"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."

Frank

"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
