About Ilford

Ilford is a large town in East London, within the London Borough of Redbridge. Ilford is a commercial retail centre surrounded by extensive residential development. Historically, Ilford was a small rural settlement in southwest Essex but the arrival of the railway caused a rapid growth in population and saw Ilford become a municipal borough. Our letting agents recommend Ilford to those who want convenient access to the city, but more bang for their buck.

Local Tips

Ilford still offers the cosmopolitan diversity we used to see in the hubbub of central London, it is becoming increasingly popular with young professionals who are patiently waiting to make use of the Elizabeth Line. Our letting agents love Valentines Park, a 130 acre green space equipped with a boating lake, basketball courts, and football fields. We also recommend Saravanaa Bhavan for south Indian vegetarian food.
