Although the railway arrived in the 1830s, Seven Kings didn’t start to develop as an area until the early 20th century. It was part of Essex until 1965, when it became part of Greater London. The area is mainly residential and is characterised by bungalows and purpose built blocks; there are various green spaces with Seven Kings Park providing tennis courts and a bandstand, while there is a golf course, farm and fishing lake at Hainault Forest Country Park. Seven Kings links to central London via the overground which runs to Liverpool Street from Seven Kings railway station and the Central Line from Newbury Park.
