Art deco, contemporary, futuristic, tall, short...

You can tell us more about Archway.

Favourite Building
  • Suicide Bridge: this magnificent tribute to the quality of Victorian engineering towers over the road up to Highgate. It's rumoured that in the event of the breakdown of law and order Highgate's civil defence committee will man the bridge, and pour boiling oil on any intruders from the slums at the bottom of the hill.
  • St. Joseph's Church sits proudly on Highgate Hill overlooking a fantastic London panorama. This huge cathedral like church is worth a look inside, nice big dome.
  • Not many!
  • My house, Whitehall Park, unfortunenately I can't afford to live there.
  • Archway Tower: Part of the civil estate used to be Social secrity building but from 2001 it should be used for housing The office of national statistics to assist in the census stats. New model army wrote a song about it called "archway tower"
  • The Archway Tower is a bit of an enigma. Tall, ugly but obviously commanding brilliant views of London it's purpose is unknown other than providing employment for the bored looking security guard who sits in there all day.
