Forest Gate is a residential district in east London, England, in the London Borough of Newham.
The area has never been an administrative unit and so has never had any formal boundaries, but it is often seen as conterminous with the E7 (Forest Gate) postal area and so it lies on both sides of the boundary between West and East Ham.
The area lies roughly 7 miles (11 km) northeast of Charing Cross and is bordered by Manor Park to the east and Stratford town centre to the west.
Forest Gate is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) east of Westfield Stratford City and the 2012 Olympic Park. The northern half of the busy Green Street runs through it and from 2019, Forest Gate railway station will be served by Crossrail.
Forest Gate railway station has services to London Liverpool Street via Stratford. It is in Travelcard Zone 3 on the Great Eastern Main Line, and was first opened in 1840, a year after the line was built, but closed in 1843, before re-opening after pressure from local residents on 31 May 1846. Other stations in the area include Wanstead Park railway station, which is on the Gospel Oak to Barking line in Zone 3. Forest Gate will be linked by the Elizabeth line to Central and West London in 2019. This will significantly improve rail services in the area.
Forest Gate has various associations with music and acting: it was for many years the home of the Tonic Sol-fa College of John Curwen, which taught large numbers of people to play music without learning conventional notation. In December 1966 Jimi Hendrix wrote Purple Haze in the Upper Cut Club, owned by Douglas Bayle and George and Billy Walker, it had been opened by The Who, and had The Small Faces as the house band, for a while. It later became the Ace of Clubs in Woodgrange Road.
