What locals say about Enfield

  1. London's greenest borough - loads of parks and playing fields. Great transport links are only set to get better when TfL takes over the Enfield town line into Liverpool street. Gentleman's row is really pretty area with beautiful old houses and a meandering river. Many affordable Victorian and 1930s houses in the borough. The market square has great potential to improve and the town could do with some independent coffee shops serving speciality coffee. A diverse community, great Turkish restaurant in the town. Saathi is the best Indian and fishandchips@londonroad is award winning

  2. Lots of green space and also is much quieter then the city life. The only downside the A406 can be close.

  3. Many things: peace and quiet, green space, affordable period property, good shops and a proper town centre, fast train links to central London!

  4. Enfield Chase is the best kept secret in London. Village feel, affordable period property, good schools, lots of green space, a proper town centre, and only 25 mins to central London by train.
