The Worst Things in Chingford, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Chingford.

The Worst Things
  • Rows and rows of takeaway shops, neon hell
  • Chingford has never had a real identity, it's stuck between London and Essex and takes the worse cultural aspects of both. Suburbia and a weakened version of it. Terrible.
  • chavs everywhere
  • Nobody has heard of it, you say 'I live in chingford', they say 'ching what?!'
  • The Mount -- R.I.P the Coppermill!!!
  • Chingford is mostly full of 16 to 22 year olds that are very 'Essex' in appearance and attitude. If you are looking for sophistication, intelligence, morals, integrity, well-travelled, unique individuals; then look elsewhere, and don't be surprised if they cant even spell half these words - let alone know what they mean! but if you want to experience a fun Essex night out but cant be arsed to go that far out of London then this is the place for you - and the girls are so easy that if thats what your after then you are guaranteed a good night out!

  • being so close to walthamstow!
  • We appear to be subsidising the the rest of Waltham Forest and we are not getting a great deal for our hard earned Taxes.But I guess when the bulk of the Council do not live in this lovely area, what do you expect.Carry on ripping us off in Chingford!Its no loss to the Borough when they can bleed us and not put anything back.
  • it's boring if ur between 13-18
  • Gangs of youths hanging about the streets very intimidating.
  • The fact that not enought of Chingford residents hard earned tax money gets spent in Chingford!!
  • there ain't none!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • House music playing Ralph Lauren shirt wearing reebok classic trainer fans, that all drive shit small engined cars with loud exhausts/stereos
  • coming home
