Location description from owner
The England region
London is a leading global city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. It is the world's leading financial centre alongside New York City and has the fifth -or sixth largest metropolitan area GDP in the world depending on measurement. London has been described as a world cultural capital.It is the world's most-visited city measured by international arrivals and has the world's largest city airport system measured by passenger traffic. London's 43 universities form the largest concentration of higher education in Europe. In 2012 London became the first city to host the modern Summer Olympic Games three times.
Turnpike Lane is a busy cosmopolitan shopping street and an important thoroughfare for car traffic. Speciality shops remain open until late at night. By evening there are some restaurants, including Malaysian, Greek, Indian, Kurdish, Turkish, Chinese, Thai, Lebanese, and continental as well as smaller cafés catering to all budgets.
Finsbury Park nearby provides a large green space in central north London. It has a mix of open ground, formal gardens, avenues of mature trees and an arboretum area with a mix of more unusual trees. There is also a lake, a children's play areas, a cafe and an art exhibition space.
Sports facilities in the park include football pitches, a bowling green, an athletics stadium, and tennis and basketball courts. Unusually for London, the park hosts two facilities for "American" sports: an American football field, and diamonds for softball and baseball
Wood Green is a busy urban activity centre with a sizeable shopping area with two cinemas, bars, nightclubs, numerous restaurants and cafes and a shopping area, The Mall, close to the underground station. The High Road, the main shopping spine, is part of Green Lanes and stretches from the Wood Green tube station to the next stop on the Piccadilly Line, Turnpike Lane, and is lined with shops along its route.
Also close to the apartment is Alexandra Park and Highgate Woods, in Muswell Hill neighbourhood, which is mainly Edwardian north London suburb. Muswell Hill Broadway and Fortis Green Road, the main shopping streets, still maintain their historic character with most of the original facades preserved above street level. The area has a synagogue and four churches, one of which has been converted into a bar. Some parts have very clear views over London.
Finally Alexandra Park is split between hilly terrain and flat ground. It is adjacent to Hornsey, Muswell Hill and Wood Green. It is dominated by Alexandra Palace. From 1936 to 1981, the BBC transmitted TV progammes from a tall mast built onto one of the towers of the palace. In 1980, most of the palace was gutted by a huge fire. The building has since been restored and is now a conference and exhibition centre.
The vast, tree-lined sloping hill has wide views over London. On a clear day, the Crystal Palace Transmitter on the far south-east side of London is visible.

“This home feels lovely.”
We stayed at Ana's home for a few days while taking my mum on a short break. There are so many nice touches in Ana's home that it is perfect to come back to after a busy day's sight seeing. My mum had the beautiful bedroom with the balcony. The house is so quiet that we all slept well. In the morning we sat in the kitchen planning our day, plenty of room to eat and spread out the tourist brochures. The house is so handy for the underground, a real bonus. Ana the owner was great to deal with, a very helpful and friendly lady. We will definitely use her home again.
Sólo tenemos palabras de agradecimiento para Ana quien nos trató siempre con alta calidez, respeto y consideración. La propiedad es altamente recomendable pues no sólo es cálida, amplia y acogedora si no que además cuenta con todo lo necesario para pasar unos días inolvidables en Londres, en un barrio cómodo, seguro, tranquilo y muy bien ubicado, cerca del undergroun para llegar desde allí a todas partes sin problemas, incluso de noche. Sin dudas, la elegiría nuevamente si volvemos a Londres, una y otra vez. Gracias, Ana Moll por toda tu buena onda, ayuda y recomendaciones turísticas que nos fueron de valorable utilidad. No dejen de consultarla. Gracias y hasta pronto!
