“verything you would expect from a London borough city”
“Run down area”
ts surprisingly quiet in terms of anti-social behaviour we have never had any problems
A dislike at the moment is the council does seem to be closing off a lot of streets making it harder for emergency services and other business to get access and therefore causing more pollution as more cars are sat in tailbacks because theres not alternative routes. The atmosphere in the local area is always up and up and people do like to help. We have cats and they love it in the area so pets is a big yes. Safety is amazing because people look out for each other in the area although you'll have small things but never major things or rarely.
Buses are always running as you've got the start of the Victoria line at the heart of E17 so you'll never have to worry about being able to catch a bus or a train we have underground and over ground, so wherever you need to go be it central London or out of town, the services can get you there!
I live essentially really close to Walthamstow central and its surprisingly quiet in terms of anti-social behaviour we have never had any problems, we have a really good relationship with our local policing team who'll always say hi if they're in the area and everyone says hi to each other on the streets and looks out for one another! Parking is not an issue theres always a spot somewhere even if it is a tiny extra walk! Bin collectors normally get through the collection before most people are up and try to clear away to not cause any traffic and we haven't had any issues with them not collecting, other than collection days changing but thats only when the council changes contracts. Theres a mix of renters and families, with families more so in the local area because of the community feel in the local area families tend to want to stay.
Shops in E17 range from thriftshops all the way to designer outlet type shops. Going down the High Street you'll find stalls full of fruit and vegetables and hearing the vendors calling out there special offers at the tops of there lungs to make sure they get the crowds of people to come to them, but then you have the little oddity vendors, need a watch theres one for that, need a RC car there's one for that, need a rolling pin we got you covered, need a new jackets we got you! But then if you lookatthe shops behind the vendors you'll the sweet shop that has been there 25+ years, the food truck (Sets Spice Hut) always with a queue and all the other little shops run by locals that survive because of locals! Venture out the high street and you'll find even more, like newish Heavenly Desserts and boy are they good! Plus a Nandos never goes a miss! But if you wanted to sit back and watch a movie why not pop in to Empire Cinema to catch the latest movies on the Big screens, plus some nachos and tango ice blast. Or go off and find yourself in any of the multiple parks where there is always something to do, kick a ball about in the cages, play cricket on the fields, let the kids loose in the play area! E17 is a great area and its been home for many years and will be for many more!
verything you would expect from a London borough city
It's a really good area lots of schools close and parks so you can keep you self busy during the day
There's a lot of transportation around you've got busses taxis trains etc some gyms parks restaurants cafes petrol stations and of course lots of roads and housess
My steet is quite mostly there's a lot of people you wouldn't even believe it sometimes there is a school close and a nursery park and gym and collage
Very good to live in whalthamstow you meet new people and make new friends lovely shops everything you would expect from a London borough city
Run down area
Run down area that you never quite feel fully safe in. The kind of place that makes you want to close your curtains and double check you’ve locked your door.
Plenty of bus stops along the main road which goes right through E17, so it’s easy enough to catch a bus to Stratford from which you can get pretty much anywhere. Some nearby overground stations too within walking distance, but going to Stratford gives better transport options.
Very near the local primary school and nursery. Mostly couples and families living about, renting I think. Not great being so close to the main road though, as there’s still traffic noise and pollution.
Variety of small fast food food shops (think chicken shops, takeaway pizza, chinese), and convenience stores and a small Co-op nearby. There are some small nearby parks as well, but it’s also located well between larger areas of green like the wetlands, marshes, and Walthamstow forest.
Fantastic William Morris museum and yearly community events like the Mela
