The local area guide to living in Crouch End

Crouch End lies in a small valley between Hornsey, Muswell Hill and Wood Green to the north, and Finsbury Park and Archway to the south. In the Borough of Haringey, North London, Crouch End lies along what used to be a common route north from London in medieval times. The area only experienced development from around 1880, but from then on grew rapidly into a prosperous suburb surrounded by seven railway stations. Public parks and new roads were established, and comfortable middle class houses replaced some of the larger, rural style homes.

The architecture of Crouch End today is still characterised by a mixture of period Victorian and Edwardian buildings arranged among green spaces, playing fields and beautiful wooded areas. The bustling centre of the neighbourhood features a clock tower and the listed Art Deco Hornsey Town Hall. Despite its location in North London, this area isn’t directly accessible via the London Underground, which tends to distance it a bit from the rest of the bustling capital.

Information about the local residents

Crouch End is home to around 12,000 people. Compared to the wider Borough of Haringey, the town has a high proportion of 25 to 44 year olds. That’s because the area has become increasingly popular with media and entertainment professionals and a ‘bohemian’ crowd. Arts and crafts events are common here. One such notable event was the ‘Guerilla Bunting’ campaign in 2013, which aimed to cover the town in decorative bunting.

Nearly 35% of properties are owned by mortgage, and around 20% of residents own their property outright. Approximately 60% of people in the area are educated to degree level or higher. Real estate, renting and associated businesses account for 28% of employment in the town.

Nearby schools

Primary schools in Crouch End are well-reputed and high performing. They include Rokesley Infant and Junior School, Coleridge Primary School, St Gildas’ RC School and Weston Park Primary School.

There are two secondary schools in the town: Hornsey School for Girls, an international school offering education through sixth form, and Highgate Wood School, an arts college that also includes a sixth form college.

For higher education and further learning, Crouch End Community College of Arts & Design offers a range of short-courses including web and graphic design, video production, film making and photography, and London’s excellent universities are all within easy reach.

Getting around

A good bus network is the only means of public transport connecting Crouch End to London at large, though the Finsbury Park Tube station is not too far, offering access to the West End via the Piccadilly and Victoria lines, as does Wood Green station. Crouch Hill Overground Station is just south of town in Islington, providing access to North London along the Barking and Gospel Oak line. A night bus also runs in the area. Gatwick, Heathrow and London City Airport are all within reach for long-distance travel.

Local shops

Crouch End offers a wide range of shops, from small independent designer clothing and homeware boutiques to big and popular national retailers. Old-fashioned high street shopping includes the long-standing bakery Dunn’s, two butchers’, a fishmonger and a greengrocer’s. Crouch End’s Broadway is the go-to spot for upmarket restaurants, cafés, gastro pubs and wine bars, where many establishments expand outward with patios along the street, reminiscent of the classic European style.

A range of public parks including Priory Park and Alexandra Park are present at the neighbourhood’s northern boundary, and a local nature reserve, Parkland Walk, lies on a disused railway line. Highgate Wood and Queen’s Wood offer beautiful, tranquil country walks, and you can also enjoy an indoor swimming pool and a heated outdoor lido at the Park Road Leisure Centre.
