| Events in Wanstead | 10 Places to Stay

Wanstead is an attractive suburb of north-east London with a village centre and plenty of green spaces and woodlands. Located at the Essex border, Wanstead enjoys two extensive open areas that really belong to the neighbouring Epping Forest. One of these, Wanstead Park, was landscaped more than 200 years ago to form the grounds of Wanstead House, an exceptional Palladian mansion, since demolished. The Grade II-listed park, complete with lakes, is managed quite formally, but visitors can still find some wonderfully wild trails through the woods. In the summer, monthly events take place at The Temple, an 18th Century outbuilding. The site of the mansion, meanwhile, has become part of Wanstead Golf Course. The other main area of open land, the 450-acre Wanstead Flats, represents the southern extreme of the forest. With grasslands, a lake, ponds, small woods, copses and shrubs, the Flats are a valuable place for nature conservation. Wanstead Village has a charming atmosphere with a delightful church, the Grade I-listed 18th Century St Mary's, and a high street filled with boutiques, small shops and pavement cafés. Unsurprisingly (but unsuccessfully), the residents made a famous protest against the building of the M11 link road in the early 1990s.
