London area of E7 guide
What to do and where to stay in London's E7 neighbourhood
Forest Gate is not a London district that immediately springs to mind as one to visit, unless it sprouts some hotels and hang-out joints to cope with the overflow from Stratford in 2012. It's a residential area, which is quite literally the gate of Epping Forest, starting with the rural grasslands of Wanstead Flats to the north. The multicultural buzz of Green Street runs up from Upton Park with its profusion of South Asian and, to a lesser extent, Afro-Caribbean food and goods. The area is also home to West Ham Park, which offers a more horticultural experience to the wildness of Wanstead Flats.
