The local area guide to living in Walthomstow

Situated in North East London, Walthamstow can be found in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. It is perhaps best well known for its artistic scene as well as the Walthamstow street market which is reported to be Europe's longest market at over a mile long.

Information about the local residents

With an estimated population around 111,000 in the 2011 census, Walthamstow's population has become increasingly more diverse since the previous 2001 census. The number of residents identifying as White-British have dropped by approximately 13,000 in this time, whilst non-British residents have increased by approximately 11,000 in that time. This diversity is crucial to the area, and provides the rich mix of cultures and people which makes Walthamstow so interesting and unique.

The house prices, whilst moderately higher than the UK average, have - on average - an asking price of almost £200,000 less than the average London property. For this reason, the area is highly attractive to those wishing to make their career in the country's capital, and reportedly attracts a lot of younger residents in more recent years.

Nearby schools

In total, there are over 50 schools scattered around Walthamstow; a fairly even blend of primary and secondary schools on offer. The majority of these achieved a 'good' or above in their Ofsted reports, with only a select few receiving a 'satisfactory' or below.

Two good examples of schools in the heart of Walthamstow are The Winns Primary School and Forest School; both of which have received high reviews from parents whose children attend the establishment.

The majority of schools are co-educational, however there are a few single-sex schools such as Walthamstow School for Girls, which has received both 'good' and 'outstanding' Ofsted reports in recent years.

Getting around

The ideal location in London means that Walthamstow has easy access in and around the city, making it perfect for those who are required to commute to central London for work each day. A tube train from Walthamstow to the more centrally located London Victoria takes approximately 35 minutes. Located in Zone 3, the main station Walthamstow Central Station is served by both the Victoria underground line and the Chingford Overground line. There is also another station; Walthamstow Queen's Road railway station which is served only by the Overground service and provides regular trains to and between Blackhorse Road and Leyton Midland Station.

For those who'd rather remain on the road, the London bus service - whilst admittedly not the most reliable owing to the fairly congested routes in and around central London - are regular and provide a wide coverage of transport. For those with their own car, the M11 is just a short drive away, which links to the rest of the UK.

The nearest airport is Heathrow which is just over an hour away from Walthamstow, and has flights travelling all over the world.

Local shops

Let's face it, when you live in London, there's never going to be a shortage of outings or things to do; with transport around the city so easy, there's always something going on which will appeal to all audiences. For those wanting a big shopping trip, Walthamstow is ideally situated for trips into the heart of London, wherein larger shopping centres and malls can be located, such as Stratford's Westfield which is just a few trains away. However, Walthamstow itself isn't without its shopping merits, and boasts a neat blend of independent and chain shops on its high street.

Perhaps the biggest gem of the town is its market which is over a mile long, and is reported to be Europe's longest street market, occupying all but the last 100m of Walthamstow's vast high street.
