A Guide To Highgate A Guide To Highgate

A Guide To Highgate






Photo credit: Elizabeth Bourne
Hampstead?s neighbor to the east with abundant greenery in every direction is the must-visit area of Highgate. There’s a delightful Georgian-village feel that?s miraculously intact despite its relative proximity to the city. Highgate was a village until the late Victorian period, so named because of its hilltop position (it?s one of the highest spots in London).
A wide range of noteworthy figures have lived and worked here since then. This includes Charles Dickens, Samuel Coleridge (who came to rid himself of his laudanum addiction), TS Eliot, Sir John Betjeman, Rod Stewart and Peter Sellers. But what does Highgate have to offer the casual visitor"
Here’s our guide to one of the prettiest areas in all of London.
Go for a leisurely stroll along Highgate High Street

Part of Highgate?s charm is its relative seclusion from its surrounding areas: even the tube station (Zone 3, on the Northern Line) is a 10-minute walk from the village proper. Don?t let that put you off though. From the station, you need to cross the road opposite and turn right. Cross Archway Road and continue up the hill along Jackson?s Lane. Turn left at the top onto Southwood Lane – it will bring you to the top of the high street after five minutes.
Here you will find a smattering of cafes and shops to peruse at your leisure. Though coffee chains like Costa and Cafe Nero have a found a foothold, you can always try the wonderfully cosy, High Tea of Highgate.
Visit the traditional pubs

Highgate is home to some of the very best pubs in London, where you can sample classic British fare such as fish and chips, as well as enjoying a traditional ale. For a high-quality gastropub experience, look no further than The Flask on Highgate West Hill which is tastefully decorated, and serves hearty pub food. The GateHouse  – at the top of the high street – is a timbered affair which stands on the site of the old toll gate. A quirky detail is that it even includes a working theater. The Angel Inn, is a modestly sized, but smartly appointed place with a variety of ales.
Slightly further afield (take the 210 bus towards Brent Cross), The Spaniards Inn on Hampstead Lane, is a former haunt of Charles Dickens and legendary highwayman Dick Turpin. It?s as close to an idyllic country pub as you?re likely to find in London. Get snug with a tipple by the fireside in the winter.
Visit Highgate Cemetary

Opened in 1839, Highgate Cemetery, is the last resting place of many noteworthy figures. This includes Karl Marx, Middlemarch author George Eliot, scientist Michael Faraday, Douglas Adams and Christina Rosetti. It’s divided into two parts, the east and west cemeteries. It is also a nature reserve notable for its extraordinary Gothic atmosphere, with its proliferation of Victorian tombs and steep hillside paths. Guided tours of the West cemetery ? where Michael Fa...
