Myddelton Passage, named after Hugh Myddelton who constructed the New River bringing fresh water from Hertford to London, is a picturesque cul-de-sac which runs between Myddelton Square and Arlington Way. On one side of the passage you have beautiful Georgian townhouse conversions, and on the other side you have the popular Nautilus Building development and its luscious well-kept gardens, where you can learn more about the history of the New River.
On-street parking is available at the westerly end of the passage, with permits avilable from the local council. Many residents of the Nautilus Building opt to use the parking within the development (which can also often be rented by those interested). Angel Northern Line station is less than a five minute walk away, while Farringdon station (Hammersmith & City, Circle and Metropolitan lines) is also only a stone’s throw away. Buses run from outside Sadler’s Wells. Buses are a fantastic way to get around, with direct links to Waterloo, King’s Cross and Liverpool Street. Boris Bikes can also be hired just up the road off of Myddelton Square.
With the City at your doorstep (and City University just across the way), Myddelton Passage is ideally located for young professionals and mature students alike. If it’s not just convenience you are looking for, the local area has lots of culture to take advantage of, with the world-renowned Sadler’s Wells theatre just around the corner, as well as the Islington Museum nearby. The 1,500 seat capacity main auditorium of the theatre that currently stands on the Sadler’s Wells sites was amongst the first projects to receive funding from the National Lottery, and hosts numerous international visiting companies as well as its own productions. Islington Museum, founded in 2008, is found in the basement of Finsbury Library and hosts a variety of collections relating to the history of the London borough.
The peaceful aura of Myddelton Passage that lets you escape the noise of nearby central London is one craved by many. With easy accessibility to the City as well as a fantastic choice of nearby restaurants, pubs and entertainment – it is easy to see why this area is so popular.
