”

Plenty of period property
