Thornhill Square is a picturesque square in the heart of Barnsbury area of Islington. The houses along here are typical Georgian terraces that line either side of the central gardens, arching into the crescent shape that the Georgians have become known for towards the southern end of the square. With the green space at the centre point of this area, and the Barnsbury Woods Nature Reserve nestled behind the houses, this is a wonderful place to live.
The area is known for its high sense of community, with several organisations set up by the locals. Perhaps the most well established is the Thornhill Square Association, set up to contribute towards living in the immediate area. The Association hosts regular events and keeps residents up to date with regular newsletters, as well as representing them in the broader community. This set up makes for an ideal living location in London, giving a real village feel where everyone knows each other and enjoys a friendly neighbourhood.
With regards to transport, people like this location for the proximity to excellent connections. The Caledonian Road & Barnsbury Overground station is the closest, just a short 3 minute walk, while a 15 minute stroll will bring you to Highbury & Islington station or Caledonian Road tube station. To the south, King’s Cross provides the ultimate transport hub for commuters. Parking is mainly for residents who have a permit, although there are a few pay and display bays along the street.
There is no lack of choice when it comes to the local amenities. Caledonian Road, or ‘Cally Road’ as it is affectionately known by the locals, runs to the west of Thornhill Square, and Upper Street is 10 minutes to the East. Along both these roads residents can find a wide selection of bars, fashionable restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets.
