Where do E17 locals go?

Walthamstow Market

The perfect place to find fresh fruit and veg alongside a variety of shops and small mediterranean restaurants.

Turtle Bay

Great place for drinks and Caribbean food, where the customer service is impeccable and the decor inside is really nice.

The Italian Delicatessen of Walthamstow

The deli counter stocks a superb range of Italian cheeses, cured meats and crudités to enjoy as antipasti or ingredients. Freshly-baked breads include focaccia. Superb quality wines and spirits. The warm welcome and customer service is what makes this delicatessen authentic. A great shop in Walthamstow.

Empire Cinemas

The largest independently owned cinema in the UK, it's a good place to hang out with your friends and enjoy a movie.

Zaiqa

Fresh Indian cuisine served as a buffet. A restaurant with both style and substance.

Wildcard Brewery Tap Bar

A beautifully simple place with beers brewed on site. A lovely laid back feel with the occasional live band playing!

The Mall

Plenty of well known high street stores and food outlets under one roof.

God's Own Junkyard

Enough to brighten any overcast day... Head over to this warehouse for a sensory overload. A crazy feast of colours with store signs and lights, it's a truly hipster place!

The Village

Recently reopened, this pub is a great place to enjoy a drink sitting on a lovely, comfy sofa in the garden.

William Morris Gallery

As well as showcasing Morris's works, you can also learn about the wider art world through exhibitions and workshops.

Queen's Arms

A pub in Walthamstow Village that's always vibrant and buzzing; a great place to meet friends for Sunday lunch.

The Village Bakery

Great for al fresco breakfasts and lunch in the heart of the village and they do a mean BBQ Pork Bap Special!

Eat17

This restaurant in a converted ballroom has a varied menu of hearty British meals with a foodie twist.

Aura Rosa

Serving afternoon tea on a Sunday at Mother's Ruin Gin Palace, I recommend the Guinness cake!

Mother's Ruin Gin Palace

A lovely range of gin cocktails made with any gin you can possibly think of!

"It's diverse and vibrant. A great place to live. Walthamstow is the place for all people, for families and professionals wishing to be part of a close community."

"Walthamstow Village is definitely one of the best urban villages in London. Here, you can find fantastic schools, pubs and restaurants, an abundance of groups for babies and children and a real sense of community. Just outside the village, we now have The Scene development which has brought a cinema back to the area along with a number of great chain restaurants."

"Walthamstow is a friendly, diverse place with everything a young family needs - good parks, playgrounds, loads of groups and activities - as well as independent coffee shops and businesses. It has a genuine community spirit, and is an easy place to call home. Check out the homegrown art trail, or the annual Garden Party in Lloyd Park."

"Lloyds Park is definately the best part of Walthamstow. A stones throw from Lloyds Park and the award-winning William Morris Museum. It's a great place to visit with family or friends. The play area is suitable for all ages and the new cafe is wonderful. Only a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the market. Lots of lovely cafes and shops for all ages. The new cinema and food outlets have made Walthamstow even mo... more

"I moved to Walthamstow Village from Islington over 15 years ago and have never looked back. It's hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the main town centre - you wouldn't even know it was there. I can honestly say it has everything, a great community spirit, wonderful bars, restaurants and pubs, plus some lovely period properties - including quaint cottages. It's a unique place to live because you are only a st... more
