The local area guide to living in Enfield

Enfield is a north London borough located on the periphery of the capital, neighbouring Barnet, Haringey, Waltham Forest, and Hertfordshire. Enfield Town was originally a county of Middlesex, but eventually became a part of London in 1965. The area has a great history, as artefacts found at the beginning of the 20th century proved that Roman settlements existed in and around Enfield, particularly in Edmonton and Bush Hill Park.

The market right outside St Andrew's Church takes place three times a week, and has done so since 1303. Visitors can find all types of homemade and specialist goods here, and the Market House is a brilliant place to be entertained by buskers and performers. The Royal Small Arms Factory can be found at Enfield Lock on the River Lea, and was built after the Napoleonic wars to produce British military rifles, muskets and swords. It has since been closed, but the buildings have been redeveloped into residential homes.

Enfield is a highly vibrant and popular place to live for families, especially those who are looking for cheaper property prices than what can be found in Central London. Countryside lovers will enjoy the vast array of parks, gardens and fields in Enfield. Myddelton Gardens, Forty Hall, and Capel Manor College are among the beautiful gardens that can be found in this area.
