It is located 8 miles from Charing Cross and bordered to the east by Ilford, to the west by Forest Gate, to the north by Wanstead, and to the south by the district of East Ham. Featuring a conservation area and several community centres, Manor Park is an accessible yet charming London neighbourhood a lot of young families are happy to call home.

Manor Park residents can enjoy numerous outdoor activities in the plentiful neighbourhood parks and at Wanstead Flats and they have plenty of sporting activities to choose from, too.

Manor Park Lifestyle

Manor Park is a multicultural, historic, suburban village that attracts more and more young families looking for a quiet and accessible area. Its affordable properties and growing community are especially attractive to families with young children wanting to buy their first home. In fact, 25% of its population is now between 0-15 years old.

Inexpensive Victorian terraces and widely available green spaces, together with the excellent transport links (the Crossrail in particular) are also some of the very enticing features that attract new residents. Manor Park is also a safe place to live, with crime rates lower than the London average. Surprisingly, you can even find parking here, unlike the rest of the city.

With walking paths, bicycle paths, waterways, numerous parks, and good schools, there’s little else you could want from a London neighbourhood that Manor Park does not deliver on.
