Archway - the good and the not so good
Archway is a mobile area, changing all the time. Thankfully it is still family friendly with good schools at all levels. There are many Archway communities that have flourished on the internet and their is widespread local help during the pandemic for vulnerable residents.
Absolutely outstanding links to of London, south to the West End and the City and plentiful routes both local and further field over all of north London.
On my estate, there are good bin collection facilities, a mixture of owners and renters. Both couples, singles and families populate this area with close links to all of Archway.
Archway N19 is an area of many changes. Still part of the older London localities, it has in recent years accelerated its progress to a much more modern central area of north London. It has attracted new shops - not always to everyone's pleasure, but Aldi, M&S Foodhall and modern lively coffee shops are welcome additions. A new road system around Archway Tavern has made access to the central island easy. So what are the good things. A great London hospital - Whittington - a matter of hundreds of yards from Archway Centre. Easy access to Parliament Hill and Hampstead Heath with the mysterious and famous Highgate Cemetery en-route. Archway also has the most fantastic transport links with connections by Underground and bus directly to the West End and the City of London as well of links all over north London with plentiful buses and British Rail network. On the downside is that property prices and rents have increased in the last few years. High buildings are proposed for the Archway island area. Also local pubs have diminished in quantity and few older taverns remain. What is needed is a good ironmonger to replace the much missed Thomas Bros. And more local shops and creativity would be welcome. But still a great place to live and work
Everything you need right by the park
The area north of NW5 is very safe, quite posh and traditional, although quite multicultural as well in some places, especially around the tube stations. It is nice with children with several schools a walkable distance, and perfect for pets: it isn't rare to see cats walking around, and of course Hampstead Heath a few minutes away is dog heaven with a lot of furry friends walking around. I really like the feeling of being in a village with everything close and the park with a beautiful view on the city, all while being very close to Central London with transportation.
I find transportation very good. The tube (Kentish Town and Tufnell Park) could be a 10-15 minute walk depending on where you live in NW5, but there are buses everywhere, going everywhere in London. I find them really practical and cheap, and they run really often even at night. With the overground as well there are many options for transportation that are reliable, safe and clean. However during rush hours I would recommend the underground to go to Central London, as traffic can be unpredictable and buses can take longer than planned, so there are better for short distances.
In my street there are mainly families and empty nesters or retired people, there doesn't seem to be many young children though so it is also very quiet but still lively. The main streets might be noisy but mine and most streets around are very quiet. I have seen no problem with parking availability, bin collection or anything else, and the streets are always very clean.
There is everything someone could need around Kentish Town underground station: shops from the cheapest (Lidl) to the highest quality/organic cute shops and everything in between, bars around the main street, and every food option throughout the neighbourhood so no need to walk too far. There are also a lot of nice restaurants and shops around Tufnell Park station for those who live more north of NW5. You won't find much for clothes shopping but there's several charity shops, libraries, and also medical centres, banks, or anything needed. For events there is the O2 Forum, and Hampstead Heath is a few minutes away (the best part!) so you could easily never leave the neighbourhood. Transportation is really good as well with the Northern line, Overground, and buses going everywhere in London. NW5 is the perfect place to have a more relaxed lifestyle, by the park, with quiet streets but every amenity a short walk away - all while living only 20 minutes from central London and a walking distance from Camden. It might not be as vibrant as other London neighbourhoods though, maybe more adapted for families and professionals than students.
It is very easy to get to Kings Cross from this area .
It is very easy to get to Kings Cross from this area . Either by tube or even bus. Very close and convenient.
Well connected to central london with Northern Line at Archway Tube Station. Also buses and night buses going into central which area very useful.
Best thing is how close Hampsteah Heath is. Walking distance. For stretching and a bit of exercise. Don't like how unwelcoming is when you go out in the tube station (Archway).
Apart from the main street, where you can find typical fast food shops, there is nothing much really in this area. Quite residential.
All the neighbours are lovely and there’s a good sense of community.
