"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.

  1. About Enfield

    Enfield Town, also known as Enfield, is the historic town centre of Enfield, in the London Borough of Enfield. It is 10.1 miles (16.3 km) north-northeast of Charing Cross. Historically, Enfield was a collection of small communities spread around the royal hunting grounds of Enfield Chase. At the time of the Domesday Book the area was spelt 'Enefelde'. The village green later became the historic marketplace between the church and where the fountain now stands. A market is still operated in this area. Enfield Town has excellent bus links.
