Things we love about Muswell Hill: it boasts majestic views across Crouch End and London, there’s magical woodland as far as the eye can see (a special shout out to the Parkland Walk: 4.5 miles of overgrown green trail crossing disused railway arches), Ally Pally is only a hop, skip and jump away, and everyone seems to have at least one dog. Things we don’t love about Muswell Hill: it was once home to one of London’s most notorious serial killers... and, well, that’s about it. It’s a perfect mix of family-friendly spots, boho-chic shops and old-fashioned boozers – something for just about everyone, in other words. Oh, and did we mention the cheese shop?
