Places to Visit in North London

Ingla is proud to call North London our home! Learn about some of the places of interest in this part of our capital city.

It’s also home to many of London’s most famous attractions, but also has a big variety of hidden gems that not many people know about. If you’ve ticked Camden Market, London Zoo and Platform 9¾ off your list, here are some other places to check out.

The Parkland Walk – North London is blessed with green spaces (Hampstead Heath, Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill and Clissold Park to name a few) but this unused railroad is one of our favourite places to spot wildlife and stretch our legs. And if you really want to forget that you’re in London, head to Kentish Town City Farm for a taste of rural life!

Forget the West End: North London has some incredible theatre venues which are cheaper and more intimate. The Almeida (Islington), The Kiln (Kilburn), Park Theatre (Finsbury Park), The Gatehouse (Highgate), and Hampstead Theatre (Swiss Cottage) attract famous actors and put on the hottest new plays.

You can’t get more British than pub food, and North London has the best of the best: Sunday roasts at The High Cross (Tottenham), fish n’ chips at Toff’s (Muswell Hill), scotch eggs and pies at Piebury Corner (Holloway) and countless more.

Highgate Cemetery is splendid, spooky and completely fascinating. Most tourists go to the East cemetery to see Karl Marx’s grave, but the West cemetery has some of the finest Victorian gothic relics in the world.

If you’ve done the British Museum, and are curious about niche London history and art, check out Bruce Castle Museum (Tottenham), the Freud Museum, (Hampstead), the Jewish Museum (Camden), ArtsDepot (Finchley) or the Whitewebbs Museum of Transport (Enfield).
