Where do Tufnell Park locals go?


The best European restaurant in London serving gluten free alternatives and delicious pizzas!

Dirty Burger

Really good burgers, brilliant milkshakes and onion rings from a hidden shack at the back of Pizza East.

The Bull & Last

A gastro pub with substantial breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as a large selection of beers and ales.

The Lord Stanley

Just off Camden Road, this pub does the best sausage and mash!


A fantastic addition to the area, I love this Italian deli and café because of its tasty food and personable service.

Kentish Town Sports Centre

Recently renovated, this leisure centre set in a historic Grade II listed building has a swimming pool and a gym.

Bistro Laz

A rustic Mediterranean restaurant open from 7am! Grab breakfast in the morning and more traditional Middle-Eastern fare in the evening.

Anima e Cuore

From the outside, Anima e Cuore looks like a gelateria and café, but this teeny tiny restaurant serves amazing Italian food at a very reasonable price. The menu is read by the waiters and changed daily. It books up very fast and it's BYOB!

Emirates Stadium

There is only one team in North London! A good day out....

Trattoria Terra

Beautiful little Italian with fantastic food and wine, a welcoming atmosphere and very reasonable prices.

Highgate Bathing Ponds

Tucked away just off Millfield Lane, it is a lovely quiet place to go and relax and walk - and even better when it is sunny!


Serving organic food and drink ideal for a quick brunch. Wholesome meals, delicious salads and a variety of smoothies that are nice too.

Camden Market

Wandering through one of the many stalls in Camden Market, there's always something to catch the eye!


A restaurant/bar/club serving pan-Asian food cooked by the amazing chef Ian Pengelley. You can dine and enjoy the bar area at the same time.

Shaka Zulu

A little taste of Africa. Great ambience, incredible South African Zulu statues and if that doesn't win you over, the all day 2-4-1 cocktails will!

  1. About Tufnell Park

    Tufnell Park is an area of north London which straddles the border of the London Borough of Islington and the London Borough of Camden. Tufnell Park Road runs along the line of an old Roman road which stretches from the Roman camp beneath Barclays Bank on Holloway Road up Dartmouth Hill and over Hampstead Heath. Tufnell Park was more fortunate than several of its neighbours, whereas roads and railway lines were sliced through Kentish Town and Camden in the 19th century, they mostly passed through Tufnell Park in tunnel. The nearest London Underground station is Tufnell Park on the Northern Line.
