2019 saw Walthamstow appointed the official London borough of culture; it is a place where independent businesses are flocking to pop-up and populate.

You will find bakeries, breweries, cafes, cheese makers, custom-work factories, and drapers here, just to give you a flavour of the mix.

Walthamstow is developing quickly into one of the coolest areas of London, yet still manages to keep its village feel especially in the village itself; a delightful conservation area and former winner of Time Out’s “best London village” award.

Walthamstow has fantastic green spaces on the door-step and places of interest that are equal to those anywhere else in London.

The Walthamstow Wetlands is a nature reserve that includes Coppermill Fields and Leyton Marsh, which are all part of this Green Flag award-winning site and Epping Forest is on the doorstep. Lloyds Park is a stone’s throw from the award-winning William Morris Museum, which is a short distance from Walthamstow Market, which is the longest outdoor market in Europe, where there is nothing you cannot buy. Walthamstow even has a lighthouse, 35 miles from the sea!

There is a choice of 3 train services in the area. Blackhorse Road Station is the nearest to Uplands, which has both Underground Victoria Line and Overground to Gospel Oak and Barking. Walthamstow Central has Overground into Liverpool Street for the City of London, and the Underground on the Victoria line, with a straight run in to London’s West End and beyond to Brixton. Queens Road Overground runs between Gospel Oak and Barking.
