The forest of culture

Originally formed in 1965 from the Boroughs of Chingford, Leyton and Walthamstow, the London Borough of Waltham Forest offers two distinct parts separated by the North Circular Road. The areas are polar opposites; the south is comprised of high-rise apartment blocks with busy inner-city living whilst the north offers stately homes, extensive parks, gardens and a quieter dose of life.

The restaurants and bars in Waltham Forest are overflowing with diversity and culture. If you are a fan of Scandinavian culture or just like a good cafe, Bygga Bo offers excellent refreshments that are made in house with local ingredients. If you are after something a bit more on the Portuguese side, The Windmill restaurant offers a tapas style menu and full main courses. The excellent value lunch deals are also worth checking out. For cuisine from a bit closer to home, the East London Sausage Company’s products can be found all over the capital.

In addition to its culinary features, Waltham Forest is home to a number of amazing sites and things to keep you busy. Epping Forrest offers the ideal weekend spot for families as it is one of the best ecological sites in the UK with a vast amount of wildlife. This site is also known as the filming location of one of the most iconic scenes from one of the greatest films of all time, the Black Knight scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

For all of you avid shoppers, the Wood Street indoor market offers over 25 stores selling clothes, jewellery and antiques. The Mall not only offers shopping opportunities but also hosts various events throughout the year.
