One of the greenest suburbs in North-West London, Enfield is known for its historic manor houses and up-and-coming retail scene, making it a very family-friendly place to live. A fun fact about Enfield is that on the borough’s coat of arms, there is a mythical creature called ‘Enfield’ which features the ‘head of a fox, chest of a hound, talons of an eagle, body of a lion, and the hindquarters and tail of a wolf’.
