Walford is a borough of East London that is well know as the setting for the popular BBC soap opera EastEnders and is located in postal district E20 in the heart of the East End. Walford has a tube station, Walford East, which is located near Bromley-by-Bow tube station. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Walford area.
Walford’s most famous location is Albert Square, containing as is does the center of the community, the Queen Victoria pub, but there are many other places in Walford that have gained notoriety. Bridge Street is the main street in to Albert Square and is home to the Walford street market, which includes a fruit and vegetable stall previously run by Pete Beale, Mark Fowler and Martin Fowler. Businessman Ian Beale once planned to remove the market in favour of a shopping centre, much to the dislike of the residents and his family. In 2004, the residents celebrated 100 years of the market.
Bridge Street also includes many of the businesses in the area. There is a mini-supermarket named Minute Mart (formerly First ‘Til Last). There is also an unusually busy launderette. The launderette is often seen as a mystery as people wonder why nobody owns a washing machine. However, heavy discounting in light of the credit crunch may mean the days for this old fashioned business may be numbered.
Also in Bridge Street is the Bridge Street Café, which is currently owned by a local entrepreneur, Ian Beale, who apparently named this establishment after his mother. Bridge Street is so called because of the rail bridge, the sounds of trains going past are often heard. Victoria Square is home to a number of bedsits and is more run down than Albert Square, which has been gentrified during the property bubble, a process that is even more pronounced in George Street. There is also the Argee Bhajee, a well known Indian restaurant. Turpin Way includes The Arches, a light industrial area where some local workshops and a garage are located, and there is a community center near by.
In Turpin Road there is a post office, one of the few surviving in this part of London, a bookmakers and Beale’s Plaice, the local chip shop, also owned by Ian Beale. The Borough war memorial is also here, paying tribute to residents of Walford who perished in the First and Second World Wars.
There is also a night district of Walford comprising a nightclub called R&R (originally named The Market Cellar). The club has become more of a destination since club extended its space when it bought the next door snooker club but many people in Walford still choose to go to the nearby hotspots of Brick Lane and Farringdon.
