Leytonstone Area Guide
Leytonstone is a suburban area in East London, situated between Wanstead and Leyton. The area is part of the London borough of Waltham Forest. This part of East London is booming, and things look set to continue apace as more and more people ditch Central London and head out to Zones 3 and 4. E11 have some fantastic pubs and restaurants, which make Leytonstone fantastically social places to live. Epping Forest and Wanstead Flats are on your doorstep and the River Lee and Victoria Park are only a short distance away, so finding a green space to while away the hours in really isn’t a problem. Church Path near Leytonstone Stations is quite stylish with bookshops, pubs and cafes. Hollow Ponds, Wanstead Park and Epping Forest are all nearby and offer lovely wide-open spaces. Families and first-time buyers are attracted here as they can get more for their money here than they can in close by Hackney.
