Hornsey

Your All In London guide to Hornsey

The first records mentioning Horney date back to the 13th century (the tower that stands on the high street was constructed around this time) however as with most other London districts the area didn’t start to develop until the mid-19th century. Hornsey’s boundaries are a little blurry, but they are roughly situated between Alexandra Park, Crouch End and Turnpike Lane. The residential streets feature a mixture of purpose built council housing, modern developments and Victorian terraces, while Hornsey High Street has supermarkets, shops and a few interesting restaurants. Priory Park is the area’s main green space, having even won the Green Flag award on several occasions for its maintenance and sustainability.
