About Enfield

Hugely popular with families with its access to great schools, amenities, large shopping centre, and surrounded by acres of green space with two beautiful country parks, Trent Park and the famous Forty Hall. Enfield is a market town in Greater London and is the historic centre of the London Borough of Enfield, covering the postcodes of EN1, EN2, EN3. Georgian and Victorian houses, period cottages, 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and terrace houses, and modern flats, show off a terrific mix of styles within the area.

The beating heart of the area is the Palace Gardens shopping centre with over 60 popular high street stores and restaurants, and a lively local market that has delicious food stalls, fruit and veg sellers, knick-knack sellers and more. If you enjoy a good walk spoiled, then make sure you check out Bush Hill Park Golf Club, set in 100 acres of peaceful parkland. The Club was formed in 1895 and has welcomed new members and visitors ever since.
