Crouch End is a vibrant neighborhood that feels homey and lively at the very same time. Filled to the brim with cafes, bustling people, and plenty of dogs, it feels like its own little city. It's home to many wealthy families and young professionals who are looking for an engaging place to live.
A large percentage of residents work in some sort of creative role, so you'll find a lot of musicians, artists, and other creative types here. This means there are a lot of cultural events throughout the year, including festivals, art exhibitions, and theater. Families are attracted by the great education options since there are fantastic primary schools, as well as a school that caters to children with autism.
Foodies will find a diverse selection of highly rated restaurants and cafes. And pubs line the main streets here so a pint is never more than a few minutes walk away.
With tons of local amenities like supermarkets, bakeries, coffee shops, art galleries, gyms, yoga studios, and butchers, you will never really have to leave this area unless you are going to work.
Crouch End also spoils its residents when it comes to green spaces: you'll have several parks to choose from so there is plenty of room to get outdoors and be active.
