Guide to Cockfosters
Perched at the end of the Piccadilly Line, the North London suburb of Cockfosters combines leafy streets and parks with a superb mix of services and excellent transport links. As such, it’s hardly surprising that property in Cockfosters is in such high demand among commuters.
Straddling the boroughs of Barnet and Enfield, Cockfosters is just 13 miles from central London, yet retains its village feel thanks to its low-density housing and abundant green spaces.
Perhaps the best-known of these spaces is Trent Park, a country house with extensive grounds that once formed part of Henry IV’s hunting grounds. Now open to the public, the park boasts attractive landscaped gardens and plays host to regular concerts throughout the summer months. Adrenaline junkies should be sure to check out the treetop Go Ape adventure park, which is also located within the grounds.

The roots of Cockfosters can be traced back until the early 16th century, with the name thought to refer to either a local family or a house that once stood in the area. One of the suburb’s most historic buildings is the Cock Inn, which dates back to 1798. Today, the pub is a popular spot among local diners and drinkers thanks to traditional yet contemporary interiors and spacious beer garden.
While it has always been a popular place to live for people working in London, the arrival of a London Underground connection in 1933 put the suburb firmly on the commuter belt.
