Since it began back in 1994, the National Lottery has distributed over £40 billion to successful ticket holders. Recent research has revealed the London boroughs of Enfield and Bromley hold the 5th and 7th positions in the top ten luckiest National Lottery towns in Britain. Enfield boasts over 1,400 lottery winners, including 42 jackpot scoops and a further 180 people banking prizes higher than £50,000. The total prize money won by Enfield residents has surpassed the £100 million mark.
The borough of Bromley has seen 17 millionaires purchase their winning tickets there and over 164 other holders win over £50,000. These results led to Lottery operator Camelot declaring the towns statistically two of the luckiest places to buy a lottery ticket and the council of Bromley received a “National Lottery Lucky Postcode Town” stamp to commemorate its fortuitous status.
When a location is declared statistically lucky, it often attracts interest from homebuyers and renters. If you are interested in property investment in the capital, Enfield and Bromley have a wide range of advantages to accompany their appealing record of lottery success. Enfield Town has undergone several major redevelopment projects including the Palace Gardens Shopping Centre. A large scale redevelopment of Edmonton Green has given the town new housing and health facilities, a leisure centre, supermarkets and many more civic features. The town also boasts King George’s Field that features the Queen Elizabeth ll athletics stadium.
Bromley is one of the major metropolitan centres identified in the London Plan. It boasts an extensive retail area and diverse range of eateries and restaurants, and is served by direct transport links to the city. The town has a number of theatres including the notable Churchill Theatre which was opened by HRH Prince of Wales. The theatre regularly plays host to national touring productions and the town itself features in the famous Monty Python Spam Sketch.
