Muswell Hill: A scenic and pleasant place to live

Muswell Hill: A scenic and pleasant place to livePeople seeking flats to rent in Muswell Hill will find that the area offers one of the most pleasant, scenic and relaxed locations in London to live, providing a picturesque location and plenty of local attractions.

Muswell Hill is located in the borough of Haringey and has a history dating back to the 12th century, when it was home to an order of nuns and named after a mossy local spring or well.

Over the centuries, the area developed into a slowly growing village, though it was not until the 19th century that significant development began to take place at Muswell Hill, transforming it into an attractive new suburb that offered great appeal to middle-class residents.

These are qualities that have been retained by the region to this day, with 21st-century Muswell Hill having developed a reputation as a desirable place to live thanks to its Edwardian architecture, leafy terraces, high-class shops and strong community spirit.

People living in the area can benefit from some of the best local retail opportunities in the capital, as the area offers a diverse selection of independent and big-name shops, including bookstores, toy outlets, art vendors, shopping centres and clothes sellers.

Similarly, those seeking a bite to eat will be able to choose from a wide array of different types of cuisine and dining experiences, including restaurants, cafes, delicatessens, restaurants, wine bars and food halls.

Meanwhile, those with an interest in culture will also find themselves well-catered for in Muswell Hill thanks to its variety of venues and places of interest, the best-known of which is the iconic Alexandra Palace.

Known colloquially as "Ally Pally", the site is known as the People's Palace and has acted as a centre for music, sport and events since the late 1800s, hosting regular celebrations, concerts and shows.

Located within 196 acres of stunning parkland, its grounds include amenities such as a pub and restaurant, a golf course and a boating lake, as well as parking space for around 1,500 visitors.

It is also one of the areas that takes fullest advantage of Muswell Hill's scenic hilltop location, offering some of the most bracing panoramic views across the capital that can be found in the suburb.

Elsewhere, Muswell Hill is also home to the New London Performing Arts Centre, one of the capital's leading facilities for education in the entertainment sector, offering regular performances and well-regarded theatre courses.

Besides its appeal to leisure seekers, the suburb is also well catered-for in terms of essential facilities for residents, with leading schools including the St Martin of Porres RC Primary, Muswell Hill Junior School, Highgate School and Fortismere School.

Local public transport links are also well-developed, with the Highgate, Bounds Green and Finsbury Park stations all located within 15 minutes' bus ride of the area.

Such benefits make Muswell Hill one of the most desirable places to find accommodation in London, offering plenty to appeal to those wishing to live in a culturally rich, varied and thriving community.
