"London village" Highgate by Sjalen

Highgate Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 39 photos

Highgate is one of those places I wish all London tourists would bother to explore. The tourists who DO find their way here do so for the famous cemetary but it is so nice to just stroll around the village itself. Yes, it's still called Highgate village, despite being amalgamated with London for the last 200 years. An area with the highest points in London, you often find youself looking out at the city below you feet. I lived not far away during my year in London and these days I'm sad that I spent far too little time here. Today, I wish I lived here, but it is one of the most expensive areas of London...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Suburban green - yet London fun
  • Cons:hilly, too expensive for me to live in
  • In a nutshell:Quintessential London
