This is Enfield
Enfield is the northernmost borough in London, bordering the M25 and Hertfordshire. Only 13 miles from central London and with excellent transport links, Enfield is ideal for commuters who can get to the city from numerous stations in less than 30 minutes.
Indeed Enfield is somewhat of a well-kept secret as it is also one of the greenest boroughs in London with 105 parks and open spaces, and many fields and waterways. Little wonder that visitors from surrounding areas often make a day trip to Enfield.
Another attraction for visitors is Forty Hall, a fine historic building dating back to 1632. The Hall has many original architectural features, a walled garden, lakes, lawns and meadows, all beautifully maintained, it hosts several exhibitions and events throughout the year. Forty Hall is a great day out for the family.
In fact the borough is steeped in history. The Town Market situated in Market Square can be traced back over 700 years to 1303. It is now run by The Old Enfield Charitable Trust and brings both vibrancy and a sense of community to the area.
More recently Enfield became home to the first ever ATM when it was installed in Barclays Bank in 1967.
The borough has seen major redevelopment in recent years, including the extension of the Palace Gardens Shopping Centre in Enfield Town in 2007. The centre has introduced a number of large, national stores which complement the existing independently run shops. This mix, together with an abundance of restaurants, bars and coffee shops, makes Enfield Town Centre an area where you can while away many hours.
The sense of community is strong in Enfield, evident in regular 'Cash Mobs' to support local businesses and an abundance of sports clubs and societies. Belvoir! Enfield are very excited about our links with Enfield Town Football Club, whose home is in this beautiful art deco building in Donkey Lane.
