Made up primarily of red brick buildings, with a few Georgian townhouses added to the mix, Canonbury Street highlights the beautiful and varied architecture that Islington and Hackney are known for.
Impressively, although Canonbury Street and the surrounding area gives off a quiet and relaxed vibe, it offers easy quick and easy transport links to most parts of London. Those who need to get to other business hubs in the capital can benefit from the choice of both Overground and Victoria lines via Highbury and Islington Tube station. There is also various bus routes that run past the adjacent road, with number 38 and 73 taking you straight into Victoria, and the 341 runs straight to Waterloo. City commuters can also hop on the train at Essex Road National Rail station, a short 5 minute train journey from Old Street, or catch the 56 to Barbican. While off-road parking is almost non-existent here, residents can easily apply to the local council to obtain an on-street parking permit.
Set back only a couple of roads from Islington Assembly Hall and Upper Street, Canonbury Street’s central location makes it an excellent option for professional sharers or mature students who wish to be just outside of the busyness. With an array of great primary and secondary schools (community and independent) in the immediate vicinity, including popular Canonbury Primary School, young families also flock to set up home in this picturesque area of Islington.
A reflective stroll along the willows that shade the New River walkway, a sunny afternoon spent in a pub garden or a wander down Upper Street - these are just a few of the past times residents here rcan enjoy. Sunny Sunday afternoons can be blissfully enjoyed sat on the patio at the historic Canonbury Tavern which has been newly renovated to provide a fantastic gastro pub menu. Local branches of popular supermarkets are just around the corner, further adding to the convenience of this road, while Islington’s main high street offers artisan bakeries, independent boutiques as well as cinemas and theatrical entertainment venues. A complete all-rounder, Canonbury has nudged its way to the top ranks of Londoner’s most desirable home destinations.
