The London Borough of Waltham Forest is classed as an Outer London area and is situated in the north-eastern part of the city. A Waltham Forest holiday means that travellers will be able to experience a nice mixture of suburban life as well as being close to nature, the countryside and open space. A Waltham Forest holiday rental apartment will ensure that your stay will be as comfortable as possible, as well as providing you with some wonderful views of the contrasting city and countryside from the same window.
As the borough is located on the outskirts of the city and has a good amount of nature surrounding it, visitors will find that there is a wide variety of activities available to enjoy in Waltham Forest. Amongst the activities available on a Waltham Forest holiday are swimming, fishing, sailing, walking, horse riding, cycling, tennis, football, volleyball, archery and quad biking.
If you have enough energy to lock up your Waltham Forest holiday rental apartment and fancy heading out of London altogether for a time then it is worth stopping off at the town of Luton which is approximately 30 miles away from the English capital. One of the best attractions to be found in Luton is the Mossman Collection. Located in the town’s renowned Stockwood Park, the museum has a vast collection of horse-drawn vehicles from the 18th century up until the 20th century. Just a few miles from the centre of Luton is the wonderful Woodside Farm & Waterfowl Park which covers a generous 7 acres and is home to species of birds as well as rare-breed farm animals.
If booking a Waltham Forest holiday rental apartment is dependent on the weather then you will be delighted to hear that you can expect to enjoy very mild summers and cool winters. A Waltham Forest holiday is very popular during the months of July and August when the temperature during the day can reach a comfortable 23°C. The winter months of December and January see the temperature during daylight hours drop to anywhere between 5° and 8°C. The annual rainfall amount for the borough is 22 inches.
Travellers on a Waltham Forest holiday are most likely to start their trip by arriving at London Heathrow Airport (LHR) which is just under an hour’s journey from the borough. Airlines that can offer travellers frequent, cheap flights include British Airways, KLM Airways and BMI.
