An expansive, up-and-coming area, Tottenham might just be the last place to find real value for money in North London. Best known for its association with Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the area’s recent regeneration and terrific transport links has seen it spike in popularity with first-time buyers. Split between N15 covering South Tottenham and N17 of North Tottenham, the area has traditionally been characterised by Victorian terraces, of which many have been converted into flats. There are also a number of attractive conservation areas, in particular the Tower Gardens Estate between Lordship Lane and Henningham and Gospatrick Roads. However, largely a result of Spurs’ new stadium, there have been thousands of new homes built in the last 5 years, offering even more availability to those looking to move to the area.
On top of that, Tottenham offers a great variety of schools, excellent transport links to the rest of the city, Lee Valley Leisure, the largest indoor and outdoor athletics facility serving London and the South East of England, all the while bordering some of North London’s most popular boroughs. With prices highly unlikely to stop rising, Tottenham looks to be a smart choice for any buyer.
Tottenham’s strong multicultural population, including one of the largest and most significant populations of Afro-Caribbean people, and its slow immigration of Colombians, Albanians, Kurds, Turkish and Greek-Cypriots, Irish, Portuguese, Poles and Jews is visible throughout, especially in the busy High Road lined with local shops, restaurants and cafes, displaying cuisines and produce from all over the world.
Seven Sisters and Tottenham Hale Tube are on the Victoria line, while Turnpike Lane is on the Piccadilly line, all in Zone 3.
Tottenham Hale, Bruce Grove and White Hart Lane Stations, all in Zone 3, have trains to Liverpool Street — the fastest link being from Tottenham Hale at only 15 minutes.
Tottenham is well served by London Buses routes: 41, 67, 73, 76, 106, 123, 149, 192, 230, 243, 259, 279, 318, 341, 349, 476 and W4.

The popular Tottenham cake, a sponge cake baked in large metal trays covered either in pink icing or jam, derives from the area. The pink colouring was derived from mulberries found growing at the Tottenham Friends burial ground.
