Places Of Interest in North London

Places of Interest in North London If you want to do something other than go shopping and enjoy the range of gastro pubs, then there are a number of places of interest in north London which should provide a cheaper alternative.

You can get two places of interest for the price of one when you go to the London Canal Museum [map], because here you can find out about canals and ice cream under one roof. The main purpose of the museum is to give visitors an insight into the history of London’s canals and how they evolved into what they are today. The English history of Ice cream has found a place here because the museum is housed in a former 19th century ice warehouse where ice cream used to be stored.

Meanwhile Arsenal Museum [map] tells the history of one of London’s greatest football clubs. In the 2003/2004 season they were the first club in 115 years to go through the whole season unbeaten and the museum celebrates this and their other great achievements over the years.

Brother and sister Charles and Mary Lamb are well-known for two reasons, the first for writing books for children including the famous Tales From Shakespeare and the second for Mary’s attack on their parents which had her permanently committed to an asylum until her brother took her in.
Together they’ve left north London with two places of interest, Lamb’s Cottage [map] and All Saints Church [map]. Both located on Church Street, N9, one is where the pair lived and the other is where the two have been laid to rest. As well as being connected to the authors they are also of historic interest in their own right.

Close to Lauderdale House [map] is Highgate Cemetery [map] where English chemist and physicist Michael Faraday is buried as well as political philosopher and social theorist Karl Marx and novelist George Eliot. However in addition to its well known residents Highgate cemetry is also of interest for its history and architecture and guided tours are available throughout the year.

If you’re willing to travel a little outside north London you could find distractions in Enfield. Trent Country Park [map], Myddelton House Gardens [map], Beale Arboretum [map], Whitewebbs Museum of Transport [map] and Capel Manor Gardens [map] are all there to be enjoyed. And in terms of public transport Enfield has three stations (Enfield Town, Enfield Chase and Enfield Lock) all within London’s six travel zones.
