Guide To Tottenham
Tottenham is one of London’s last great, non-gentrified secrets. With a rich cultural diversity, unrivalled transport links, and an ambitious multi-million-pound regeneration programme in full flow, Tottenham is now becoming the play to be.
Tottenham Market opened on Tottenham Green, running every Sunday from 11-4. It’s worth stopping by just to sample the goods at Wildes Cheese, a small, locally based award winning independent cheese making company.
Bruce Grove Castle is an impressive Grade 1 listed Manor, with surrounding beautiful parks and garden. It has an in-house café, perfect for stopping by for a refuel if you visit one of the regular vintage fairs. If you want to escape the hustle and experience some of Tottenham’s outdoor pursuits, then head to Tottenham Marshes. A glorious series of interconnected waterways, reservoirs and reserves, the area is flourishing with flora and fauna.
Take a stroll here off the beaten track and you could spot Kingfishers, Skylarks or Owls along the banks of the picturesque River Lea. It’s a far cry from Tottenham’s mistaken rough-and-tumble reputation, and a welcome world away from the bustle of London’s perpetually busy thoroughfare.
