This site hopes to give you a bit of a picture of all the fun and interesting places to go in and around Tottenham - with a few extras thrown in.

The Tottenham Civic Society, devoted to promoting all things great and good in Tottenham, is also connecting ASAP. They publish a really interesting newsletter with pics called CIVITAS TOTTENHAM.
Just the other day the Society gave a tour of the High Road to share their knowledge of local history and exciting new developments. On Saturday 31st May they're giving a tour of Broadwater Farm. You can find their events at Bruce Castle Museum and the Hornsey Historical Society.
And also a new free local paper, available in print and online, is now doing the rounds.
