Things to see and do in Chingford
A huge part of Chingford’s charm is being able to lose yourself in pretty natural environments just steps from home. This starts at the Chingford Plain which forms the northern part of town, home to Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge and the Connaught Club, great if you’re into lawn bowling. On the edge of the plain is Connaught Water, a beautiful spot for a walk which leads you into the vast Epping Forest.
In the opposite direction, the Lee Valley reservoir chain and sprawling Lee Valley Park provide you with endless opportunities for walking, cycling and running, while you can even try your hand at white water rafting too. From Hawkwood Nature Reserve to the stunning views up Lippitts Hill, this is a wonderful place to live if you love being outdoors.
Chingford is also a great place to live if you have children. The town’s St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is rated as outstanding by Ofsted, along with local secondary, Trinity Catholic High School. Chingford CofE Primary and Heathcote School and Science College are further options which have been classed as good by Ofsted, while Normanhurst School is an all-through mixed independent.
Chingford transport links
Chingford has a train station on the London Overground network, which offers direct services to Liverpool Street station that take around half an hour. If you live in the east of town then you’ll be close to Buckhurst Hill Tube station, which is on the Underground’s Central line. The M11 motorway passes close to here, while Chingford is also conveniently located for the M25.
