Best Areas to Live North London

Popular with families and young professionals alike, there’s something to suit everyone in North London. With a population just short of a million, North London is a thriving multicultural area that appeals not only to those searching for a bustling inner-city rental, but also those dreaming of a calmer small town feel.

Read our guide to the best areas to live in North London, to help you narrow down your search for your next buy-to-let property.

Finsbury Park

Located within the three boroughs of Haringey, Islington and Hackney, Finsbury Park has seen significant regeneration over recent years and is now a popular place for both families and young professionals due to its many revamped cafes, restaurants, and bars. Only 10 minutes way from Central London, its most popular feature is the 115-acre park that’s home to football pitches, tennis courts, and a boating lake within its grounds.


Islington is a largely residential, inner-city district located within the borough of the same name. It boasts fantastic transport links, with multiple underground lines connecting you to the city center in a matter of minutes. There is a diverse range of properties to choose from, from the renovated Victorian and Georgian townhouses to the modern and affordable apartments located along Regent’s Canal. Upper Street is the hub of this area, with numerous bars, restaurants, and independent shops – making residents never short ofthings to see and do.


Renowned for its iconic markets and canals, Camden is well-established as one of North London’s liveliest neighborhoods with Camden Lock at its heart, it’s home to a trendy mix of shops, bars and restaurants. Much like the electric markets, Camden boasts a wide range of properties from wealthy townhouses to former council houses, to modern flats. With some of the best transport links, and only a 20 minute walk to Kings Cross, Camden is the perfect location for those who want to be centrally located whilst living in an area that has a rich history and a unique charm.


Located in the borough of Camden, Hampstead is one of the most picturesque and wealthiest areas in North London. Properties match the green surroundings with plenty of Georgian and Edwardian houses, which are typically larger in size and so are perfect for families. The wealth that exists in the area has allowed independent shops, cafes, grocers, and bakers to flourish creating a close knit community feel. Perhaps the main attraction to this area is Hampstead Heath, an 800 acre green space boasting some of the best views of Central London.
