North London is one of the oldest residential districts in London, a mixture of leafy suburban streets and neighbourhoods with a more urban vibe. Areas like Finsbury Park and King’s Cross have undergone renaissance in recent years, and are gradually being transformed by exciting new build developments that offer worthwhile London property investment opportunities.
The north London postcode area forms a triangle, with Kings Cross and Islington at its most southerly tip, moving up through areas such as Highgate, Finsbury Park, Muswell Hill and Finchley to reach Whetstone, Totteridge, Tufnell Park, Southgate and Edmonton at its northern boundary.
