Interaction with Guests
We are very happy to advise you on making the most of your stay in London.
Muswell Hill Broadway and Fortis Green Road, the main shopping streets, still maintain their historic character with most of the original facades preserved above street level. Some parts have spectacular views over London, and the area is home to a large number of actors, journalists and other media people. There is also a weekly farmers' market at the foot of Muswell Hill in Alexandra Park. The cinema is art deco, built in the 1930s. This area has an abundance of things to keep you entertained and satisfied and all in comfort, safety and style. A great base to explore London.
Close to Alexandra Park and Highgate Woods, with a village atmosphere and mainly Edwardian buildings. Muswell Hill has developed from the staid suburb it was in the 1950s to become fashionable with a host of trendy bars, restaurants, coffee shops and delicatessens.
Muswell Hill is located in the London borough of Haringey.
Haringey is famous for its literary connections such as Sir John Betjeman, who lived in West Hill as a child and also Karl Marx who is buried in nearby Highgate Cemetery. In the Western half of the borough stands Alexandra Palace, the last great Victorian exhibition space in Europe and the birth place of television. The Parkland Walk links Alexandra Palace to Finsbury Park.
London is not so much a city, as the world's biggest village. – Or if not a village, then 33 small cities, each with their own governments, schools, centers, suburbs, and proud sense of identity and history. Each borough has a member of parliament who votes in the national government, and a local council that collects taxes and provides essential services.
There is good transport into central London. Frequent buses stop at the top of our road, going to West End or the City. Nearest underground is Highgate (Zone 3), 10 minutes walk or a two minute bus ride.

We stayed for 8 nights in this lovely flat. It is very clean and comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood, and offers important amenities that help travelers feel at home. At the top of the hill you can easily catch a bus and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Alicia was a gracious host and made sure we had everything we needed. We hope to return again to Muswell Hill.
