Local Information

Wood Green

Wood Green is a busy urban activity centre with a sizeable shopping area with two cinemas, bars, nightclubs, numerous restaurants and cafes and a shopping area called Shopping City close to the tube station.

The High Road, the main shopping spine, is part of Green Lanes and stretches from the Wood Green tube station to the next stop on the Piccadilly Line, Turnpike Lane, and is lined with shops along its route. Wood Green Crown Court is a short distance along Lordship Lane. The area has also established a reputation for being vibrant and multicultural, and it has been estimated that nearly two hundred languages are spoken in the area.

Residential property in the area is mainly Edwardian and Victorian, mainly terraced houses. The area has several estates including Noel Park, one of the pioneering social housing projects of the mid 19th century, and 'Sky City', located above the shopping district. The area to the west of Shopping City is currently being developed by Haringey council to become Haringey Heartlands, an urban regeneration project which it is hoped will become a 'heartland' of the borough of Haringey, linking the wealthier Western side to the traditionally more-deprived East.

Wood Green has a very strong artistic tradition in theatre, film, TV, music and the visual arts. Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, a world-famous acting school with strong links to both theatre and TV, is located in Wood Green.

Beginning in 1995 as an artist-led initiative The Chocolate Factory is now the centre of a vast Cultural Quarter which includes artists, music, film & multi media studios, photographic studios, printers, 2 restaurants, recording studios and several performing arts organisations.

The Wood Green International Short Film Festival, a film festival showing short British and international films, was founded in 2002. As well as screening films, it hosts discussion groups and workshops for both established and up-and-coming filmakers. The next festival is in April 2008.
