Highgate perfect for suburban commuters

Highgate could offer a convenient and practical option for those having to work in London every day.

The area has its own London Underground station on the Northern Line as well as being close to Archway tube so travellers can pick the most convenient route.

The suburb manages to balance the easier journey to the centre with great and interesting scenery, especially its gothic architecture so there are lots of unique property for sale in Highgate.

During the warmer months, Highgate can be one of the most attractive places in London to live, with taking walks and enjoining picnics on Hampstead Heath popular among the many families that live the area.

Its positioning at the top of a hill also makes for a fantastic view across the city on clear days and is a great place to take relax.

The area also offers a wide range of shops and other amenities such as pubs and restaurants so people will not always have to travel into central London -this means there has been a recent growth in people making Highgate their home.

For those who enjoy a tipple, it is home to the London Brewing Company, a microbrewery based at The Bull pub in North Hill. The brewery is one of more than 50 small scale operations that have launched in the city in recent years and the Highgate one has been producing local beers since 2011.

For those looking for a bit of an historic interest, Highgate is also home to a famous Victorian cemetery, which is the final resting place of Karl Marx, Michael Faraday and George Elliot. There are regular guided tours of the cemetery for those who fancy finding out more about its famous residents.

Highgate also has a conservation society and a number of other local clubs and events so there is a strong sense of community - all within easy reach of the centre of the capital.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801698473-ADNFCR
