Enfield Town: Where city meets countryside

Those looking to move to somewhere where the city meets the countryside may want to consider looking at property for sale in Enfield.

Located 10.1 miles north-east of London's Charing Cross, Enfield Town is in the London Borough of Enfield.

It boasts a cobbled market square and is set in more than 2,000 acres of parkland and open spaces, making it one of London's greenest boroughs.

Those who enjoy the great outdoors can take a stroll around Trent Park or the public gardens of Capel Manor, which is home to a horticultural college.

Others may prefer to visit Forty Hall – a stately 17th century manor house or Myddelton House, which is full of exotic plants.

Enfield Town centre underwent a large amount of redevelopment work, which was completed in 2006. It saw the existing shopping centre extended and renamed Palace Exchange.

Those who like nothing more than visiting a good museum should enjoy Enfield Town, as it is home to Whitewebbs Museum of Transport.

People with children will be pleased to hear that there are many primary and secondary schools in the London borough of Enfield, including Enfield County School.

Some 72 per cent of Year 11 pupils at this school achieved five A*-C grades in their GCSEs last year.

For those with a passion for exercise, Enfield Town and the surrounding area have plenty to offer. For example, there is the Botany Bay Cricket Club, Enfield Lawn Tennis Club, Enfield Rugby Club and Drill Hall Sports Club.

Enfield Town railway station is in Travelcard Zone 5 and is the last stop on the line served by Greater Anglia from London Liverpool Street.

During off-peak times, there are usually two trains per hour to London Liverpool Street, however, during peak times, four or five trains serve the station.

There are also extra trains on Tottenham Hotspur's match days, when trains start at Enfield Town railway station and travel to White Hart Lane station.
