The middle-class family’s dream location
It’s an up market zone with a lot of rich money around. If you’re lucky you might spot a b list celebrity and if you really want to you can go for walks in the back streets to look at the fancy houses that have been built for millions of pounds around Hampstead Heath. Mussell hill is close by and has a great buzz, loads of cool shops and local businesses with unique goods and services. Plenty of dog walkers around and even a fair few cats hanging about the streets. Yet to spot a fox which is also quite a rare thing to experience in london. The schools here are fancy and not entirely sure of whether there are any public schools around.
Train station is close by and has northern line connections, Highgate is pretty far up on the line so it’s around a 30 min journey to central london. Ps, bring earmuffs, probably the underground journey most likely to blow your eardrums. Many busses available and night buses also. Generally very reliable but can be choppy around rush hour. Driving here tends to be fine, not too much traffic most of the time but busy periods can get hectic. The main road is quite a core street but most of the time there aren’t any significant issues.
Mostly older people and middle aged professionals. Few young renters although young professionals are around. Tends to be families for the most part. Very quiet area and decent parking options. There are a few uncontrolled streets but residents parking is easy enough to get. Most homes here however have drives you may be fine on that front.
An affluent area littered with fancy cars (more Tesla’s than you can count) and plenty of sights to see. Fancy a walk in the park? Hampstead Heath is 5 mins away, too big? Then head down to Highgate Woods for a spot of cricket with a cup of tea from the cafe. There are plenty of local amenities, a 7/11 Sainsbury’s as well as plenty of local boss-man shops if you fancy risking it. There is also a theatre for those interested in the finer arts although it’s been hit pretty hard by the effects of the pandemic. Post office located on the main street and plenty of cooler shops like hipster coffee, an Italian deli, charity shops and plant stores too. Not the greatest for takeaways although there is a decent Turkish spot and a Chinese right next to each other but let’s be honest, Deliveroo gets you everything you want and more. Gyms are around but mostly personal trainer type of places so can be pricey. Your closest conventional commercial gym is a 10 min bus journey or 20 min walk away in Mussell hill. Not too bad but if you’re moving in anytime soon you’ll probably want to grab a pull up bar from Amazon given the pandemic and all. Train station is close by and has northern line connections, Highgate is pretty far up on the line so it’s around a 30 min journey to central london. Ps, bring earmuffs, probably the underground journey most likely to blow your eardrums. Rents aren’t too bad given what you get for your money, most homes have high ceilings and plenty of space so if you’ve got a rental budget of around £1500 a month in mind then you’ll be very satisfied with the quality (split between two makes it somewhat affordable for london standards). If I wasn’t so attached to the hood I’d give it a 10/10 but there’s not enough drama for my liking, if you want to sit out on the front porch/street corner with a cup of tea watching the neighbours argue, this is not the place. Otherwise it’s a pretty nice place to live.
Highgate is lined with many wonderful amenities
This is a quiet leafy area of north London, and is perfect for young families and pet owners with many child- and pet-friendly amenities, with links to Central London. It's quite simply a perfect domestic retreat from all the hubbub of London life.
There are plenty of buses and the Northern Line runs through Highgate Tube station, making journeys quick and easy for commuters. Depending where you are in Highgate you can be in Central London within half an hour by Tube.
It's a leafy part of north London with plenty of on-street parking, and the residents are made up of young professionals and families with Highgate school a walking distance for many.
Highgate is lined with many wonderful amenities including cafes, pubs, a butcher's, organic grocers and winery, local bookshop (not a chain!), the list goes on! In the summer, it's nice to pick up some organic strawberries from Greens of Highgate before strolling into the lovely Waterlow Park which includes a botanical garden, tennis courts and lakes filled with ducks and other wildlife. There's also a Tesco Metro which opens late for any emergency runs during dinnertime. Everything is easily within reach here.
The road under the bridge is not really safe at night
The area needs just a bit more mostly in security to become a prime example of a great neighbourhood.
The transport links are really great and quite frequent so it is easy to get whenever you want.
The parking is also good organised and easy. We can order parking permits easily from the council.
The local shops are great and more are emerging which makes the area really desired and creates a family feeling. We still miss a good pub around Archway Station and more fair trade shops.
Traditional with a strong sense of community and history.
