"Sir Francis Bacon, in proving his theory that meat could be preserved by keeping it cold, plucked a chicken and stuffed it with snow. Unfortunately, he caught pneumonia from the experiment and died shortly after, yet it is sightings of a ghostly chicken that have been reported in the Highgate area."

Highgate High Street has an amazing selection of upmarket shops, cafes and restaurants - I love being in the centre of them all!

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