About the area
Haringey is famous for its literary connections. Sir John Betjeman lived in West Hill as a child, and Karl Marx is buried in nearby Highgate Cemetery. In the western half of the borough, Alexandra Palace, the last great Victorian exhibition space in Europe and the birthplace of television is located. It boasts panoramic views over London and hosts many major annual events. The Parkland Walk links Alexandra Palace to Finsbury Park, another vibrant North London area with a distinct local atmosphere.
The borough of Haringey has a very interesting motto - ‘Progress with Humanity'. Until the beginning of the XVIII century, Haringey was just a small village. However, afterwards, it became popular to settle near London. Some time passed by, and the development of the railways in the middle of the XIX century led to the increasing urbanisation of the area.
Nevertheless, the borough has a lot of parks, recreation grounds, and open spaces. It is also home to five ancient woods.
People with a moderate and calm lifestyle would love to live in this area.
