Tottenham Hale: North London’s newest boomtown

Living on the Victoria line is desirable, yet usually expensive. Living in Tottenham Hale is a great way to square the circle, offering easy access to the tube line, but at much lower prices than the average. Explore at one of North London’s biggest boomtown areas and see if it could be a good fit for you.

Is Tottenham Hale a nice place to live?

Tottenham Hale is now a thriving area, after undergoing massive, decades-long regeneration efforts. Today, it’s a highly desirable living option for renters and first-time buyers wanting to get on the property ladder.

Thanks to major investments, Tottenham Hale has shed its industrialised past, becoming an open, affordable residential area designed and built with eco-friendliness and enjoyable city living in mind. You can see this in everything from the expansive cycleways to the nature reserve projects across the area.

Adding to its appeal, Tottenham Hale has excellent local amenities and outstanding transport links. Its retail park and revamped town centre are at the heart of the community, and the rest of North London lies within easily reachable distance. Thanks to the Victoria Line, you can be in Oxford Circus within just 15 minutes.

Is it good to buy in Tottenham Hale?

Tottenham Hale represents a very attractive prospect for buying property. Despite being directly on the Victoria Line, the area’s property price average is almost exactly half that of homes in areas near to the line – around £405,000 vs £808,000. Also, Tottenham Hale property is cheaper than 80% of all properties found in other Zone 3 areas.

Tottenham Hale is also part of the Crossrail 2 Project, connecting northeast and southwest London. Once complete, the project is likely to bring a significant property price rise to the area. This makes it a good place to invest in now.

What is Tottenham Hale famous for?

Historically, Tottenham Hale was a manufacturing hub for specialised timber products. The ‘Hale’ in the name comes from the word describing hoisting up heavy goods, like timber.

Is Tottenham Hale London safe?

In 2020, Tottenham Hale’s borough of Haringey recorded 28,864 crimes, which is 101.1 crimes per 1000 people. This is lower than most central London boroughs, and significantly lower than neighbouring Camden and Hackney.

While Tottenham Hale does experience issues with crime, efforts to regenerate are steadily reducing the regularity and severity of crime here.

What is there to do in Tottenham Hale?

Great days out in Tottenham Hale include a trip to Tottenham Marshes, one of the many nature reserves in the area. Bruce Castle Museum is another favourite. This is a grand 16th century manor house that originally belonged to the “Bruce” family of Scotland.

Of course, there’s always the 60,000-seater stadium that’s home to Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. On a match day, the atmosphere and spectacle are unmissable.

The transport links are a major pull to the area, opening up nearby North London and the rest of the city via the Underground.
