Home to a variety of wildlife, Wanstead Park and its pond are fantastic on a lazy Sunday; take a stroll and feed the ducks and geese.

Le Petit Corner is my absolute fave café in the Bushwood end of Leytonstone. It's Bugaboo central, but the kids can play downstairs, so upstairs is chilled and they have a secluded garden. Top toasties and apple tart and just started doing select gourmet food evenings, perfect for date night!

My absolute fave hang out is this uber cool independent bookshop, café and bar run by a lovely Danish pair in Bushwood, Leytonstone. They hold great Scratch Nights for up and coming artists. Real unique personality to it - comedy, magic, music gigs and book launches. Fab cocktails and coffee too. In the daytime, it's the perfect place to buy or just chill with a book.

Largely undiscovered probably due to the fact it is surrounded by Wanstead Park and Wanstead Flats. The setting can easily fool you into thinking that you are far away from the metropolis however this is an illusion. It’s a very convenient location just a 10 minute drive from Stratford, and 30 minutes from Wanstead Station to Oxford Street soon to be made even quicker with the arrival of Cross Rail at Manor Park station. The housing stock is predominantly Edwardian and is a designated conservation area. It’s a fantastic place to live if you enjoy running or dog walking there is also real sense of community. Aldersbrook has a very middleclass bohemian feel about it which is distinctly more London that neighboring Wanstead. However of a weekend most Aldersbrook residents can be found enjoying the local eateries and independent shops of Wanstead High Street.

Aldersbrook is the name given to an Edwardian housing estate in North-East London. It is named after the Alders Brook, a small tributary of the River Roding. It is bound by Aldersbrook Road to the south, Bush Wood to the west, Wanstead Park to the north, and the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium to the east. It is wholly in the London Borough of Redbridge, and borders Waltham Forest and Newham. One half of Aldersbrook is in the postcode district of E11, the other in E12. Aldersbrook is surrounded on all sides by open space or parkland, making it a desirable "leafy" place to live in an otherwise dense urban area of London. Northumberland Avenue and Aldersbrook Road, in particular, have housing frontage built on one side of the road, affording views of Wanstead Park and Wanstead Flats, respectively, to the properties there.
