Chadwell Street is a lovely no through road which sits between the picturesque Myddelton Square and St. John Street in Islington. The buildings here are largely four storey houses that have been cleverly converted into flats, many retain mezzanine levels and communal gardens. The buildings carry the typical Georgian design, with their sash windows and colourful panelled front doors. The traditional lamps that once would have lit the street with gas flame remain and add to the overall feel of the area.
For those that enjoy the famed ‘Boris Bikes’ you will enjoy the fact that there is a cycle hire station in the middle of the street, cutting off any through traffic from the busy St John Street. There are plenty of parking bays here, mostly for residents only with a permit from Islington council, although a number of pay and display bays are available.
There is no shortage of things to do nearby. Sadler’s Wells Theatre is moments away on Rosebery Avenue, producing and receiving critically acclaimed dance productions. Upper Street is nearby with its collection of fashionable bars, restaurants and boutique coffee shops, and the gastro pub haven of Exmouth market is a short 10 minute stroll away. The popularity of the area draws a variety of people, from young professionals to families big and small, added to the fact that Clerkenwell Church of England and also Hugh Myddelton Primary Schools are close by. There are a number of students here too, with City University London on the doorstep.
Chadwell Street itself offers a convenient location, close enough to all the goings-on in the area but set back off the main road to avoid any hectic traffic and crowds. Supermarkets are nearby, and a number of dining and drinking options, adding to the draw of this prime central Islington location.
