City Road, Islington, EC1V

Properties to rent and for sale on City Road, Islington

Divided by two councils, with Islington in the northern part and Hackney to the south, City Road has plenty to offer its residents. The architecture along the street provides an excellent blend of contemporary new-build developments such as the new Lexicon building, Islington’s tallest building, and beautiful period properties and red brick mansion blocks. The road has undergone constant redevelopment through the years and today it is presented as one of Islington’s liveliest and most desirable areas to live.

Parking along City Road is a no go, although many of the newer buildings offer private underground spaces. For those living in the more classic conversions, a resident’s permit can be obtained from the local council for the surrounding streets. There are three London Underground stations nearby. Angel sits towards the top of City Road, Moorgate at the bottom, and in the centre you will find Old Street. The three stations provide locals with easy transport links across London. Bus routes include the number 43, 205, 394 and 214.

With the introduction of many developments along the road, you will find plenty of businesses as well as long-term residents in the area. In addition to these, the gentrification of parts such as Islington Canal Basin have seen old industrial estates turn into stylish residential buildings. Art houses and galleries have popped up in the streets around City Road, and coffee lovers will have no problem getting their daily fix. Locals with energy to burn can sign up to one of the many gyms, or enjoy long Sunday afternoon strolls along the canal.

City Road exudes Islington’s old school charm, while bringing in the fresh new excitement of the new developments and businesses. Packed out restaurants and cafes can be found towards Upper Street or in the vibrant Shoreditch social scene just to the East. This is undoubtedly one of the most happening areas in London.
