Stroll In Highgate

A Saturday stroll through lovely historical Highgate village

Highgate exists in a kind of splendid isolation and is ‘one of London’s best kept secrets’ (Rough Guide). Known for inspiring some of Charles Dickens's most famous works, strict planning laws maintain the character of this picturesque village. Everything remains as it was when world-renowned artists, dashing highwaymen and political revolutionaries used to drink in its pubs, though the quaint cottages are now owned by today’s rich and famous. Come see the views from Waterlow Park and of course Highgate's atmospheric Victorian cemetery, inspiration to writers ranging from Bram Stoker to Neil Gaimon, the resting place of many an interesting personality, and fountain of many a quirky story! Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
