Walthamstow is a suburban area in Greater London and the London Borough of Waltham Forest. The town is around seven miles north east of central London and Charing Cross, lying a short way south of the North Circular road route that runs through much of north London. Its proximity to the major business districts of central and west London has helped Walthamstow emerge as a popular residential location for thousands of business men and women but also for office space occupiers and companies of all sizes. The area offers an eclectic blend of cultural influences and goings on in terms of entertainment and activity options, and there are numerous sites of local interest and significance, as well as areas of natural beauty such as Epping Forest.
