NFT London Highgate

Highgate

On the cusp of north London you'll find the little suburban gem that is Highgate. Hemmed in by parks, woods and a golf course, the area is an escapist paradise from the chaos of the city, and its well-heeled residents' plush fur is surprisingly--and pleasantly--soft to the touch. Pop into boutique independent shops like Le Chocolatier before heading over to Highgate Woods with a bottle to enjoy live jazz during the summer.

Lauderdale House
Highgate High Street has got two of those crap chain cafes where they sell dishwater coffee exclusively in large bucket, or small bucket sizes, so they can justify the ridiculous price tag. Luckily, walking up Highgate Hill, before you get to those dismal imitations of cafe culture, you come across the glorious Lauderdale House. A mini-stately home that once housed King Charles II's bit-on-the-side, comic actress and general ho-a-la-mode Nell Gwyne, it backs on to one of the most beautiful green spaces in London, Waterlow Park. It's also an arts centre and an occasional gallery. Forget all that though. They have a cafe, which sells coffee that actually tastes nice, as well as delicious Pecan Pie.
