Lea Bridge has an average violent crime rate and an above average property crime rate for London.


Lea Bridge is yet another part of London that is undergoing gentrification thanks to arrival of a train station. Before the station made getting in and out more accessible, it was a forgotten neigbhorhood. It wasn’t a bad place to live; it just was very bland. This makes it one of the most affordable areas in all of London. Renting and buying is extremely reasonable. You can get a nice Victorian style home with three bedrooms for the price of a flat in other areas. Still, there isn’t a lot to do here so you’ll have to travel elsewhere for culture and entertainment. That's a lot easier to do now, though.

Lea Bridge is bordered on the north and east by Leyton, on the south by Lower Clapton, and on the west by Clapton.
