Buckhurst Hill is part of the Epping Forest district of Essex, bordering Greater London and has a lovely village feel. It is served by two Central Line stations – Buckhurst Hill in zone 5 and Roding Valley slightly further to the south in zone 4. There are also several bus routes serving local towns and travelling towards London.
The main retail area of Buckhurst Hill is Queens Road, a one-way road with a wide choice of boutique shops, jewellers, a dance and fitness studio and plenty of coffee bars and restaurants as well as a large Waitrose.
There are a wide variety of public houses in the area, most notably the Three Colts with its stripped floors and exposed beams and The Monkham’s, a convivial tavern providing sports on TV and outside seating who both provide food as well as the standard ales and spirits. There’s also the Toby Carvery for a good old Roast Dinner.
