Walford is a fictional borough of east London in the BBC soap opera EastEnders.

The name Walford is both a street in Dalston where one of the series’ creators, Tony Holland, lived and a blend of Walthamstow, where Holland was born, and Stratford. The suffix ’ford’ is also found throughout East London, for example, South Woodford. Walford’s London postcode district is E20 (real East London postcode districts only went up to E18 until 2011, when E20 was introduced to serve the London 2012 Olympic Park).

Walford’s fictional tube station, Walford East, is located on the EastEnders tube map in the position normally occupied by the real Bromley-by-Bow tube station.
