Harringay Area Guide
Harringay lies in the London Borough of Haringey in north London (just over 5 miles from the city), that for a host of good reasons attracts a wide range of buyers and renters. These range from first-time buyers to families and, increasingly, young professionals looking for a vibrant and up-and-coming area with well-connected links to the city.
You are spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants that have a distinctly local and warm feel about them. There are round the clock grocery shops and eateries that, with its fantastic cultural diversity, make Haringey the thriving community that it is.
There are endless opportunities for specialty shopping here with a lively mix of Greek, Turkish, Cypriot and Kurdish influences. This goes some way to explain why chefs in particular seem to love it here, as Haringey's main shopping street – the bustling and cosmopolitan Green Lanes – offers such a wide choice of the freshest ingredients at very reasonable prices.
A regeneration of Green Lanes has transformed the area, with extensive town centre landscaping, pedestrian friendly access and traffic calming drawing attention to an area well-worth investing in.
With generous open green spaces, attractive Victorian streets, a vibrant creative community, excellent transport links – including three train stations and direct links to Kings Cross and nearby St Pancras for Eurostar connections – Haringey is a lively part of town that's anything but anonymous!
