About Leyton

Leyton is incredibly multicultural. More than 60 percent of its residents are either Black, Asian or from an ethnic minority. There are many people whose origins are from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Ghana, Nigeria and Jamaica, and newer arrivals from Eastern Europe, in particular Poland. The average age of Leyton’s residents is 31.7 years, the result of a large number of families living the area. Leyton is traditionally a working class district although increasing numbers of young professionals are moving into the area, including a number of artists, attracted by the lower cost of studio space.

To find out more about the heritage of Leyton, keep an eye on our Discover Your High Street, Heritage Lottery Funded project.
