Tottenham Guide

Your All In London guide to Tottenham

Tottenham’s bad reputation precedes it, as the area’s high crime rate and gang activities have been widely reported in the news. It is also famous for the 1985 riots, when the black community, sufficiently irked by police brutality took to the streets, resulting in the death of one policeman and dozens of injured. Tottenham is one of the poorest areas in the UK, as well as having the highest rate of unemployment in London, however before the railways arrived in the 19th century bringing with them cheap housing to accommodate workers, Tottenham was a well-to-do, upper middle class suburb. On the plus side, the area’s diversity means there is a wide selection of Greek, Caribbean and Turkish eateries and grocery stores; in fact researchers at the University College London claim South Tottenham is the most ethnically diverse district in Western Europe.
