North London is the area described as the northern part of London. As the region is not official, it tends to cover different areas under different circumstances. Sometimes this term is used to differentiate the districts on the north of the River Thames. However, sometimes it is used to separate these districts from Central, West and East London. According to the London Plan, the area consists of Barnet, Camden, Hackney, Islington, Westminster, Enfield and Haringey. Being home to these towns means that North London owns a large majority of the rail network. Accumulatively, the area has a population of just over one million residents, over one eight of London's whole population.
North London is home to premier league football clubs such as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. With this and the booming attraction of Camden Town, the north is easily becoming one of the largest tourist attractions of the capital.
