Why do you find N19 a great place to live?
"A friendly community with amazing restaurants, like Stingray and Blue Moon Thai."
"Archway is within walking distance of Hampstead Heath and has great transport links"
"I love living in Tufnell Park as it has lovely local parks, shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as a weekly food market and great local pubs. And it's only a short stroll to Hampstead Heath and you can be in town in 15 minutes."
"I have lived in Upper Holloway for 8 months now; well, since I moved to London from Canada. The nearby streets are lined with late Victorian houses which adds to the history of the area. I really like the place, my residential street is very quiet, and it's only 4 minutes walk from Holloway Road and 10 minutes from Archway station, very convenient for commuting to job, going out in trendy Upper Street or buzzing West End. ... more
