Walthamstow is perhaps best known as the birthplace for iconic band East 17 but this funky suburban area of east London has lots more to offer too. From evenings out to shopping and culture too, Walthamstow is a one-stop metropolis for adventure.
As one of the historic areas of the capital, Walthamstow is reputed to remain true to its roots. Despite the modern developments, that’s very true and it’s possible to glimpse what life was like with a trip around the beautiful Walthamstow Village.
Another way to gain a sense of the true Walthamstow is to take a visit to its famous market. Originally opened in 1885, its popularity has never waned and today is an eclectic mix of local and exotic items. You’ll find everything from clothing, food and furniture with antiques too, complemented by plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can sit and simply enjoy the atmosphere.
Orford Road is one of the areas which is hot for retail therapy but here you’ll also find a little oasis of culture and calm. Penny Fielding is a modern gallery and has an array of innovative exhibitions which are changed every other month. Other galleries in the area include Cuttlefish Studios which features local artists, and the award-winning William Morris Gallery. With a £5 million renovation, the William Morris Gallery is something special to behold with wonderful views over the nearby Lloyd Park.
However, despite its many other places of interest, undoubtedly Walthamstow is most loved for its lack of convention and hip, youthful vibe. God’s Own Junkyard is an iconic venue which also has a home in LA, and here you’ll find authentic film props and signs upcycled and given new life. With a cafe to extend your stay a little longer, and a liquor licence too, God’s Own Junkyard attracts tourists from far and wide.

Walthamstow Coach Hire
Getting around London isn’t easy if you don’t know your way, and there’s lots to organise if you plan on driving such as the congestion charge and parking. By contrast public transport may seem easier, but it’s often crowded to bursting point and means you’ll lose some of the flexibility in your schedule.
If you want to explore every corner of Walthamstow and enjoy the very best it has to offer, coach hire could be the answer. A great way to get around the capital, you can sit back and relax while the driver takes you wherever you need to be. No hassle, no stress – just comfort and luxury for you and all your passengers.
A coach is a great solution if you’re in a large group. As well as offering convenient transport to any location in Walthamstow, it provides many more conveniences too. The vast majority of coaches now offer extras such as onboard bathrooms, air-con, reclining seats and WiFi too.
