Buckhurst Hill

Buckhurst Hill may be a small town in West Essex, surrounded by forest and fields, but its residents enjoy a great selection of pubs, restaurants, boutique shops and salons. Perhaps the best parade and most sought-after street is Queens Road, which is a short walk from Buckhurst Hill Underground Station, and features a Waitrose supermarket. Besides being part of the “Essex Golden Triangle” and frequented by TOWIE stars, Buckhurst Hill is also famous for having Dick Turpin run a butchers in the town.

Situated on the edge of Buckhurst Hill is Knighton Wood & Lake, an area of forest land that is very popular with local people. Most days you will see dog walkers, cyclists, fishers and bird watchers.
