Steeped in history, Highgate is one of North London's most romantic and desirable neighbourhoods. An important thoroughfare on the post route north from London, this was where the legendary highwayman, Dick Turpin, held sway./

The area takes its name from Highgate Village, which sits at the top of Highgate Hill, with the fabled Highgate Cemetery and the prestigious Highgate private school each just a short walk from a vibrant array of shops and restaurants./

We deal mainly with the east side of Highgate, and in particular with the area between Highgate Hill and Archway Road./
