Haringey - the place
But working here isn’t just about the sense of fulfilment you’ll get from your work – Haringey the place has a huge amount to offer. Not only do our fantastic transport connections mean we are just minutes away from central London, there is so much to do in the borough itself. Haringey buzzes with entertainment, attitude, artistic and cultural life – through its pubs, clubs, cinemas, theatres, arts centres, community groups and even festivals.
A tour through the borough reveals how much is on offer. Go west where you can sample village life in Highgate; check out the country’s leading circus venue at Jacksons Lane Arts Centre; browse the independent shops in Muswell Hill, or tuck into a meal at one of Crouch End’s countless international restaurants. Hop on a bus to the legendary Alexandra Palace – the birthplace of the BBC – and enjoy breath-taking views of London from the terrace, or enjoy a gig, family event, exhibition or sports showcase in the Palace itself.
Heading into Green Lanes will bring you to one of London’s liveliest and most culturally diverse neighbourhoods, famed for its tremendous array of restaurants – including award-wining kebab houses – and late-night international grocers. At Wood Green, where major regeneration plans are starting to take shape, you can do a spot of shopping or catch a blockbuster at one of two major cinemas.
A trip to Tottenham will bring you to some of the most exciting parts of the capital, where the benefits of investment are already starting to show at the revamped Tottenham Green and the soon-to-be-completed Spurs stadium development.
And if you need to take a break from it all, Haringey is home to no fewer than 25 Green Flag Award winning parks.
