This little pocket of North London features the best independent shops and cafés, including: La Fromagerie, Bournes Fishmonger and Godfreys Butcher. Perfect for those who want to buy local and independent.
This corner of north-east London offers wonderfully unique local markets where residents can buy fresh flowers, antiques, artisan baked goods and organic produce. Every Saturday one can visit Broadway Market, and every Sunday locals can choose to wander to either Columbia Road or Victoria Park markets.
If you would prefer to hit the high street for your shopping, then there are plenty of homeware and fashion boutiques in your neighbourhood. Venture down to Holloway Road and you can find a vast selection of vintage shops, along with more traditional high street favourites. Take a short walk to Harringay Green Lanes to find large department stores with all manner of shopping facilities available, everything to fit your needs.
Whether you love an early-morning jog, weekend sailing session or simply strolling in the fresh air, a home at Heron Quarter offers endless opportunities to enjoy an active lifestyle. Try water sports at the West Reservoir, including sailing, kayaking and canoeing. Or if swimming is more your style, head to the London Fields Lido where the 50m Olympic size swimming pool is open all year round.
Out of water, Woodberry Down’s vast landscaped grounds offer plenty of spaces for walking, running and cycling, the trim trail is sure to get your blood pumping. If you prefer to exercise inside, there is a 24 hour gym just a few minutes’ walk from Heron Quarter.
