Living in Gidea Park area information and guide

Gidea Park area overview

Gidea Park in the far east of London has an interesting architectural history. It contains Romford Garden Suburb which was constructed in 1911 as an exhibition in town planning. Over 100 architects competed to underpin the best planning scheme for the district and as a result six of them are currently Grade II listed buildings. The area is very residential with a train line taking commuters into Liverpool Street in 30 minutes.
