Enfield Lock

National Rail

Enfield Lock is a charming area located in the borough of Enfield in the Lee Valley Regional Park. With easy access from London's public transit system, Enfield Lock is the ideal place for a quick visit or a longer stay. Landscaped gardens and a tranquil lake are framed by trees and a quaint old bridge. There is something to please visitors of all ages, whether walking, cycling, canoeing, or bird watching.

The towpath along the Lee Navigation canal is a great place to start exploring the area. Here, visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll in the company of swans, mallards, moorhens and a variety of other birds and watch boats as they chug along the canal. There is also an outdoor cafe and restaurant that serves classic pub grub.

Enfield Lock is not only picturesque but also has a rich history for those who wish to explore. The Victoria County History project has uncovered evidence that the area was a busy trading hub in the 10th century. Reminders of the area's industrial heritage can also be seen in the factories, workshops, and mosques that line the canal. It's the perfect blend of the old and the new, an inviting and ever-evolving destination for a day or two out.
