Just 0.3 miles away from Angel station you will find the quaint tree-lined Danbury Street. Danbury Street is regarded as one Islington's most outstanding streets and as a result is a popular choice for people looking to move to the area. Families and retirees make up the majority of residents here, as they are drawn to the area for its location and proximity to Angel, Upper Street and the City, King's Cross and the West End just a short trip away. This location is also ideal for the restaurants, shops and transport facilities that can be found nearby.
Conveniently tucked away behind busy Upper Street, the location doesn’t get much better than this. Upper Street is on four bus routes that can take residents to King’s Cross, Old Street, the City, London Bridge, Holborn and the West End. Angel station on the Northern Line is just a few minutes’ walk away and has Moorgate, Bank/Monument and London Bridge all within four stops. King’s Cross St Pancras is only one station away and from there you will find links to the rest of London, the UK and Europe via Eurostar.
If you’re looking to meet the locals then you can head to one of the two pubs located along this street. The Earl of Essex is a friendly bar that has a great selection of beers and hearty meals that can be enjoyed in the beer garden or air-conditioned rooms in the summer months. The Duke of Cambridge is the other, and captures the spirit of a modern London pub brilliantly. It is often jam-packed and has a really nice vibe with the main drawcard being its elegant restaurant. Take your pick of meals from their inspired daily blackboard menu.
If you’re looking to park your car nearby you’ll be lucky to find a bay that’s not for residents only. However if you arrive after 6:30pm all spaces are up for grabs. If you’re after a permit then the Islington council can help you out.
Most of the houses found here are early Victorian, with the majority lived in and lovingly cared for by the current owners. The main attraction of this location is Regent’s canal, which can be found at the end of the street. This canal provides alternative routes to work for walkers and cyclists and its peaceful scenery grants a breath of fresh air to all.
