  WHAT’S LIVING IN Seven Sisters LIKE?

If you are looking for a quiet, diverse area then look no further than Seven Sisters. There are almost 200 languages spoken here.

Many people decide on Seven Sisters because it is an affordable place to live. Rental prices in particular are great for those who want to get in to the City quickly but can't afford some of the nicer neighborhoods in London. You’ll pay more the closer you are to Seven Sisters Road, which is where all of the (limited) action is. As you move away from this thoroughfare you’ll find a lot more quiet and cheaper prices.

One of the reasons this neighborhood is so affordable is due to its above average crime rate. Most people who live in Seven Sisters never have any issues, but you should be smart about you walk at night. However, it's seeing a lot of investment from the government and is on an inevitable path to gentrification. 

There aren't a ton of restaurants and you'll mostly find fast food places. Two lonely pubs provide the only nightlife. 

The indoor market next to the Tube station is a popular place to find anything from beauty products to food stalls. If you are a coffee lover, look no further: the large Latino population some of the best coffee around. That quality continues into the food as well, with a lot of hidden spots offering delicious cuisine from cultures all of the world.

Seven Sisters is bordered on the north by Tottenham, on the east by Tottenham Hale, on the south by South Tottenham, and on the west by Harringay.
