Cost of accommodation
Haringey offers a wide range of affordable housing and flat shares where you can rent a room for less than £400 per calendar month, which is ideal for someone newly arriving to the UK.
Haringey lies mostly within zone 3 which offers very cheap travel into London with extremely strong transport links with the Piccadilly, Victoria, overground and National Rail services which makes sightseeing and traveling to other parts of the UK cheap and convenient.
Vibe, type of people that live there
Haringey is ethnically diverse with an estimated 193 languages spoken there and over 35 per cent of people coming from ethnic minority backgrounds. Researchers believe that south Tottenham is one of the most ethnically diverse areas in Western Europe. Areas such as Crouch End, Muswell Hill and Highgate are among the wealthiest in the country.
The social side to Haringey offers a wide range of opportunities. With hundreds of affordable gyms and even more clubs to join, meeting new people in Haringey is easily accessible! There are over five leisure centres in the borough alone. A colleague of ours who migrated from Australia and now lives in Haringey said “Haringey has such a strong community feel to it, I love it there and I will live there for the rest of my life”. There are also many bars, pubs and clubs to visit for the night life aspect, where drinks are reasonably priced and you can always find a place with the right scene for your personality!
Why choose Haringey?
From the high vantage points at leafy Muswell Hill in the west, you can enjoy spectacular views over London or take a stroll along the desirable streets and shops of the area. Highgate is also lovely and well worth a visit; head towards Waterlow Park from where you can go on to Highgate Cemetery which is a fascinating place to spend a couple of hours. The commute to London is cheap and efficient and the borough offers a wide range of opportunities for teachers.
My favourite place to eat in Harringay is Gökyüzü, for authentic Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine. The best place to visit has to be Alexandra Palace – an iconic North London venue where there’s always something happening, plus the best panoramic views of London.
