Muswell Hill’s origins are already reason enough to visit the area. With ties to both the Roman era as well as the Victorian era, there is plenty here to keep students of history occupied. However, visitors can also take a look at the more recent developments in the town, when it was finally reached by development despite its reputation as a very muddy area not suitable for roads.
Make like a local and take a walk through this historic town. Here’s a few places you can visit when you take a trip like you’re a local.
Muswell Hill hides a tasty little secret within the town boundaries. Perhaps you’ve taken a sip or two under its cozy shades.

Cutting down on carbs? One of the best things you can do is to go vegan and if you’re in Muswell Hill, the top vegan shop here is Planet Organic. Are you looking for vegan barbecue? Vegan casserole, or any other type of vegan dish? Well, stop by the shop and they’ll probably have it in stock. They also stock health products as well as baby oil—all au natural, of course!
On the site known today as Woodside Square was a former hospital. That’s a historical connection that this development—a project by Hanover Housing Association—has. A few of the flats have even been converted from the hospital itself. Perhaps, because of its historical significance, the flats have been selling out fast and only a few of them remain.
Where else can you get your food fix and music as well? Cheeses are a shop for those who love this dairy product. They’ve got all kinds of cheese, perfect for all occasions.
