Like much of North London Tufnell Park was a rural area until the railways came in the middle of the 19th century. Unlike neighbouring areas Tufnell Park was spared disruption as most lines passed through the area in tunnels, and it’s this element of planning that has helped keep Tufnell Park a relatively quiet area whilst also benefiting from its proximity to the hubbub of neighbouring Kentish Town, Archway and Holloway.
We’ve found that Tufnell Park is increasingly popular with families who are drawn to the great transport links, excellent schools and local community. It has the seal of approval from celebrities too, with numerous actors, journalists and politicians living in the area. Those looking closely at schools will find plenty of excellent nurseries, state schools and private schools in the area.
It’s a quiet neighbourhood with a thriving local high street where you can find an organic independent butcher, fishmonger and bakery. Nearby Fortess Road is home to numerous cafes and eateries as well as a gym, beauty salon, dentist, GP, hairdresser and a Sainsbury’s Local. Families are very well catered for; Bear and Wolf café has a separate kids play room and Talacre Centre in Kentish Town offer soft play and a range of classes.
