Northwest London

Nestled in the leafy north London, Totteridge stands out as one of the capital's most exclusive out of town neighbourhoods.


Nestled in the leafy north London, Totteridge stands out as one of the capital's most exclusive neighbourhoods, boasting an enviable mix of picturesque village cottages and sprawling detached mansions favoured by celebrities and football stars alike. Perched atop a high ridge just 10 miles north of central London, Totteridge exudes charm with its quaint cluster of period houses and cottages enveloping St Andrew's Church, home to the ancient yew tree—a revered symbol dating back between 1,000 and 2,000 years.

Surrounded by Barnet to the north, Whetstone to the east, Finchley to the south, and Mill Hill to the west, Totteridge Village captivates with its serene ambiance, albeit lacking in shops save for The Orange Tree—a beloved pub and restaurant nestled by a scenic duck pond. Across Marsh Lane on the Mill Hill side lies The Rising Sun, another popular haunt for locals.

Venturing into nearby Whetstone unveils a charming high street dotted with a variety of shops, including large branches of Waitrose and M&S Simply Food, alongside independent cafes and restaurants. The Griffin, a renowned local pub, stands as a landmark establishment, while culinary enthusiasts can indulge in delectable offerings at Monkeynuts, Tootoomoo, and familiar chains like PizzaExpress and Ask Italian.

Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to explore in Totteridge, with the Dollis Valley Green Walk tracing a picturesque 10-mile route around the neighbourhood's periphery, passing through scenic spots like Totteridge Park Open Space and Brook Farm Open Space. Sports aficionados can tee off at the historic South Herts Golf Club or partake in tennis matches at Totteridge Tennis Club, while cricket enthusiasts can join the action at Totteridge Millhillians Cricket Club.

For cultural enrichment, the All Saints Arts Centre offers a diverse events program ranging from wrestling to organ recitals, alongside community classes spanning dance, Tai Chi, and sculpture. 

Families seeking educational opportunities will find a range of primary and comprehensive schools in the vicinity, including St Andrew's CofE Primary School, St Michael's Catholic Grammar School, Finchley Catholic High, Hasmonean High, and JCoSS, each offering excellent educational standards and results. Additionally, grammar schools like Queen Elizabeth's and Henrietta Barnett provide outstanding academic pathways, while private institutions such as Mill Hill School, Aldenham School, and Haberdashers' Aske's Schools cater to discerning students seeking a top-tier education.
