North London is the northern region of England’s capital city. By some measures, it is the entire area north of the River Thames, which essentially divides Greater London into two halves, running east-west through the city. This definition is used by the Boundary Commission and means that North London makes up nearly two thirds of the entire city. By the Boundary Commission’s map, North London includes the City of London and all its historic areas, the East and West End and most of the Tube. According to this definition, this large section of the city includes not only the City of London, but a number of London boroughs as well. Those boroughs are Barking and Dagenham, Brent, Camden, Barnet, Enfield, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Haringey, Hackney, Harrow, Hillingdon, Havering, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Redbridge, Newham, Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets and Westminster. Although the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames falls on both sides of the River, it is considered part of South London by the Boundary Commission.
Within North London, there are a number of boroughs that are considered to be Inner London, namely Kensington and Chelsea, Islington, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hackney, Camden, Westminster and Tower Hamlets. The rest are part of Outer London. These designations were made in 1965 and still stand today. But North London doesn’t only refer to the part of the city that lies north of the River Thames. It is also the name given to one of the sub regions in the London Plan. The North London sub region has existed since 2004, even though the boundaries changed slightly when the sub regions were re-designated in 2008. Originally, the North London sub region has four boroughs lying within its boundaries: Enfield, Barnet, Haringey and Waltham Forest. But today, Camden, Islington and Hackney have been added to the list of boroughs that lie within the North London sub region, bringing the total to seven. More than one million people call this sub region home.
The following postcode areas are included in North London (the sub region): N1, N2, N3, N4, N5, N6, N7, N8, N9, N10, N11, N12, N13, N14, N15, N16, N17, N18, N19, N20 and N21. This interesting area also has a diverse mix of housing, ranging from budget to expensive The areas that are most affordable are found in the N11 and N13 postcode areas, including Whetstone. Tottenham and Edmonton are slightly more expensive, though still quite affordable. Stoke Newington, Finchley, Highgate, Southgate and Holloway are a step up in terms of home prices and Islington, Finsbury Park, Muswell Hill, Totteridge and Crouch End make up the sub regions most expensive housing, though it is not the priciest in the city by any means.
There’s plenty to do in North London, especially if you consider it the larger half of the city, which includes the City of London and the East and West Ends. That means, theatre, shopping, dining, music, museums and historical sites galore. Even if you narrow the definition to just include the boroughs of the sub region, there are plenty of things to do with the kids and the whole family. There are plenty of parks and gardens, lots of historic buildings, a number of art galleries and, of course, those museums. You’ll find a great mix of fine dining and budget eats, depending on which neighbourhood you are in, but rest assured that you can find almost anything in North London.
When you have settled on your move out date, or even the week that you would like to be moving, you can go ahead and book your removal vehicle. Depending on the size of your home and the number of large furniture items you are moving, you may need a full-size moving lorry. But if you are living in a one-bedroom flat and you don’t have much stuff, you might be able to get the job done with just a man with a van. Think of the savings!. Another great way to save is to donate or sell a lot of unwanted items prior to your move – you’ll need fewer packing materials that way and you will spend less time lifting and hauling boxes. You can rent a smaller storage unit and reap the benefits of a smaller moving crew, all leading to a smaller bill in the end. Finding the perfect place to live is the hard part. You have to like the neighbourhood, the flat, the community, etc. But finding the perfect moving company to get you there is easy, just dial 02087 467 129 anytime!
