The Spice Girls legend has lived in some beautiful areas in north London

Emma Bunton is known for her success as a singer, actress and presenter, first finding fame in the 1990s.

The singer lived in north London, owning a home in Cockfosters before moving to another part of the capital city.

Cockfosters is an area in England that straddles the London Borough of Enfield and the London Borough of Barnet.

It is a leafy part of the capital city described as "a metropolitan blend of open spaces, excellent facilities and easy commuting".

"You will experience a village lifestyle set amongst tree-lined streets, with independent stores and beautiful countryside in easy reach," Anthony Pepe Estate Agents added.

"It's no wonder that this little oasis attracts families and those seeking a quieter way of life but who still need to be in the city."

The north London spot may be a desirable place to live but it is not cheap to purchase a property there.

The average house price sits at £621,626 over the last year and semi-detached properties were the most expensive at around £801,740.

Terraced houses have fetched £587,667 in the last year while flats were the most affordable types of property in the area, costing around £373,253.

Emma previously gave recommendations for those visiting London. She told The Standard: "There's a lovely restaurant near my house called Villa Bianca that does takeaway specially for me.

"And the O2 Centre on Finchley Road: it's like a Warner Village multiplex - loads of restaurants and cinema screens."

She added tourists should visit the London Eye. The 48-year-old has toured the world with her music but chose to settle down in her hometown of London.

The musician lives in the idyllic English village of Crackington Haven in Cornwall which is an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty.

"Crackington Haven is an all-year-round destination," Visit Cornwall states. "In the spring, the surrounding cliffs and hills are accentuated with vivid green grass, carpets of wild flowers and exotic birdsong.

"Summertime sees a bustling beach life, as sunlight bathes the warm Atlantic waters, providing the perfect conditions for swimming.

"In the autumn, take a long walk along the tops of the cliffs and admire the power of the sea as it crashes against the rocks below."
