From the once small, quiet market town in the county of Middlesex, today Enfield North London, or the London Borough of Enfield to be precise, is an ever growing in demand location.

Getting about

With Enfield boasting three rail lines, Enfield Lock station for Liverpool Street; west Enfield Town also to Liverpool Street, and Enfield Case conveniently taking you to Moorgate and Kings Cross, then you can start to see why this is a prime location for savvy commuters.

Schools

Excellent, in fact you will find yourself spoilt for choice, as according to the Enfield Independent 100% of students at the top two secondary schools in the Borough receiving 5+ A* to C grades, with the following three secondary schools rounding of the top 5 getting 99%, 99%, and 98% respectively.

In terms of primary schools, well excellent again with notably Eversley Primary School being deemed 'outstanding' in the most recent Ofsted report.

What's there?

Well for starters you should definitely look to pay a visit to the King & Tinker Pub. Ok as pub I hear you say? Well not any pub, this is believed to be the oldest pub in England, with some aspects of the brewery dating back to the 16th century.

Forty Hall is another popular destination, dubbed as one of the finest houses in England, standing in its own estate with formal gardens, parkland, lakes and café. In the summer expect bands to play outside in the courtyard as you relax in the sunshine.

House Prices

Last year the majority of property sales in Enfield Town involved flats, which sold for an average of £233,323. Terraced properties fetched on average £361,334, while semi-detached properties averaged £450,058.
