New Southgate is a residential suburb that lies at the point of conjunction of three north-London boroughs – Barnet, Enfield and Haringey. Originally part of a tiny hamlet called Betstyle, New Southgate was renamed after the railway station of the same name. The New Southgate Railway Station, built in1850, has become a major landmark for the area. New Southgate is also within easy reach of a range of attractions, including the historical Avenue House and the neo-classical Kenwood House.
New Southgate may be a residential neighbourhood but there are also areas offering office space for a range of businesses. Most small businesses and stores cater to the residential population, although the New Southgate Industrial Estate is home to a diverse range of companies, including software and construction firms.
