I lived in the Tufnell Park area in Burghley Road in 1967 till I joined the RAF. Never been back since.
I used to go to an ABC Cinema on the A400 after the crossing traffic lights, but as all that has nowadays altered so much, I'd be grateful if anybody has images of it or the name of the street where it was situated. I remember having to climb some steps to get to the front entrance of it.
where was the clinic in the 1940s its now top of Tufnell park rd but Id like to know where is once was cheers Bonnie....

YOUR IN FOR A TREAT!!!
My boyfriend and I moved to Tufnell Park in April and absolutely love it :) I was just wondering if there are any sorts of social groups or meet-ups in the area? We are both creative professionals but would also be interested in any work-out groups or general community groups.
everyone who is on benefits should be exterminated
Would have cost us £600+for cat dental op. Saved £400
Do you know what the price is at the different gyms? And how much is it to swim there if it is just once?
Tufnell Park is fantastic! I have lived in London for more than 20 years (north, south, east and west) and having been in the area for three years now, I find Tufnell Park to be the most safe, relaxed and friendly part of town I have ever lived in. I know many people in the area who think exactly the same. We live in a metropolis and there are bound to frictions, but fairly considered Tufnell Park is truly safe and pleasant residential environment. It's a positive place to be.
Lived here for a year, and apart from President Obama's helicopter going over when he arrived for the G20, it has really not been noticable.
Could anyone tell me if aircraft noise is a problem in Tufnell park?
does anyone know of a drop-in life class in tufnell park or somewhere nearby? somewhere cheapish, less than £10..?

Hello, can you please remove my posting dated July 21 from the forum (titled "Tufnell Park Have you found a practice?!).
thanks and regards
Have you tried the Islington Arts Factory? I think they do capoeira on Tuesday eves, not sure which type though.
You'll find them on google...
I know a place in Camden which is quite close. I think it's called the Camden Physiotherapy Centre (or something similar). I used to do yoga there but they specialise in Pilates. Their number is 0207 424 8668.
there is a gym behind Archway station, with pool sauna etc. its not private so the rates are very reasonable
So if you get any advice or recommendations, I'd be interested to know too. I would much rather hire someone that has been recommended.
I'd suggest NOT the surgery on the corner opposite the station. My experience and that of my flatmates suggest that the doctors there are unhelpful and rude
Try these guys - they have a nice relaxed class: www.angoleiro.co.uk
Does anyone know of a capoeira class in Tufnell Park or Kentish Town. Preferably capoeira angola.
Hiya, I might be moving to Tufnell Park with my two flatmates and was wondering what kind of place it is? We're moving from Bethnal Green in search of somewhere a bit nicer...
I know its quiet and my experience of quieter places is that safety can be an issue as there aren't many people out and about. We're currently looking on TP Road near Mercers Road. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I know people like to defend the area in which they live but I'd like realistic answers if possible :)
It's still open, but it's not open every day - I think it is closed Mondays, and maybe Tuesdays. Give them a call on 7485 7984 to find out. It's the same as it always was - heaven forbid they ever close for refurbishment!
Hi, I'm after a good doctor. I went to Dr Ko up the road but didn't think too much of him.
yes, i am moving and hence selling all my stuff... furniture that is...
so... if anyone's interested, do give me a ring at 0798 ****76 or email to

There was a short article about it in last week's Islington Tribune or CNJ - something about a power generator failing near the school, patching up and failing again on Tuesday/Wednesday. What else is new!
I am on Fortess Road and the whole block of upper Fortess Road had power cuts lasting hours for the past few days - anybody know what's going on? It is very annoying.
There were flowers tied to the median of Tufnell Park Road at Holloway Road, outside the Odeon exit, when I walked to work this week - anyone know what happened?
Tufnell Park is known to people who live in North London or who have been in London for a while. Hampstead and Highgate are the famous areas so you'll find that most people will have heard of them, even if they don't know where they are. It is correct to say that you live in Tufnell Park but you might also explain its proximity to the Northern Line tube, Kentish Town, Hampstead Heath or Highgate.
not a bad area at all
spaghetti house is a little gem and the junction, boston and bar lorca are all good places to scoop
the ethiopian restuarant lalibela is also sound
its still open!
go there every day!
the spaghettie house is nice, lol
No grief, you gonna love Tufnell Park its a great place to live.
I need to get fit! I'm 29, used to jog a few times a week but since I moved to T Park I've been a lazy bum. Any other ladies out there looking for a slightly slow jogging mate? I wanted to try running in Hampstead Heath and around Tufnell Park. Mail me if you're interested!
I think the Camden NW5 part (around Dartmouth Pk Hill, Fortess Road) is more likely to be called either Kentish Town or Dartmouth Park as you get further up towards Highgate.
The roads leading off Tufnell Pk Road, Huddleston Rd and as far down as Camden Road on the Islington side (N7 /N19) is seen more as Tufnell Park.
They seem to spend the whole day there, but Ive never seen them cause much trouble.
Ive heard of a few incidents on Anson Rd and Lady Margaret Rd, but you're safe on the main road.
Does anyone know how long (approx) it would take to cycle from Tufnell Park to West Kensington? I'm thinking of cycling to work.
the kids rae ok and the pubs ok because the police are usually there when it closes. I feel safe and I live in junction rd.. The pubs are really good in the earea . most people are friendly.
....the kids hanging out at night at the food and wine shop on the corner oppoite the tube station - do they ever cause any grief? I'm about to move to Junction Road and am a tad paranoid...!
its north of camden
Gospel oak has a pool
I live there and we call it tufnell park
I wonder whether Tufnel Park is a recognised area of London. If someone lives in Tufnel Park Road, do they live generally in Tufnell Park or some other area of London?
hey, i'm planning to come to london for a couple of days soon and i'd like to stay at charlies budget hotel. so maybe someone has heard something about it or has stayed there himself... if you have, pleae, let me know what your impressions are.
I was considering buying a flat on lupton st, but there was bad subsidence and property had been underpinned.
Does anybody know of any aerobics classes that I can got to on a week night in tufnell park????
I used to feel quite safe in Tufnell Park, until that evening where I got mugged on Anson Road. All these roads are very quiet at night, and it is very easy to get assaulted without anybody noticing/hearing things.
True, I could have been mugged anywhere else in London, but I have to say it happened 500m from my place. I now walk on Tufnell park Road, even if it is a longer walk for me.
Fucking hoodies, I just hate them !
LA Fitness in Highgate Rd
Hello ! have you found a gay friendly practice in the area after all ?!
I have a cough which may be on my cHest. I need an appointment with a Dr. I have only recently come to live in Tufnell Park.
Archway Leisure Centre is about 10-15mins walk away from Tufnell Park stn, (or 2 mins by bus).
But I prefer to cycle, jog and swim in Hampstead Heath. Open air swimming, for free, with the trees around you... can't be beaten!
la fitness just is just off highgate rd, not even 10 mins from the station. It has a pool, sauna and steam room as well as gym. Its called the highgate branch but its not in highgate. seeya
Same question here - can someone recommend a professional and friendly GP in TP?
does anyone know if there has anything bad happened somewhere around 128 fortess road in the past??
I used to live in Tufnell Park but seldom go back there. I passed through the other night and was amazed to see the Singer Sewing Centre is STILL there! It has been there 30 years at least I reckon, how does it make money?
Hi, Does anyone know whether Tufnell Park has a gym with swimming pool, or if there are any close by?
I live in Tufnell Park north London and I would like to get in contact with other cat owner for Pet Sitting exchange. I have 2 beautiful cats, a somali and a norweigen forest cat, that have recently moved with me to London from Iceland. I do not travel alot, but need sitting next time over x-mas and new years, where I will be gone for 11 days. The sitter will come to my home, and vice versa.
Please respond to Helene on
no, the spaghetti house is still open and great ... only is shut on either saturday or sunday and was closed for a long period in the summer.
The Spaghetti House is definitely NOT closed. It's still the best (and the friendliest!) place to eat in Tufnell Park. Perhaps you passed the restaurant on a Sunday or Monday, when it's always closed?
You prefer Wood Green!? If you call fighting your way through empty KFC buckets and gangs of hoodies to get to a complete selections of wall to wall tacky horrible shops personality, you are welcome to it.
wir haben sie in unserm buch gesehen (megan)
I am thinking of buying a flat near the station. Are there any roads that have particular subsidence problems that I should avoid?
I just called the restaurant on ********1 and Anzo confirmed that he was on holiday until yesterday. He said the restaurant is opened starting from today.
When I saw it closed in the past, it was always because Anzo, the chef and owner, was on holidays and there is no other chef except him.
Thus, he may have been on a summer holiday. You can ring them in advance to check before you go.
There used to be a fantastic italian restaurant opposite the tube called Spaghetti House - I tried to go the other day and it looked like it was closed, though I wasn't sure if it was for good or temporarily. Does anyone know? I'll be gutted if it is gone for good as it was lovely and super-cheap......
There's a village vet in the junction of chetwynd rd and York rise
Yes yes I do, two doors down from me! Turn off Brecknock Road onto Carleton Rd, and walk down the left hand side until there, my friend, your prize awaits.
I need a plasterer to do a small job in my kitchen, basically 2 small areas. Email me for further details.
You should invest in some juggliung balls or some other diversion,,,,
Did anyone knows charlie budget hotel reservation phone number?. Thanks
