North London is that part of London which is north of Central London and hence north of the River Thames. It comprises several quite distinct areas:

Crouch End is in London.

Wood Green is in London.



Get in

Crouch End

  • Tricky as there is no tube to Crouch End
  • You can take a bus number 91 from Trafalgar Sq. But it takes almost an hour (off peak).
  • Alternatively you can go by tube to Archway and take a connection with bus number 41 to Crouch End. Or a Victoria Line/Picadilly Line train to Finsbury Park, and then the W7 bus will also take you there.
  • There is also a W5 local bus which runs from Sainsbury's on Green Lanes and terminates at the YMCA just down from Crouch End Broadway.

Wood Green

London Underground: Piccadilly Line to Wood Green or Turnpike Lane Tube stations.

National Rail: to Alexandra Palace station. From Central London get the train from London Kings Cross or Moorgate stations.

Bus: Numbers 29, 67, 141 and 243 from Central London, N91 and N29 and the 243 operate at night.


Wood Green

Alexandra Palace is Wood Green's landmark, on a hill overlooking the City of London and the West End. The grand Victorian building was the first place from which the BBC broadcast regular television, but has been gutted by fire on two separate occasions. It now serves as an exhibition and event venue, and is popular for the surrounding Alexandra Park, its boating lake and ice-rink, and its panoramic views over London.


Crouch End

The Kings Head pub has a good comedy night downstairs most nights. The Railway Pub has just been taken over by new management and the whole pub has been renevated.

Wood Green

Alexandra Palace is home to an ice-rink, and there are two cinemas on Wood Green High Road. Also found in Wood Green is the Chocolate Factory, a converted sweets factory now used by local artists; there are regular shows and events here.


Wood Green

Shopping City is the biggest indoor shopping centre in Inner London, and this along with the mile-long High Road contain many High Street chains and independent shops. Shopping City also contains a covered market with a large food section including butchers, fishmongers, fruit and vegetables and international food.


Crouch End

There are plenty of good quality restaurants in Crouch End to choose from.

O's Thai Cafe - good quality reasonably priced Thai food. Buzzy atmosphere.

Florians - A Crouch End favourite. French bistro style.

The Kings Head - Recently redeveloped pub. Trendy crowd, with comedy on a Monday night.

Banners - Global food, good vegetarian options but hard to get into on a weekend.

  • La Bota, 31 Broadway Parade, London N8 9DB, 020 8340 3082. Spanish Tapas Restaurant, very popular

Wood Green

La Kera - South Indian/fusion cooking.[1]
