Area Information

Arnos Grove is a peaceful and sought after residential area in the southwest corner of the London Borough of Enfield. The area sits between Bounds Green and and Southgate at the western end of Bowes Road.

People living here have access to a good selection of amenities, including cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, shops and pubs. There is a local swimming pool, a public library, and the sweeping lawns of Arnos Park, a remnant of the historic Arnos Grove Estate, which dates back to the 14th century.

Until the 1930s the area was largely undeveloped and rural. The majority of the property was developed following the opening of the tube station in 1932, although many of the new houses were damaged during World War II. The area’s close proximity to the North Circular (built 1929), along with the addition of the tube station, made Arnos Grove a desirable place to live.

During the 1950s and 1960s, sites damaged during the war were redeveloped, primarily with social housing projects. Any remaining space was used up in the most recent property boom. The resulting properties were mostly sold to commuters, or investors, looking to take advantage of the relatively quick commuting time to Central London.

In October 2007 Arnos Grove Tube Station was featured alongside the Sydney Opera House and the Empire State Building on the Guardian’s list of 12 Great Modern Buildings. The Guardian's architecture critic, Jonathan Glancey, commented 'Arnos Grove station … was designed not simply to please a wealthy elite, but as a modern fanfare for the common man.’
