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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

In the summer there is such a lovely atmosphere with stalls from one end to the othe

In the summer there is such a lovely atmosphere with stalls from one end to the other. Entertainment, singing, home made cooking and arts and crafts. People are polite with manners. There are many schools to choose from and have good Ofsted reports. There is a variety of culture and people are accepted for who they are regardless of how they dress, disability, gender or their skin colour

Transport

The bus stops are very close and basically right near your doorstep but train stations are a bit of a trot. The 271 is always available so quite handy for taking you to the train st.

Community

Free parking in my street, bins are collected regularly, a very quiet area with very limited anti social behaviour. there is a variety of home owners to renters, couples, elderly and people living on their own.

Amenities

Highgate Village has a vast choice of amenities from Organic stores, fresh meat at your local butchers to pampering your pets! Pubs and coffee shops bustling and bursting with people on a summers day and dogs stopping off for drinks from bowls filled with water to quench their thirst. However it lacks a bit of take away services such an Indian kebab or a Chinese. I would love to stop off on a Friday night after work and get any one of these delicious take-aways!

Highgate is a lovey place to raise children

overall i love the atmosphere of my area and think it is a social and loving community

Transport

transport is okay. there are many busses and for the size of the area i would say the amount of travel available is appropriate. Rush hour would be my only issue but i don’t think that is the areas fault

Community

I would say the anti social behaviour is okay as it is kept to a minimum but there are certain aspects you cannot control such as members of public

Amenities

Highgate is a lovey place to raise children. They go to an amazing school in the area and there are a great range of activities. My only change would to make somewhere for the youth to go.
