Seven Sisters


The mural at Seven Sisters   (Hans Unger) shows the seven trees that gave the area and the station its name.


A Victorian Market

Covered markets were all the rage in Victorian Britain and several excellent ones have survived all over the country.  The one outside the tube station at Seven Sisters is, strictly speaking, Edwardian, but it is certainly worth a visit.


Climbing  the staircase at Seven Sisters brings you almost face to face with it.



Almost hidden behind a row of shops is the Latin corner of London. South American produce is available from 50 stalls.  The stall holders are mainly of Columbian descent but there are some from other South American countries.  Pablo Parisa café is an excellent place to have a coffee or something more substantial.




A Pub

The Fountain Hotel (West Green Road)


Situated a short walk from the tube station down the vibrant multicultural West Green Road, the Fountain is a lovely old Victorian local.  The public bar is massive and accommodates a pool table in front of the bar. There are saucepans hanging from the ceiling and a collection of old signs advertising products from days gone by.   The locals at the bar are friendly and the place has hotel rooms and, surprisingly, a Japanese food menu.
