Woodford is a charming sanctuary of leafy green space which is just a short commute to the centre of London. Nestled in the London borough of Redbridge, Woodford is a huge hit with families thanks to its close proximity to Epping Forest and its abundance of excellent schools on offer. The area provides just enough liveliness to keep a close-knit village vibe, it’s no wonder this proves to be a highly sought after area to reside in.
Boasting a lively food and drink scene, Woodford has a huge variety of world cuisines at your fingertips such as Italian, Turkish and Indian. With leafy tree-lined streets all encompassing a mix of period properties, Woodford has been the home to many famous names including suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst and former Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The district also has its own version of ‘Broadway’ which is cascaded with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
The area of Woodford was first recorded all the way back in 1062 and was never a single village, rather a collection of hamlets. It wasn’t until the 1700 onwards did Woodford become the home of affluent business owners in London which eventually led to the area being called the ‘geographical and social high point of East London’.
