A Highgate holiday apartment is a perfect choice when travelling with family. The large Victorian homes with big gardens provide a perfect setting for enjoying time with your children or even your extended family. Modern kitchens, private balconies and parking are some of the amenities that you’ll find when you choose Highgate holiday rentals. You will also be close to public transport options and many of the most popular London attractions and activities.
-History: The city of London has a long and rich history, and Highgate offers a glimpse into that history. Visitors to Highgate Cemetery can see tombs from the Victorian era. This cemetery is on the English Heritage Register. You will also be close to many historic buildings and just a short tube ride away from some of the most well-known castles in the world.
-Dining: While your Highgate holiday house will have a well-appointed kitchen, you may want to dine out, and there are no shortage of options near your holiday rental. Consider High Tea of Highgate or a fine meal at Strada or one of the many other restaurants
-Bars: Highgate and the nearby areas are home to some wonderful bars and pubs. Enjoy a drink at Boogaloo or stop by Bull. Bull is one of the most interesting bars in the area because they make their own beer. The basement of this bar has been turned into a beer making operation, and you can taste the fruit of their labour.
-Antiquing: If you enjoy antiquing then you will love the offerings in and near Highgate. Visit many small shops where you will find unique treasures. Even if you don’t find something that you want to bring home, it is always fun browsing the offerings in the antique shops near your Highgate holiday rental.
Deciding when to holiday to Highgate depends, in part, on how you want to spend your time. If you plan to spend each day wandering the exhibits at London museums then you could visit during the winter when the average lows are 2° to 5° C and the average highs are 8° to 11°. If, however, you want to spend the majority of your time in the out of doors then you will want to consider visiting during the summer when average highs re 20° to 23° C. This is also the peak season and when you’ll find the largest crowds. You can avoid the peak season by visiting near the end of the summer or in late spring.
If you are flying to London then consider using Heathrow Airport (HTR). From there you can easily complete your journey to your Highgate holiday house via public transport or private car. You can travel by tube to the Highgate tube station or by train to the Kentish Town railway station.
