About the location

From Homes and garden..For interesting local independent shops, cafés and restaurants, visit Orford Road where there is a toy shop, butcher and flower shop. Also on the street there is Penny Fielding, an interiors shop and art gallery. Neighborhood restaurants include Eat17, for modern European food, Orford Saloon, for tapas, and Trattoria Ruga, for Italian food. The Nag’s Head and the Queen’s Arms are the local pubs.

Open spaces: Walthamstow is sandwiched between the River Lea and Epping Forest, giving access to miles and miles of walking and cycling.

Leisure and the arts: There are council-owned swimming pools at the Waltham Forest Pool in Chingford Road and the Leyton Leisure Lagoon in Leighton High Road. Swimming is also available at private clubs Bannatyne’s in Morrison Avenue and Bancroft’s School in nearby Woodford Green. The Vestry House Museum is a local museum with a charming garden in the village; and in Forest Road, the William Morris Gallery, in the house where he once lived, is a museum of national importance. There is no cinema in Walthamstow, but McGuffin, the local film society, is fighting to get the listed Walthamstow Granada reopened.

Nearby Epping Forest offers miles of walking and cycling. The area has good Tube and railway connections to central London. Walthamstow Central and Blackhorse Lane are on the Victoria line and are 22 minutes and 20 minutes respectively from Oxford Circus. Highams Park, Wood Street, Walthamstow Central and St James Street are on the overground to Liverpool Street. The journey from Walthamstow Central takes 18 minutes.
