Guide To Wood Green

Our area guide to Wood Green gives you a quick overview of the neighbourhood from its properties, public parks, local schools, council tax, and public transport links to shopping and dining out.

The area is diverse, mainly with an ethnic population. It is a popular area for students and sharers and those on a budget.
In between the housing estates are a few small greens and recreational grounds. For a larger park, Alexandra Palace is only a short walk, or very short bus ride away.

There is a large main High street with all the expected big-name stores and supermarkets, mixed in with many local fashions and budget shops. Off the main road, you will find smaller, local shops including butchers, cafes, an independent bookshop, and many takeaways.

At the top of the high street, there is a choice of cinemas offering mainstream films.

Off the main roads and shopping streets, there are many residential estates, predominantly with Victorian terraced housing.
