Vistors have shared their praises


Celebrities have their pick of where to settle down but many choose to live in beautiful parts of the UK.

Spice Girls legend and television star Emma Bunton has lived in leafy parts of north London for many years.

The singer lived in Cockfosters which is part of England that straddles the London Borough of Enfield and the London Borough of Barnet.

Despite being in the busy capital city, it has lots of green space where residents can enjoy a peaceful stroll.
