Clarendon’s top tips for Walthamstow
The William Morris gallery is non-negotiable, and showcases the world’s largest collection of his works, all on display in his childhood home. Walk amongst the trees in one the many green spaces within the area, or take a stroll along some of the lesser known waterways. For a slice of the 12th century, stop off at St Mary’s Church, which is still a working church today, as well as a music and recording venue.

If a more structured shopping and eating experience is sought, then a trip to nearby Stratford and the famous Westfield shopping mall is a must.

Clarendon’s verdict on living in Walthamstow
If it’s green spaces that are needed, then this part of North East London is spot on. Hackney Marshes and Victoria Park to the south, a range of wetlands to the west, Epping Forest to the north and a smattering of smaller parks to the east, have foliage of all types, covered. If it’s city working that’s on the cards, then the entire area is superbly served by a multitude of transport options, including the Victoria line, London Overground line and other regional train services. The Central and Northern lines are not far away and the entire area is well served by buses, for those after a more scenic route. A top choice for all types of corporate travellers, looking for a home away from home.
