Noel Road is a street with two halves – literally – it is split down the middle by St. Peter’s Street. The east part of the road is stereotypical of a Georgian Street, symmetrical terraces three storeys high, with panelled front doors, flat roofs and cast iron railings. The west part of the street is completely covered in large leafy trees, with traditional houses having been converted or extended upwards. There’s also a few newer buildings, and a great pub on the corner.
Location wise it is ideal, especially for transport. The Angel tube station is no more than 5 minutes away when walking, giving resident’s access to the Northern Line on the London Underground. Old Street is about 10 minutes down City Road, and buses operate in the immediate area regularly. Residents parking is also available on the street and a permit can be purchased from Islington Council on the not so far away Upper Street.
Nearby is the St. Peter’s Medical Practice, and there are several schools in the area making this a good option for those with children. There are a number of pubs and bars on the surrounding roads, including the Duke of Cambridge Pub. Here you can enjoy food and drink from Britain’s first and only organic pub, or you can join the locals for the weekly quiz night or wine club at the Island Queen pub which is on Noel Road itself.
If you fancy some high end bars or fine dining, Upper Street is a short stroll from Noel Road. Here you can enjoy a selection of international cuisine, from Thai to Turkish, Indian to Indonesian. If a quiet cup of coffee and a good book is more your scene then there’s no lack of option for this either. On sunny afternoons you’ll find joggers and cyclists along the canal. With so much going on this is a really great location to settle yourself down for London life.
