Why move to South Chingford?
If you want the best of both worlds – open spaces and easy access to the City, then South Chingford is a great choice. Still one of London’s best kept secrets, this North-East London suburb, sandwiched between up-and-coming Walthamstow, and the more affluent North Chingford, has huge potential for home buyers and investors.
South Chingford has an intimate village feel, with a cohesive community, as evidenced by the tireless activities of the ‘Love South Chingford’ campaign.

A short history
In the 11th Century, Chingford was recorded in the Domesday Book as a small settlement. It wasn’t until the railway came in 1873 that rapid expansion really began. Even so, this was chiefly confined to North Chingford, while the South remained a small agricultural community until the 1920's.
From the 1930's, the nearby dog track at Walthamstow brought crowds to the area, and was dubbed “The Victoria Line’s Las Vegas”. The stadium was opened by aviator Amy Johnson, and was used in 1945 by Winston Churchill to address the people during his election campaign. The stadium fell into disrepair and was finally closed in 2008, but the iconic art deco neon façade has recently been restored to its former glory, with 300 new homes on the site.
Property wise, Chingford is one of the few locations in close proximity to London that hasn’t seen house prices rise extraordinarily over the last couple of years. Perfect for families, or young professionals, there is a good choice, with everything from flats to Edwardian terraces.

Shopping, eating and drinking
South Chingford doesn’t contain a classic high street with typical chain stores. Instead, there is a selection of independent grocery stores, butchers, cafes, restaurants and florists catering to the needs of the locals. If you are in need a spot of more serious retail therapy, there are plenty of large malls within a short train ride or drive.
The locals organise regular markets, including a recent France at Home market, selling top quality products from across the Channel, including local cheeses, breads and patisserie items - even Provençal soaps!
For younger residents, the iconic Warehouse nightclub is just a fifteen minute drive or taxi ride away. With its stripped back charm and top-of-the-range sound system, there is no better place to spend a Friday or Saturday night.
Things to do
Public open spaces, including the forest and parks, cover around a quarter of the land in the borough, so South Chingford is perfect for fans of walking or cycling. A range of sports are available at the recently refurbished Waltham Forest Leisure Centre.
Perhaps the best known local landmark is the Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge in the heart of Epping Forest. Inside you can explore the interactive exhibitions on Tudor life. Its quaint Butlers Retreat Cafe is a real treat, providing sublime views.
The community-run South Chingford Library is a friendly spot to borrow a book, or access Wifi, with services and activities for families and adults.
