Highgate is a district of London and lies on the north-easterly edge of Hampstead Heath, a leafy green residential area of the city. As a sought-after commuter area, Highgate is one of the most expensive parts of London to live, not only with regard to property prices but also in terms of rent.
The area boasts many fine Georgian, early Victorian and Edwardian houses and the Highgate Society is keen to protect the area’s character and heritage for future generations. Highgate’s famous cemetery, Waterlow Park as well as three ancient areas of woodland are all part of the attraction of living in this part of town.
Highgate has, in many respects, managed to preserve its village character and walking down local streets is still very much like walking down one’s local high street in a village. Cafes and restaurants serve mainly a clientèle of regular customers, namely residents of Highgate, rather than tourists as in other parts of London. Also, unlike in other parts of London, local residents consist mainly of famous celebrities such as Sting, Geri Halliwell, Bob Hoskins, Terry Gilliam, Ewan McGregor and Kate Moss, which explains the house prices and high rents.
Highgate’s Victorian cemetery is not just famous for being the last resting place of Karl Marx. It boasts a fine collection of mature trees and shrubs and is also the final home to notable former Highgate residents such as writers Douglas Adams, George Eliot and actor Sir Ralph Richardson.
If you strolled through the cemetery and an ancient headstone toppled just as you were walking by and crushed your foot, you could make an accident claim in Highgate against the organisation responsible for the upkeep of the cemetery’s historic graves.
