Your neighbourhood

Waltham Forest is a strong, diverse community, home to people from all walks of life and almost every corner of the world.

As a borough, it’s an exciting place to live. But if you’ve just arrived, you’ll want to get to know your own local patch too, whether that’s Chingford, Walthamstow, Leyton or Leytonstone.

Each neighbourhood has its own character. In this section you’ll find links and listings for things to do and places to explore near you. And if you’d like to be more hands-on, there are links and listings for community groups as well as chances to volunteer or get involved.

We are keen to promote activities and initiatives run by residents for residents.
