Window Shutters in North London from Shutters Factory
From the pomp of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to the thriving street markets of Camden, to the chic Victorian streets of Islington, north London contains a diverse range of districts and property types.
Shutters Factory provide a wide range of quality window shutters for commercial and domestic customers across all of north London’s districts. Here is our borough-by-borough guide to North London.
Barnet is London’s largest borough by population size, with more than 380,000 people. It shares a border with Hertfordshire and five other London boroughs and is famous for the Brent Cross shopping centre, one of the first American-style malls in the UK.
The borough of Barnet includes Golders Green, Finchley and other multicultural areas. The priciest homes tend to be in the north in Totteridge and Barnet itself, but Hampstead Garden Suburb in the south frequently tops the list when it comes to having some of the UK’s most expensive streets.
This lies directly to the south of Barnet and is a borough most famous for its street markets, pictured, which attract a lot of tourists and young professionals. It also has a thriving (counter)-culture scene.
The borough enjoys some of the most famous parks and views in London (including parts of Hampstead Heath, Regent’s Park, and Primrose Hill), so it’s one of the most desirable areas to live in the capital, which is helped further by being on the Northern line of the Underground.
Enfield is the most northerly London borough, and includes the towns of Edmonton, Southgate. Palmers Green and Enfield itself. The borough, and particularly Enfield town, has a mix of Victorian houses, 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and terrace houses and modern flats. The borough has a population just over 330,000.
Like Camden, Hackney is famous for its cultural scene – its markets, its food and its nightlife – that attract a lot of young urban professionals. The borough has a rich industrial history. However, many of the warehouses and factories have now been converted into shared homes, nightclubs and art galleries.
The main centres of population are Hackney itself, Shoreditch and Stoke Newington. On its eastern boundary is Hackney Marshes, famous for its many football pitches and for being part of the Olympic site for the 2012 games.
This borough is located directly south of Enfield and has some of the most prosperous areas of London, such as Crouch End and Muswell Hill that are popular because of their good schools, green spaces and low crime levels. The borough is also home to Alexandra Palace and Tottenham Hotspur FC.
With a population of just over a quarter of a million people, a wide range of properties can be found in the borough, from Georgian terraces to modern apartments.
This is a suburban area and is part of three London boroughs – Haringey in the north, Camden in the south and west, and Islington in the south and east. It is famous for its cemetery, where Karl Marx and George Eliot are buried, along with many other notable people. The area also enjoys great views over part of Hampstead Heath.
Highgate contains a lot of period properties – Georgian and Edwardian townhouses and Victorian terraces – plus more modern mock-Tudor apartment blocks and mansion flats near Highgate High Street.
Islington is famous as being the spiritual home of the ‘liberal elite’, particularly politicians. The area is home to a thriving shopping and food and drink scene. It is full of Georgian and Victorian townhouses and crescents up towards Highbury, as well as some substantial family homes. However, a lot of the homes are also relatively new, having replaced those bombed during the Second World War along with overcrowded terraces which were demolished shortly afterwards.
If Islington is where politicians go home to, then Westminster is where they work. It’s both a city and a borough, and can be classified as north London because it is north of the Thames.
It is home to the Houses of Parliament and many other world-famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square and most of the West End. Despite its location in the heart of the city, Westminster still has a range of different properties from contemporary apartments with all the mod-cons to impressive houses that back onto Regent’s Park. As a result of its central location, it is one of the more expensive areas in the capital.
