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

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.

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!

Awesome pub with a beer garden, a great vibe, great people and a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. It's also very close to Leytonstone Underground Station.

This music venue hosts live music nights on two levels. Love the summer with the doors open, view of the church and gorgeous live jazz. Also they do rock and blues, and open mic nights. But for me, to have a cracking jazz venue minutes from my front door is the best.

Excellent Mediterranean Restaurant right near Leytonstone tube station in Bushwood Area. Atmos and cuisine every bit as fine as Upper Street at much better prices. Top haunt.

Love the coconut-infused southern Indian flavours. Friendliest service and the mixed grills and Dosas are to die for.

Their weekly wine tasting evenings - really relaxed, social events and so informative. Great craft beers too.

"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."
