Haringey and Its Districts

The borough of Haringey was formed in the 1960s, when three former boroughs, Wood Green, Hornsey and Tottenham, joined together. Until the 18th century, it was in an area of countryside, and today parts of the borough are still among the greenest places in London.

One of its most famous open spaces is Alexandra Park, an urban oasis covering more than 190 acres and offering a haven for wildlife. The park is dominated by historic Alexandra Palace, nicknamed “Ally Pally”, which is currently undergoing regeneration. Finsbury Park is another well-known open space, offering many sports facilities. The borough has a wide range of landscapes and contrasting districts, with some wealthy areas and some of London’s less prosperous neighbourhoods.

Here is a look at some of the most popular districts within Haringey.

Crouch End

In the west of the borough, Crouch End has many attractive Edwardian red brick homes and other period properties. Many young professionals and couples live in the area, which has a high proportion of residents working in creative fields. The area has a number of good schools, which are a draw for families and property, and there is a sizeable demand from buy-to-let landlords. The centre of the district includes a variety of shops, restaurants and bars, clustered around the clock tower, a famous local landmark dating from the end of the 19th century.


Highgate spans 3 different boroughs, with its northern area coming under the umbrella of Haringey, while other parts are included in Camden and Islington. This leafy north London suburb includes some of London’s most expensive properties, with a lot of green space, including the ancient woodlands of Highgate Wood. Housing here includes many period properties in a wide range of styles, including Georgian terraces, Edwardian and Victorian semis, detached homes and flats. There are numerous restaurants, traditional pubs and cultural venues, adding to the urban village atmosphere.

Muswell Hill

Most of Muswell Hill is in the borough of Haringey, but a small section falls into the neighbouring borough of Barnet. Another of north London’s former villages, close to both Alexandra Park and Highgate Woods, the district has been named in surveys as one of the capital’s most desirable areas. Most of the housing in this district dates from the Edwardian era, with some homes from the 20s and 30s, including terraced homes as well as other styles of property. Muswell Hill has a good range of entertainment and cultural facilities, as well as independent shops and varied places to eat.

Stroud Green

Bordered by Finsbury Park, Stroud Green is next to Crouch End and Islington and has many Victorian properties. It has become increasingly fashionable over recent years, with some large houses which had been turned into flats being converted back into family homes. The high street has a variety of interesting cafes and food shops. Homes in Stroud Green are slightly more affordable than in some neighbouring districts.

Other neighbourhoods within Haringey include Hornsey, Wood Green, Harringay, Bowes Park and Northumberland Park.
