The street itself is mainly made up of purpose built developments. There are a few local amenities here, including a dry cleaners. The selling point for this street is its proximity to everything that Islington has to offer. Firstly, Angel tube station is practically on the doorstep. Here you can be in the City within a few minutes, or at King’s Cross and St. Pancras station within one stop. With trains running on the Northern line here on average every two minutes, you’re never far away from where you need to be.
For buses, you can catch a number of routes from the intersection of Islington High Street, City Road, St. John Street and Pentonville Road. Links here head to the West End, Battersea, Waterloo, London Bridge, the City and Shoreditch.
There’s also Islington High Street and of course Upper Street, the main road in which runs through the spine of Islington. Here you will find a number of smart bars, fashionable retailers, boutique cafes and fine dining eateries. A personal favourite to Portico is the Bellanger, a new brasserie opened up by the creators of the Wolseley. If you prefer more of a retro bar feel, head over to the Wenlock and Essex bar on Essex Road.
Supermarkets are also within easy walking distance, with Liverpool Road having a number of well-known shops, and there are a number of convenience stores along the street too.
