This is also an area that benefits from good local knowledge when it comes to leaflet distribution. For example Highgate is well known for being a 'Green' postcode. It is full of smaller parks and many of the roads here are lined by trees. It is however important to keep in mind that space comes at a premium in Highgate and as a result there are very few gardens and very few homes have privately owned green spaces. This is important information to keep in mind for example for any gardening company that is looking to target Highgate with flyer distribution. There are other areas surrounding Highgate that would be considerably better for any gardening company like the above mentioned Hampstead of Hampstead Garden Suburbs.
The architecture in Highgate is fairly unique. You will find many Georgian and Victorian houses here but also many unique historical buildings. This is also mixed with some larger modern homes. Any company focused on building maintenance and high level repairs of modern and historical residential buildings should think about running a leaflet distribution campaign in N6.
Highgate is one of the areas that needs extra attention from any leaflet distribution company. It is built on rather hilly terrain and with winding roads and staircases to almost every home our distributors do have to battle the physical challenges Highgate poses. We make sure to keep our maps in Highgate slightly smaller than other areas of London and we do not overload our workers. Even though our shared distribution system allows us to run three leaflets in all London areas we choose to generally keep the shares of larger leaflets down in Highgate to help our distributors with the physical difficulties they might encounter in N6. This allows us to run an efficient and reliable leaflet distribution in this challenging area on weekly basis.

We deliver for many local restaurants, estate agents, lifestyle apps, events or auction houses here. It certainly is in our top ten recommended postcodes in London for targetting affluent households.
