Home of Alexandra Palace, Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and people from all over the world, Haringey claims to have something for everyone.

It combines the city and the country, the high tech and the traditional and offers so much to visitors. Go west, browse through Muswell Hill's shops and have a meal at one of Crouch End's international restaurants. Hop on a bus to Alexandra Palace, where public television was born and enjoy the view from its terrace, where, on a clear day, you can see all over London and beyond.

Go to Wood Green to shop or watch a blockbuster movie at one of its nineteen screens, and then escape to the Paddock, a rural oasis in the east of the borough that backs onto the River Lee. Relax with a sauna or swim at Tottenham Green Leisure Centre, or watch Spurs play at White Hart Lane. Buy some fresh fruit in Green Lanes, one of Haringey's culturally diverse areas. Finish your day with a stroll through picturesque Highgate Village and a drink in one of its garden pubs, or dance the night away at a Tottenham club.

If you've settled in Haringey, there are opportunities for budding and established businesses, over 90 schools, a college and a university, and good tube and rail links to central London and to Heathrow and Stansted Airports, just in case you should ever feel the need to go somewhere else.

Anti-fraud and corruption strategy

Haringey Council joins the growing number of Council's who take their responsibility to preserve the public purse (ratepayers money) seriously.  They aim to provide excellent services to all its users. However, like any other large organisation, there is a risk of fraud and corruption happening at all levels in the council, which includes officer corruption, planning favours and the like.

Haringey Council is committed to developing a culture of honesty, and zero tolerance to fraud and corruption.

They expect all Councillors, employees, consultants, contractors, and service users, to be honest, and to give them any help and information, so they can deal properly with fraud and corruption.

The Council has an anti-fraud and corruption strategy which sets out how employees, or members of the public can let them know about suspected cases of fraud or corruption. It also outlines how the Council will deal with these cases,
