Living in Enfield area information and guide

Enfield area overview

Enfield is a district in the far north of London. Like much of outer London it used to be part of the county of Middlesex until it was absorbed into Great London in 1965. It's very much a district hub in its own right although a lot of residents commute towards the centre of London and out into Essex and Hertfordshire. The town centre was recently regenerated on a large scale and the Palace Exchange was created a the main shopping centre. Enfield has the distinction of having had the world's first cash machine (ATM). It was installed at the local branch of Barclays Bank in 1967.
