What’s good in your hood – Turnpike Lane!

Turnpike Lane is a tube station on the Piccadilly Line that you probably won’t ever find in a guidebook! However, two of our staff members (Viv & Mel) live in this neighbourhood and it is packed with cool places to check out and fantastic food!

Perhaps some of you have actually been to this neighbourhood for a Social Programme activity? Maybe it was at the Turkish Restaurant, Gökyüzü? That’s a Tti favourite! The area is famous for the Turkish food but we thought we’d focus on some of the new local shops, cafes and restaurants that are popping up!
