Local information

Bounded by the North Circular Road, Lea Valley and Epping Forest, Walthamstow is the largest district in the East London borough of Waltham Forest. Recent gentrification has made the town increasingly popular with younger age groups, and this has been reflected in higher-than-average price rises.

There are several schemes planned that will provide more than 4,000 new homes, plus a redesigned town centre and the final stage of the regeneration of Walthamstow Central Station. Access to central London's West End is via the Victoria Line, and the City is easily reached by trains to Liverpool St.
