About our home

We have recently redecorated our lovely,bright family home. We have a brilliant kitchen/ diner next to our garden. We love living in Walthamstow, it is a quirky and arty area with lots of museums and culture. It also boasts the longest street market in London!
We like to take walks and bike rides along the canal to trendy areas in Hackney or out towards the countryside, we are also close to Epping Forest here.
We are looking forward to our local park opening again, Lloyd Park is due to reopen in July with a new cafe, art gallery and tennis courts. Our local museum, the Willam Morris Gallery has also been re-done.
Walthamstow has great transport links, it takes around 20 minutes on the Victoria Line to get to Oxford Circus or 15 mins on the overland train to get to Liverpool Street. There are also plenty of buses that go directly to the Olympic Village which is about 30 mins by bus (and around the same by bike).
We are not sports fans and are hoping to get away during the Olympics so anyone that wants to be part of this would be ideal to swap! As well as the Olympics themselves we are in a host borough which means there are lots of events going on in our area. Ideally we would like somewhere that is near a beach and suitable for a couple and a teenager. We don't really mind which country as long as it is fairly cheap to fly to. We are looking for one or two weeks swap.
