Arlington Road has its roots in royal romance. It’s built on the Tottenham Manor estate, which Charles II granted to Henry Bennett, Earl of Arlington, in 1668, when Henry’s daughter married Charles’ son. The royal connection has given the street a touch of magic. It’s situated on the best side of Camden High Street – the west – and enjoys a friendly community spirit and picturesque location with Regent’s Park just a step away.
The street boasts a variety of architecture. The earliest houses, towards the Mornington Crescent end of the road, were built in 1806, but most of the houses were built in 1839. These luxuriate in long gardens, many over 80 feet long, backing onto equally generous plots and affording a glorious sense of space. These popular Victorian beauties, with their imposing facades and wrought iron window casements are predominantly four storeys high, though many boast fifth floor extensions. Appearances can be deceptive, though: some of the houses have two bedrooms whereas others have as many as five, a difference that isn’t apparent from the pavement and can only be appreciated inside. This end of the street is wide and picturesque, shaded by silver birch, maple and London plane trees.
Further along Arlington Road, towards what was once called Grove Street, the street adopts a more down-to-earth atmosphere and commercial and residential properties nestle together. Here the street is dominated by imposing buildings such as the Bingo Hall, the famous Good Mixer Pub, Arlington House and the amazing high-tech Glass Building.
Nearby is a feast for your senses: the tantalising scent of freshly roasted coffee beans on Delancey Street; the friendly faces at the Italian restaurant; and the delicious flavours in a Portuguese convenience store. Close by is Marks and Spencer’s and the Inverness Street market.
If you love historic buildings, prepare to be enchanted. The street is host to a range of fascinating buildings, from the Old Tram Shed, which used to be used by Romany ironmongers, to the celebrated and unique estate agency, our office, situated in a double-decker bus, via the excellent Cavendish School and Roman Catholic Church of Lady Hal. And if you love contemporary design, you can admire the luxury modern flats at METRO, a converted garage, and the conversion of the old Electricity Sub Station into elegant flats offering the highest standards in contemporary living.
