Fundamental to the regeneration of Ilford is the Crossrail Station, which links to Canary Wharf in around 17 minutes. Ilford Station is in Zone 4, and existing services to Liverpool Street only take 18 minutes and another reason for the area’s popularity with commuters. Will Crossrail be bringing you to work when the project is complete?

Property prices are more favourable than areas like Stratford and make Ilford a tangible alternative with many important reasons to buy or rent a home. 1930s terraced and semi-detached properties are commonplace. However, you can also expect to find flat conversions, new build developments and towers like Pioneer Point explicitly designed for the rental market.

Ilford and its immediate surrounding areas are home to some beautiful parks and green spaces, including South Park, Seven Kings Park and Valentines Park. South Park is a Green Flag awarded open space with a beautiful lake. It’s popular with walkers, runners and those who enjoy a breath of fresh air.

Improving town centre infrastructure, Crossrail and other rail connections, great shopping, and open spaces improve Ilford’s popularity.
