Enfield, Greater London

Overview

Enfield is one of London’s boroughs that was named in the Domesday Book, where it was listed as Enefelde in 1086. Since that time, it was home to a palace lived in by King Edward VI and his sister, then the Princess Elizabeth (years before she would become Elizabeth I). Enfield grew with the Industrial Revolution, as much of London did, and today is one of the many outlying suburbs that make up Greater London. With so much history and so many residents, you can bet there are plenty of things to see and do in the borough.
