Highgate


Highgate is considered to be one of the most expensive suburbs of London. Situated at one of the highest points of London, Highgate enjoys panoramic views towards the city to the east and Alexandra Palace to the north and is nestled between huge parks of Hampstead Heath and Highgate Cemetery, in the borough of Haringey.

The area has enjoyed growing popularity with wealthy and influential figures since the 16th Century as a healthy retreat from the pressures of city life and worsening smog. Until late Victorian times, Highgate developed as a distinct village outside London, sitting astride the main road (today the A1) to the north. The area retains many green expanses including the eastern part of Hampstead Heath, three ancient woods, Waterlow Park and the eastern-facing slopes known as Highgate bowl.

The residents of Highgate comprise of an international mix families and professionals, although many of the residents around Highgate Village, Bishopswood Road and Highgate West Hill are occupied by a high-class community. Over the years Highgate has developed an active conservation body, known as the Highgate Society, to protect the character of the neighbourhood.

The mix of housing types date back from pre-Victorian times to modern twentieth century, purpose built blocks interspersed with numerous parks and woodlands, making Highgate a leafy suburb that is not too far from the city.
