Southgate is situated in North London and in the post code area of N14. It is a clean and a well looked after part of London. A111 and A1004 pass through it and it is very close to A406 (North Circular Road) and also M25.

It is split in two boroughs; namely The London Borough of Enfield and The London Borough of Barnet. It is a sought-out area of London as the residents are proud to live in this area and look after the roads they live on. This is reflected on the house prices, which rise faster than the national average. House prices are also higher than the national average.

This is also a multi-cultural part of London as there are lots of people with different countries of origin, different backgrounds and cultures and all live side by side in peace respecting each other's way of life.
