What do you love about N13?

Why do you find N13 a great place to live?


"Palmers Green is blessed with a number of sizeable and interesting parks, linked to former stately homes, and a growing number of restaurants and cafes. One that has a lot of character is Baskervilles on a tree-lined street overlooking the popular Broomfield Park. The train ststion with trains direct to Moorgate (25 mins) will soon see a cafe reopening, and one hopes the resumption of gallery and musical events"

February 2015


"Palmers Green is great for young families and for a busy high street it maintains a village community feel. My kids go to the great local school and play in the many local parks. There are lots of active community groups making this a great place to live."

Turtle Tots-The Brook

The Brook
Hello, we are Lisa & Caroline, two graduates who rose to Director level at large organisations within the fashion world. Having always loved swimming, we didn't think twice when the opportunity arose for us to be part of the Turtle Tots family and deliver our service to London. Coming from a world that was very strategic, we knew that our next goal would be life changing and needed to be something more personal and rewarding. We now run Turtle Tums Aqua Natal Yoga and Turtle Tots Baby and Toddler swimming classes across North London. We were inspired by Turtle Tots and the thought of providing a lifelong skill, as well as being able to influence the beginnings of a healthy start to life, whilst instilling water and safety confidence for both parent and child.
