What locals say about EN2

  1. I love living in North Enfield because it's easy to get back into Central London or pop onto the M25 to practically anywhere yet we benefit from the calm relaxed openness of suburbia and are only minutes away from the clean country life with lovely walks in woodland with access near farm land and on the London Loop to some beautiful landscapes with interesting places to visit such as Forty Hall and the Great Wood a short drive away.

  2. Chase Side is the best part of Enfield to live in: good transport links, reasonably priced property, good schools

Child-friendly activities near EN2

Enfield Garden Centre Soft Play Area

Enfield Garden Centre
Enfield Garden Centre lies in Crews Hill, North London, in an area renowned for its rich horticultural heritage. Whilst plants and gardening remain at the heart of the business, Enfield also offers customers a wonderful day out, with a newly opened garden restaurant, a great gift shop, a fish shop and a furniture shop, as well as a soft play area for the kids, which is open any time the restaurant is open. There may be the odd occasion where a play area has been booked for a child's party, so it's always best to check with the centre first to avoid disappointment. Website
