Where do N22 locals go?

Pitch and Putt, Alexandra Park

Enjoy a round or two with your friends and family and the stunning views of London too!


A truly authentic Greek family restaurant that is very welcoming and with amazing, generous portions.

Alexandra Park

Boating lake, golf course, deer sanctuary - this park has it all!

Alexandra Palace Ice Rink

A fantastic day out for all the family all year round!

The Laboratory Spa & Health Club

A beautiful, airy, bright gym with a spa and a fresh water swimming pool, which means no stinging eyes and great for children! They also put on excellent exercise classes too and there's no minimum contract.

Alexandra Palace

An impressive music venue hosting great bands such as Slayer, to Jack White, to the Prodigy!


North London's best curry house and probably north London's best kept secret. It's a small restaurant and takeaway on Turnpike Lane that prepares freshly made curries!

The Great Northern Railway Tavern

Weekly quiz nights, super beer garden and a stunning building.

The Three Compasses

Modern trendy décor, but underneath it's a classic pub. Friendly atmosphere, super food, and darts and pool at the back.

Ducketts Common

Green space next to Turnpike Lane Station that has amazing basketball courts (the best in North London!), a free outdoor gym and a children's play area.


Cute and funky café with some fun artwork, a real gem.

The Priory Fish Bar

Looks basic but the chips are the best tasting 'classic fish and chip shop chips' in Hornsey. Yum yum.

Green Lanes

A great road full of so many different cuisines that goes on for miles. Great Turkish restaurants!

Victoria Stakes

Perfect pub for dog owners, as it is pet friendly. It makes a great end to a walk around Alexandra Park. Food is amazing too!

Why do you find N22 a great place to live?


"The cuisine in Wood Green is the best in North London. As a Greek/Cypriot living in London, I have found some of the best Greek shops and restaurants in this area. My absolute favourite places are Vrisaki in Myddleton Road and Paneri on High Road. "

March 2016


"Leafy and peaceful, with the magnificent palace and park at its heart, but just minutes from the shopping options of Muswell Hill and Wood Green, or the plentiful bars and cafes of Crouch End. Enjoy ice skating in the palace, a cake at the Grove Café, or just take in the best view in London from the atmospheric vantage point of the world's first television broadcast."

February 2015


"I love vibrant Green Lanes, with an array of Turkish restaurants, variety of shops and the amount of small parks in the area."

"Open spaces, great transport links. Gigs and Farmers Markets on your doorstep!"

"It's right next to Alexandra Palace, convenient for shopping and transport, and still relatively affordable to buy a decent place to live."

December 2014


"I love being surrounded by green spaces and large gardens. I love to be around malls where I can find everything I need. Wood Green is a multicultural neighbourhood, there are several shops from around the world and a wide variety of products. Public transport works very well. The health center is very good. It is a safe neighborhood for walking both day and night. Fruits and vegetables are fresh and quality. The people are ve... more

"Wood Green provides shoppers with a choice of supermarkets including Sainsbury's, Tesco, Morrisons and not to mention M&S Food. There are great clothes shops, hairdressers and Wilkinsons for just about every household product you could ever want. You can commute to Covent Garden in 20 mins. At the same time you can walk up to Ally Pally to see the deer and feel like you are in the countryside. Keep it a secret so price... more
