Is Tottenham Becoming the new Shoreditch?

Published by: Paul Simon Residential

Shoreditch is part of the historic East End of London situated north of the City of London. The etymology of "Shoreditch" is constantly debated. One popular legend holds that the place was originally named "Shore's Ditch", after a lady called Jane Shore, the mistress of Edward IV, is supposed to have died or been buried in a ditch in the area.

Many London areas can be accused of alternating between being “sought after” and not “sought after.” Remember Notting Hill Gate back in the 1970’s? Fashions and demands change as do areas. Today as you emerge from Seven Sisters Tube station, you are greeted by the many sights, sounds, and smells which perhaps remind and tell you how fast Tottenham is changing and the resemblance it has with a place like Shoreditch.

Of course each area retains an aspect of life which is peculiar to that place alone such as the famous White Hart Lane and The Emirates stadium or Alexandra Palace (fondly known as Ally Pally) both of which are famous to many, but those many residents both past and present who remember Tottenham some thirty years ago will see a huge change in so many of the facilities offered today.
