Peeking out from behind the trees in Waterlow Park is an impressive view of London.

About Archway

Archway is an area of north London in the London Borough of Islington. The name derives from the arch built between Highgate and Hornsey in 1896. A tunnel was originally planned for the Highgate bypass (to join the Great North Road by avoiding the steep Highgate Hill road and narrow roads of Highgate village) but this failed due to repeated collapses. It is said that it was at Archway that Dick Whittington heard the Bow Bells ringing and returned back to London.
