Safe area for family and friends
Leyton is very close to the Olympic site and so is getting millions of pounds of investment including a lot of new cycle routes and improvements to streets with new lighting/trees and more. The station is also being improved. The great thing about Leyton is that whatever time of night you get back, there are always plenty of people around and shops open on your way home-so I feel quite safe, I live in the end near the tube station and we have a useful retail park with ASDA, B&Q, Next,and TKMaxx. There are way too many fast food shops but gradually they are being replaced with alternative shops - we now have a Spanish restaurant, Portuguese Restaurant and a smoothie shop.
Leyton is great for access to the city we're just 12min to Liverpool St (4 stations), and 5 min to Stratford. Eurostar and CrossRail will soon run from Stratford too....
Good tube service, all amenities close.
Mixture of cultures
Leyton particularly the area which borders Leytonstone is very peaceful, quiet and full of nice victorian/edwardian period homes, and benefits from both all of the shops in Leyton such as (M&S simply food the new Tesco express, Sainsbury's local to restaurants in Leyton and Leytonstone, Tesco superstore, trendy new pubs and bars, Matalan, all major banks, etc would definitely recommend you check it out.
We have excellent transport links (tube, overland, bus), just a couple of stops away from Stratford Westfield in a very up and coming, cosmopolitan area.
Close to Stratford and the Olympic Park; it is safe, lively but fairly quiet too!
Leyton is possibly the most diverse part of the Waltham Forest borough
Leyton is an inexpensive, friendly and mixed community area, it's very chilled out, not too busy, one stop from Leyton for all your shopping needs as well as countless different shops and services on the high road. Also a green park on the high road. Good transport links (underground and overground station).
FAST CENTRAL LINE.
