The northernmost point of London, Enfields roots go back to Roman times and it is stood on the well known Ermine Street the road linking London with York and Lincoln. In more recent times, Enfield has been known for the manufacture of artillery and weaponry, indeed the 303 Lee Enfield rifle was produced here.
Enfield was once a small town some distance from London, but the rapid growth of London itself has turned it into a large suburb. The better known areas of Enfield include Edmonton, Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill. It is also home to three of the campuses of Middlesex University.

Although once a private estate in the sixteenth century, Pymmes Park was opened to the public in 1906 and boasts a historic walled garden. Other parks include Enfield Chase, which used to be a royal deer park, although much of it has now been deforested.

Edmonton Green shopping centre is one of the largest in the borough, and the Barclays Bank in Enfield was home to the worlds first cash point machine. Central London is accessible by tube and train, and there are regular bus services too.
