Property Types & Architecture
Off the main roads and shopping streets there are many residential estates, predominantly with Victorian terraced housing.
Shopping & Entertainment
There is a large main High street with all the expected big-name stores and supermarkets, mixed in with many local fashion and budget shops. Off the main road you will find smaller, local shops including butchers, cafes, an independent bookshop, and many take-aways.
At the top of the high street there is a choice of cinemas offering mainstream films.

Parks & Commons
In between the housing estates are a few small greens and recreational grounds. For a larger park, Alexandra Palace is only a short walk, or very short bus ride away.
