Following IKEA's announcement that they will be closing the North London store in Tottenham, many of us will be looking to find the next nearest store. 

Ikea said the closure of the north London store was part of its £1 billion investment strategy in London, including the recent opening of a smaller store format in Hammersmith, west London.

The retailer also plans to open a store inside the former Topshop building on Oxford Street, making its debut in London’s West End.

In a statement from IKEA they said: "The decision to propose closing the Tottenham store has not been taken lightly but we believe it is the right thing to do for our customers and business as we strengthen our position for the future."

"We will do everything we can to support the co-workers affected and our hope is that as many as possible will continue their career journey with us."

Just under an hour away there is IKEA Greenwich which you can get to via A12  and through Stratford and under the Blackwall Tunnel.

For a longer drive, you can take a trip to IKEA Croyden using the North Circular and heading through Greenwich.
