The set-back original Georgian townhouses that line Pentonville Road were made famous by John O’Connor’s 1884 painting. Although now vastly different, these magnificent homes still give this road its Islington charm. Amongst these period properties also lie more grand detached villas and modern university halls.
Buses have been servicing this large street that runs between Angel and King’s Cross since 1829. Nowadays you can catch the 30, 73, 205, 214, 395 and 476 which will take you to Euston, Victoria, Soho and Highgate. Some of the developments along this road, including Claremont Heights, offer their resident’s private parking however on street parking is a little scarce. Most residents opt to cycle or walk to the City or alternatively catch the tube from either Angel or King’s Cross St Pancras stations.
With part of the SOAS campus nestled behind this road, Pentonville Road is a popular choice amongst students as well as recent graduates. With King’s Cross just down the road offering access to all over the city and beyond, this street offers its residents fantastic access to all that London has to offer including bars, restaurants and clubs such as Scala which is found just at the end of the road. However it is not only young sharers who make this area their home. Although Pentonville Road is one of the main routes into the city, it still maintains its homely vibe with a couple of green gardens such as the Joseph Grimaldi Park, being tucked in behind the road.
Set between the hustle and bustle of King’s Cross and the quieter fashionable Angel area, Pentonville Road is a blend of Islington and Bloomsbury providing both lively entertainment and convenience to those who live along it.
