Britannia Row is a quiet and peaceful road which joins to Essex Road. It’s popular for yoga and Pilate’s enthusiasts as ‘The Life Centre’ is right on the doorstep. Founded in 1993, it has been described as a safe haven where therapies inspire well-being - adding to the tranquillity of the area. As it’s a one-way road, there is rarely traffic as commuters avoid using it. Residents here are close to amenities but away from the noise and hustle and bustle, making it a great place to live.
Britannia Row is also home to the London Art House. All rooms within the venue have been adorned with beautiful lighting and furniture, inspired by specific artists and art eras. At the bottom of Britannia Row is St James Church, a modern Catholic parish which is popular for traditional weddings and ceremonies. During the Medieval times the church was owned by the Canons of St Paul’s Cathedral, and the surrounding streets were named respectively: Prebend Street, St Paul’s Street, Canon Street and Bishop Street. The rich history of the area is certainly appealing.
Residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to amenities. There are an array of health shops such as Planet Organic, plus florists, restaurants and bars on Essex Road, and there is something to do at any time of day. Within a few minutes’ walk is the favoured Old Kings Head pub, which is intimate with coal fires, but the host of lively karaoke nights at the weekend. In terms of transport, lots of busses run along Essex road, many of which are 24 hours. It’s also only a 10 minute walk to Angel Tube station, which gives you access to the Northern line.
There are a number of small flats on the road, most of which are home to families, so it’s a quiet residential area. The perfect place to live away from the hustle and bustle.
