The London Borough of Redbridge lies to the North East of London City and Central London and occupies 21.7 square miles with a population of approx 300,000. Redbridge comprises 24 districts and it has lots to offer the visitor, historical buildings and parks, good shopping and sports facilities.
Much of it falls within the County of Essex one of the oldest in England. It only a short "tube" journey from the hustle and bustle and excitement of the famous London's West End but within a few minutes you can experience Epping Forest, an ancient woodland donated by Queen Elizabeth 1st, plus farmland and nature reserves with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities.
The coastline of Essex is famous for its beaches and the nearest resort, Southend -on-Sea, has the world's longest pier (1.34 miles/2.16Km) with its very own train service!
Redbridge has excellent transport links with 7 Central Line Tube Stations, 3 Train stations and numberous bus services linking to the center and all districts.
JUST 30 MINUTES FROM LONDON'S WEST END
Number 10 is located in the leafy London Borough of Redbridge, Barkingside district, just 12 miles North East from the center of London's West End and only 5 miles from the 2012 Olympic Park & Stadium at Stratford which can be reached in just 13 minutes from the nearby Central Line London Underground (Tube) station at Gants Hill. Also at Stratford you will find the Westfield Shopping Centre - the largest in Europe with 254 stores, 80 restaurants, cinemas and casino.
Number 10 Hatley Avenue has private off-street car parking and two tube stations, Gants Hill and Barkingside, within easy reach on foot or by a very short bus ride. The London Underground (aka "The Tube") and Docklands Light Railway (DLR) make the whole of London and the suburbs easily accessible on foot without having to worry about parking and the daily "Congestion Charge" that operates in London city centre during weekdays. In fact a visit without a car is very easy and not inconvenient with plenty of public transport links from airports and railway stations. Locally there are many private hire car services and taxis in addition to the buses, trains and Tube services. In the centre there is also now a Cycle Hire Scheme that permits you to rent bikes by the day or hour
