Vyki

"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."

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.
