Alexandra Palace

An impressive music venue hosting great bands such as Slayer, to Jack White, to the Prodigy!

The John Baird

Real ales, a beer garden and quiz nights on a Thursday and Sunday are why I love going to this local boozer!

The Flower Seller

This local florist is the perfect place to pick up flowers for that special someone in your life...

The Scullery Cookshop

Any cooks dream, this shop stocks everything from everyday items to the more obscure things the recipe books demand!

Planet Organic

The most amazing shop that stocks literally every organic food you can imagine, as well as a huge range of beauty, health and baby products. The store is always immaculate, there are loads of helpful staff around and best of all, there is a juice bar and coffee shop too.


A delicious American-style restaurant serving mouth-watering chicken dishes. The buttermilk chicken made using their secret recipe is awesome!


Amazing quality and cheap Mediterranean/Cypriot food. The lamb parcels and breakfasts are yummy!


Best chippy in North London, or even the whole of London! You can even sit in too.


Serving tasty pick and mix pasta dishes, sandwiches and salads, I sometimes grab my lunch from here.


Not your typical O'Neill's with its setting in a converted church. It still has its original features and a lively atmosphere at the weekend.

From firm favourites to more unusual tastes, this cheese shop is a foodies dream!

A beautiful, airy, bright gym with a spa and a fresh water swimming pool, which means no stinging eyes and great for children! They also put on excellent exercise classes too and there's no minimum contract.
