Why move to Cheshunt?
Situated in the Borough of Broxbourne, lying entirely within the London Metropolitan Area and Greater London Urban Area, Cheshunt mixes the leafy suburbs of Hertfordshire with all the amenities and splendour of the capital on your doorstop.
Cheshunt made history as the birth place of the first monorail for passengers, known as the Cheshunt Railway, which was a horse drawn carriage on rails which transported children to school. Flash forward to the present and Cheshunt continues to be praised for its excellent commuter credentials, being conveniently placed less than half an hour’s journey into Liverpool Street Station and 40 minutes into Charing Cross station.
The town is a great mix of traditional and modern life, with plenty of shops and restaurants and the latest sporting facilities. It is the birthplace of Lotus Cars and was once the headquarters of the UK’s largest supermarket chain, Tesco until 2016.
It’s not all urban sprawl either. The town’s Bury Green neighbourhood was once the home of singer Cliff Richard and is characterised by a number of green wedges occupied by uses including schools, playing fields and allotments. The area is home to a number of large Victorian detached houses and provides quick access to the main train station.
Connections in Cheshunt are good. There is a train station in the town and both Theobalds Grove and Waltham Cross are within two miles of the town centre. They all fall within the London Oyster Zone 8, with trains running to Liverpool Street and Stratford. The town is located on the A10 (known locally as the Great Cambridge Road), which provides links to the M25. London City Airport is 15 miles by car and provides flights to most European cities.
Schools & Education
Cheshunt has a good range of school and nurseries to choose from. Primary schools are generally of a high standard, and Flamstead End School has received an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted report.
Secondaries are more mixed. Goffs School has been rated as one of the best in the area having been rated as ‘good’ following its last Ofsted inspection, while others have been told to make a number of improvements.

Paradise Wildlife Park is a fantastic place to take the kids to meet lions, tigers, monkeys, zebras, tapirs, reptiles, birds and more. Paradise is unique as visitors have the opportunity to touch and feed many of the animals and it is widely regarded as the most interactive zoo in the UK.
