Halton Road sits in the Canonbury area of Islington, sandwiched between Essex Road at the southern section of the street and Canonbury Road at the northern section. There is a high number of addresses here due to the purpose built developments and red brick mansion blocks offering a large number of one and two bedroom apartments. Towards the Essex Road end there are a number of typical Georgian terraces, the Victorian architecture stands out in the middle of the street, with its terracotta brickwork.
The location is great for transport, being minutes away from a number of tube stations and National Rail stops. There is Essex Road station within a few minutes’ walk, Canonbury Station which is on the London Overground Line, Highbury & Islington and Angel stations operate on the Victoria Line and Northern Line respectively. London buses have regular services running along Canonbury Road and Essex Road, providing links to Shoreditch, the City, Camden and the West End. Residents here can also apply for a parking permit at the council offices which are only a short distance away.
People choose this location not only for the excellent transport links but also for the general amenities that the area has to offer. The nearby Upper Street is Islington's main high street and has a variety of bars, restaurants, cafes and boutique shops. There's also the Almeida Theatre which has established itself and a springboard for internationally acclaimed productions. The excellent schools nearby also make this a great place for young families.
For those looking to be near green spaces, Canonbury Gardens is just around the corner, a great place to spend sunny Sunday afternoons with a good book or perhaps taking a stroll along the New River Walk which runs through the heart of Canonbury. A great all round location for people who wish to be in the Islington area.
