Canonbury Road runs through the heart of Canonbury, connecting Highbury & Islington at the northern section to Essex Road at the southern section. The area itself holds close much history, from famous playwrights and actors such as Samuel Phelps to renowned British novelists like George Orwell. Buildings along the street vary in character, with classic period conversions lining the street alongside developments which were built post world war two following the London bombings.
With Essex Road station at one end, residents can access West London and the City on the London Overground, and the London Underground (Victoria Line) can be boarded at Highbury & Islington station to the north. If the Northern Line is needed then Angel Tube station is a 10 minute walk away. London Buses also operate routes in the area, giving access to London Bridge, the City and West London.
There is plenty to do in the area, often you will find people taking a daily run through the green spaces of Canonbury Gardens, along the New River Path. For food lovers the Islington Smokehouse offers some of the best smoked and grilled food in London, and the Myddleton Arms offers a fine selection of wines and ales. Locals often pop in here for some traditional British pub grub.
Upper Street runs parallel to Canonbury Road. Here you will find a variety of fashionable bars, restaurants; both well-established chains and independents, cafes and boutiques. The area provides all the necessary amenities and supermarkets, high performing schools and a number of societies in which locals join.
