Leytonstone was initially the gateway to the City of London and has been trodden by countless millions from the 10th Roman Legion over two thousand years ago to the latter day legions of men and women who work in the City of London and Docklands.
Famous people that have lived in Leytonstone include Sir Alfred Hitchcock, David Beckham and Jonathan Ross.
One infamous person who passed through Leytonstone and reputably stayed at the Green Man (now O’Neill’s Pub) was Essex born Highwayman Dick Turpin on route to Norwich and eventually his appointment with the Hangman at York in 1739
Leytonstone is thought to have taken its name from a Roman military distance marker and is shown on maps from early times as “Leyton Stone”.
Due to the Olympics, there has been an influx of Young City Professionals into the area, hence, an array of internet Cafes and Bars are readily available. Whilst there is a local night life in Leytonstone, the fact that the West-end (Greatest Party Area in the world!!) is only 15min -20 minutes door-to-door for most residents by tube, means everyone generally parties in the West-End and then leave the chaos to come back home to a totally residential and relatively peaceful area.
But for completeness here is a general overview of this part of London: Shopping is the lifeblood of any main centre in London and it’s the same in Leytonstone. An amazing array of shops, pubs and restaurants stretch the length of High Road.
In Leytonstone you can enjoy the benefits of shopping in the top high street stores and stock up at the best supermarkets. But you can also enjoy shopping at friendly smaller shops that have often been in the same family for generations, flowers, exotic fruits, jewellery and even good old-fashioned brushes and brooms, the choice is endless.
You are never far from a good pub, café or restaurant offering drinks and menus from around the world. Leytonstone enjoys the best of both worlds with pubs that in the 18th Century were stopping places for the Norwich Stage Coach. The Red Lion Pub (now called Zulus) was earlier known as the Robin Hood. As Leytonstone did not have a Town Hall the Red Lion was used as a meeting and social gathering place.
Epping Forest is the domineering parkland which still bedazzles tourists and locals alike with its charming lake and endless trees which makes you imagine you are miles away from London rather than in the middle of it. It is worthy a visit especially on a Sunday when the whole forest is buzzing with locals having picnics.
