Not somewhere accessible to every local, but worth a mention all the same. The pool here is set within a converted church and is one of the most relaxing places to come and reflect upon your day...or just reflect on life.

Great Middle Eastern-style food, stunning venue and a fantastic atmosphere. Will certainly be going back! You can spend your whole evening here, as there's a cocktail bar with live music for pre or post-dinner drinks.

Great locally produced food. Look out for TTaste street food serving freshly made gyoza (Chinese dumplings) served with TTaste homemade chilli oil.

A small and friendly wine shop. They even sell wine from a barrel if you bring your own bottle to fill up.

I always visit this independent beauty therapy salon before any special event or just for a bit of me time. They offer a range of different treatments and the staff are always really friendly.

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.

One of Loughton's late night spots, it's open from Thursday to Sunday and attracts a glamorous Essex crowd.

Great for a family meal or a get together with friends. Traditional Indian curries and sides, all for a reasonable price.

The best sushi and burgers around and all under one roof - choose between Japanese and Italian cuisine, or why not have both!

Great cosy atmosphere, superb coffee and cocktails, second hand books and records!

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.

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!

"Vinegar Alley behind Saint Mary's Church, Walthamstow is so called because local people used vinegar to sanitise the plague pits that were dug around here."
