The Waltham Forest is a borough in northeast London, England. Its population was 276,983 in 2019 and is to be increased in 2022. It borders five other London boroughs: 

  • Enfield to the north-west, 
  • Haringey to the west, 
  • Hackney to the southwest, 
  • Newham to the south-east
  • Redbridge to the east,
  • non-metropolitan county of Essex to the north.

The borough was formed in 1965 by merging various municipal boroughs of Walthamstow, Leyton and Chingford. It got its name from Waltham Forest – an institution which managed deer in southwest Essex.

The River Lea lies to the west, where its associated marshes and parkland form a green corridor along the reservoir-lined reaches, separating north and east London. It is the historical border between Middlesex and Essex.

Waltham Forest was the host of the London Olympics in 2012. The Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre and part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park provided an ongoing legacy in the UK and London.
