About Enfield

Carved out by the melt waters of receding glaciers at the end of the last ice age, populated by hunter gatherers in prehistoric times, settled by the Romans, defended by King Alfred the Great against the Danes, listed in the Domesday book, and the site of the Yorkist victory in the Wars of the Roses – these are just a few of the many famous events that make up Enfield’s rich history.

The 82 square kilometres that make up today’s Borough of Enfield from Hadley Wood, Cockfosters, Southgate and Bounds Green in the west to the borders with Waltham Abbey and Chingford in the east, offer a fantastic mix of excellent schools, shopping, restaurants and transport. From luxury living in architecturally designed apartments on tree-lined avenues and spacious family homes overlooking countryside views to the studios, terraced homes and semis that make up the majority of the region’s property stocks, Enfield has a home for almost any taste and budget.

So whether you wish to live just a short train ride from the City or are looking for a vibrant centre with clubs, pubs and an active social scene, have a young family and are looking for schools, nurseries and parkland all within easy access, or are keen to find the perfect home in a place that offers an eclectic mix of cultures and tastes, Enfield could well be the place you are seeking.


Enfield is around 30 minutes from the centre of London from any of the borough’s main overground stations which include Enfield Chase, Enfield Town, Gordon Hill, Winchmore Hill, Grange Park, Bush Hill Park, Southbury Road, Brimsdown, Enfield Lock, Ponders End and Edmonton Green. And the borough’s London Underground stations are at Southgate, Cockfosters and Oakwood. Road routes are just as good with the M25 being the northern border of the borough and the A406 North Circular running east-west near the southern border, and with major roads such as the A111, A10 and A1010 running north-south between them.

Parks and Open Spaces

Enfield is one of the greenest boroughs in London, with approximately 900 hectares of parkland and open spaces. Enfield Council, as part of the wider national Greenways programme, is also in the process of developing a borough-wide network of open space access routes for walking, jogging and cycling to encourage greater outdoor health and fitness.


Enfield has 70 primary schools, 24 secondary schools, and six special needs schools within its borders.
