A short history
Evidence of human settlement dates back to pre-historic times, with Hornsey and Tottenham established by 1300. Many streets bear the names of long-gone aristocrats: the Barons Coleraine, the Comptons, and Waltheof, Lord of Tottenham Manor. Other local names, such as Wood Green, testify to the area’s rural past, some of which still survives in Haringey's parks.
Haringey remained a rural area until the 18th Century when large houses close to London became increasingly common. The coming of the railways from the mid-nineteenth century onwards led to rapid urbanisation; by the turn of the century much of Haringey had been transformed from a rural to an urbanised environment.
The Wood Green Empire was a popular music hall, built in 1912. It became notorious in 1918, when 1,800 people gathered to watch Chung Ling Soo, billed as ‘The World's Greatest Magician’. Actually an American entertainer, born William Ellsworth Robinson, Chung kept up the pretence that he was Chinese throughout his career. At the climax of his show, he performed one of his most famous illusions, where he appeared to catch a bullet between his teeth. But an accident caused a real bullet to be fired, leading Chung to speak English for the first time in public: “Oh my God. Something’s happened. Lower the curtain.” Chung died the following day of his wounds. Still standing today, the building is now the local branch of the Halifax.
Haringey’s close proximity to the capital means that prices are on the up, but there are still areas where bargains can be found.
As you’d expect from such a diverse borough, there is a huge range of property styles, from period properties through to ultra-modern apartment blocks.
If you are interested in putting your house on the market, our Sales Agents will be pleased to arrange a home valuation. Those looking to purchase property in Haringey can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties. Alternatively, if you are a Landlord considering letting your property, or you are looking to rent within the area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

Things to do
You will struggle to find a more beautiful place to watch the sun set over the London skyline than Alexandra Palace. ‘Ally Pally’ not only invites you to stroll the park and enjoy the sublime views, but you can also take a row across the Boating Lake, try a spot of ice skating at the Rink, or relax with a drink at the Phoenix Bar.
Finsbury Park is the perfect location for a stroll or a family picnic, or you can enjoy spectacular views from the vantage points at leafy Muswell Hill.
Highgate Cemetery is a fascinating place to spend a couple of hours, with many famous occupants including sculptor Henry Moore and political theorist Karl Marx.

My contract at my old house finished and I was scared that we would be homeless if the Landlord woke up one day and decided he would make a change. Jay helped us so much in such short notice to get this beautiful house hassle free, and I will recommend anyone looking to rent in the future to go to him.

Buying a house can be stressful, unless you find a right person to help you out. My mortgage advisor Dzaneta Zinyte found the best mortgage offer, she answered all my question and provided excellent customer service also she kept me updated at all times. I had an amazing experience since day one and I would highly recommend her.

My experience was not so great we lost trust, until you got a new manager who I found very very professional, at the same time he was able to be really honest and he kept us properly informed. The process took a long time but he kept in touch, which helped to build our confidence in the company. I believe he went above and beyond for the sale of the property. We were very pleased with the work he done for us.

Syede and Isaac are very helpful throughout my purchase. As a first time buyer I had plenty of doubts, but they answered all my questions and made the process easier. We have now exchanged the contract and expecting to complete by next week. I will definitely recommend everyone to take their help.

There was a lot of hiccups along the way but all in all is a good experienced. It wasnt a good service at the beginning but this got better.
I had the best evaluation compared to 2 other estate agents.
I had an offer within 2 weeks of dealing with Kings without even having to put my property online and completed the transaction within 3months. This is all down to the hard work of Denzel Wellman. Denzel has been brilliant from the beginning to the end. He made sure that everything goes well and communicated with me the whole time which gave me reassurance and comfort.
I used Kings conveyensor for both my sell and buy for the transaction to go through smoothly but i feel that there are a few communication issues within the departments.
All in all i will recommend Kings estate agent based on my recent experience.
