Manor Park — Stow Brothers

Welcome to 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.

Manor Park — Stow Brothers

Although it might sound like a Downton Abbey spin-off, in reality Manor Park is a dynamic hotspot for East London creatives, attracted by its independent scene, affordable prices and abundance of green space.

At its heart is the striking Grade II-listed Old Manor Park Library, which was built by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1904 and recently transformed into studio spaces for artists and the local community. This thoughtful old-meets-news fusion is reflective of the area as a whole, with the lively centre giving way to charming property, historic buildings and laid-back parks. 

The biggest development of recent years has been the Crossrail, with the Elizabeth line making a stop at Manor Park. But even before that juggernaut arrived in town, transport links have been excellent – Manor Park is only a short walk to three London Underground lines, meaning locals and visitors can nip into Central London in just 30 mins.

A word from our Manor Park area expert…

Flanked by the picturesque Wanstead Flats to the north, Manor Park is an unpolished East London gem with great transport links — whether you’re using the Elizabeth Line or driving.

This is an area that’s just rammed with history and cultural interest. Arnold Schwarzenegger lived here in his bodybuilding prime, while in the 60s, many of the biggest names in music gigged locally, including Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, The Who and Eric Clapton.

The Golden Fleece is the perfect local pub, with superb views over the Flats and a great beer garden. While the 150-year-old, 200-acre City of London Cemetery is a fascinating spot, with beautiful formal gardens and tree-lined avenues.

Transport links

It’s already only 13 minutes from Manor Park to Liverpool Street on the Overground, but when Crossrail launches it will be possible to travel to the West End in just 20 mins. East Ham on the District line and Hammersmith & City line is the nearest London Underground station.

Open green spaces

Manor Park isn’t just a name, it’s also an actual green space situated within Wanstead Flats at the southernmost tip of Epping Forest. Interesting fact; it’s rumoured to be the inspiration behind the Small Faces’ hit Itchycoo Park – the band’s frontman and guitarist Steve Marriot grew up locally.

Plenty of period property

Manor Park is proud of its streets of Victorian and Edwardian property, some of which overlook the Wanstead Flats. You should find a mix of refurbished and doer-uppers, as well as double bayed and compact terraces, making the area suitable for a range of budgets.
