Perhaps most famous for being home to Alexandra Palace and Tottenham Hotspur, Haringey also boasts 600 acres of green spaces. These include nature reserves, five ancient woodlands, and Finsbury and Alexandra Parks. In addition, 25 of Haringey’s parks have been awarded Green Flag status for being welcoming, safe, and involving the community.  

Besides this, the area has several theatres, performing arts centres, and music venues to its name. While the local ice hockey team plays at Alexandra Park, you can enjoy various boxing events and the World Darts Championship at the Palace. Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is, of course, a great asset for football fans, but there are smaller teams in the area too, alongside rugby league and athletics clubs.

Meanwhile, the area between Wood Green and Turnpike Lane Underground station hosts Shopping City, with Highgate providing more specialist shops. You’ll also find a great range of stores on Tottenham High Road, Muswell Hill, and Crouch End. If you like to sample international cuisine, make sure you head down to Green Lanes or visit one of the area’s vibrant food markets.

Sixteen National Rail, London Overground, and London Underground stations link Haringey to the City. The A10 runs from north to south through the east side, with the A1 extending across the southwest corner. Both link to the A406, which runs east to west, just north of the boundary. At the same time, the A105 cuts through the middle and features a string of shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants.

Figures released by Rightmove in January 2022 show that the average price for a home in Haringey was £704,207 over the past year. Flats drove most of the sales at £489,405 on average.
