Crouch End is an artsy area that has boutique shops and independent restaurants to enjoy.

Those in the area can stroll down the Parkland Walk, which is the longest linear nature reserve in London.

It has gained popularity and those who have been down the route have shared their thoughts on Tripadvisor.

One wrote: "This was my second time walking along this path, but I’d love to run it sometime! Beautiful frosty plants everywhere and happy dogs with their owners.

"The highlight is definitely the disused Crouch End station platforms."

Another added: "It is always nice to walk down here - the whole way from Finsbury Park to Highgate - a hidden gem and a quick way to walk between the two!"

The third said it was a "great" and "fascinating" walk.
