Woodford has always been an affluent, well-to-do suburb, aided partly by its proximity to Epping Forest. The area is characterised by large, semi-detached 1930s homes, mostly with gardens, and Woodford as a whole is a leafy, quiet area. There are numerous pubs and restaurants (particularly in South Woodford) and the Central Line means it is well connected to the city despite feeling far away from its hustle and bustle, the main reason why people choose to live here. Despite the area’s wealth house prices are relatively inexpensive compared to many other districts, making it popular with first time buyers as well as the odd third division footballer.
