I will use this Greater London places that I consider a bit more off the beaten track where its not a typical tourist hotspot but still warrants a mention for excellent food or places of interest in the event you wish to add the areas to your itinerary.

For good Asian food head down to Tooting Broadway
Some trendy London spots I will cover here are Muswell Hill which has a nice village feel and some very good restuarnts it borders onto Alexander Park and Hornsey, sadly you can only reach this area by bus as there is no immediate rail service. Highgate will also be reviewed on these pages in due course.

I have recently discovered Stoke Newington well worth a visit and watch out for my sunday lunch review shortly of one a shortlisted top 20 roasts. Crouch End zone 3 but a terribly posh and sort after area to stay many nice eateries here and entertainment.

Do keep your eyes peeled much more to be posted here.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:hidden treasures outside of the zone 1 bottle gems to be found
  • Cons:a little more added to your travelcard outside zone 2 unless u bus it
