Highgate is a charming area of north London found just next door to the wide open spaces of Hampstead Heath. A rather distinguished part of the capital, Highgate has attracted an A-list array of residents, probably due to its wonderful village like vibe and superb location. It is home to the famous Highgate Cemetery, the final resting place for historic figures such as Karl Marx, meaning that the area also attracts a good deal of visitors. The leafy village boasts a wonderful selection of great restaurants and cafes, perfect after a wander around the smattering of independent boutiques and shops. If you love a good gastro pub then Highgate is the place to head, where top notch pub menus and fantastic ales the order of the day.
