Enfield transport linksIn zone five and 10 miles north of central London, Enfield's appeal is boosted by both road and rail links.
The M25 sits on the northern edge of the borough, while the A10 Great Cambridge Road runs from junction 25 of the M25 south to Shoreditch and north to the M11 south of Cambridge.
The Overground runs from Enfield Town into Liverpool Street and takes around 30 minutes, with the option to change for the Underground at Seven Sisters.
Trains from Enfield Chase run into Moorgate in 30 minutes and again commuters can change to the Underground, this time at Highbury & Islington or Finsbury Park.
Schools in EnfieldAs well as the attraction of green space and commuter links, Enfield's schools are also top of the tree.
Among the primary schools rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted are St George's RC, Eversley, Worcesters, Forty Hill CofE and Enfield Heights.
Enfield County School for Girls and Highlands secondary schools, meanwhile, are also judged to be 'Outstanding'.
Shopping in EnfieldWhen living in an outer London zone, it's easy to assume that central London is the only place where lovers of shopping can satisfy their craving for high street giants.
Not so in Enfield, which has no fewer than three shopping centres, not to mention vibrant high streets bursting with independent retail and food outlets.
The Palace Gardens and Palace Exchange shopping centres are a stoneâ€™s throw from Enfield Town and Enfield Chase stations and house the likes of H&M, Next, Monsoon, Topman and New Look, as well as independent department store Pearsons.
The Palaces also feature a JD Sports store and full service M&S.
Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, meanwhile, boasts a host of independent stores alongside more common household names, while Southgate High Street and the A10 Retail Park offer yet more retail therapy for locals and visitors.
Eating out in EnfieldAmong the more commonly-known chain restaurants, Enfield's unique eateries across various cuisines are hugely popular with locals.
Few are better than The Beautiful South on Windmill Hill, which has served classic British and Mediterranean fare since 1998.
Lovers of Indian food, meanwhile, should head to The Poppadom, also on Windmill Hill, which serves a host of classic Indian and Bangladeshi dishes in a great atmosphere.
Things to do in EnfieldEnfield's green spaces really are second to none and can transfer even the most urban soul away from life in the city.
Trent Park and Forty Hall are the best spots, while Broomfield Park and Capel Manor Gardens are also worth a visit.
