Walthamstow is a district of North East London, which was historically part of the county of Essex. It became part of Greater London in 1965. The name is based on the Old English ‘Wilcumestowe’ which means ‘The Place Of Welcome.’
Walthamstowe Village is a conservation area, and an attractive district to the east of the busy commercial centre.
The Village was voted ‘Best Urban Village In London’ by Time Out magazine, in 2004. It has a selection of specialist shops, restaurants and pubs. Upper Walthamstow, to the east, is served by railway, the Liverpool Street to Chingford line. There is an indoor market at Wood Street, which was the site of a cinema from 1912 to 1955, but the site now houses a variety of traders and was the subject of a documentary short.
1990S boy band East 17, who were all born there, took their name from the area’s postcode, and entitled their debut album Walthamstow. Blur’s Parklife album featured artwork based on photos of the band at Walthamstow Stadium. Notable past residents include William Morris, the artist and designer, and Johnny Dankworth, the musician.
