Our corner of London; the huddle and bustle of life moving

What I like lost about my area is the overall togetherness of the community; most people know eachother which makes a normal walk to the shop a friendly pleasant affair. One of my children has grown here from young and everyone knows who he is. He feels safe around here and I feel safe him being around here. It’s a lovely area with a good energy, there is always something fun to do with someone fun!! I also think that people in this area are willing to pull together to help at important times. One more thing, the staff at the local schools are amazing!!

Transport

There are three main train stations within close proximity to one another; Highbury and Islington, Essex road and angel. One is a tube station, one is national rail and one is all. So it is very easy to get to many different places. As with the busses there are many different routes that carry you in every direction. For example you can get a 56 from Islington to Leighton. Or a bus from Islington to Tottenham. A very wide range. I have never had a problem, delays are minimal and there is usual an alternate route. Generally the under ground and public transport are kept clean and presentable. Night buses are on a timetable but they come regular enough so as never to get stranded!!

Community

The parking in Islington isn’t great if you do not have your own permit, but there are options. You can purchase visitor permits for different increments of time. So it doesn’t have to be a lonely affair. The noise lever on my road is not bad atall but sometimes you can hear the huddle and nuzzle of Essex road if something large is happening. The are is a fair mix between owners and renters, with majority families or couples. The bins are collected regular and areas kept tidy.

Amenities

Islington is a lovely up and coming area. There are three stations within close proximity to one another which is very efficient. For convenience, there are a number of corner shops dotted around, there is also a number of different supermarkets for a good range on the monthly food shop. I would say Islington is best for its entertainment and food/drink; upper street is home to up and coming talents with life music shows. There are also a wide range of restaurants and bars to eat and drink your fill, from pubs to Nando’s to a fancy Italian and some cocktails. Islington is a lively place to live

London’s most desirable postcode

I like the fact that N1 is very central, but still has quite a town-like feel to it (i.e. the atmosphere here is very different from that in the City). I also love the wide range of shops, parks and wining/dining spots in this area. It’s very hard to get bored here! Also just lovely to live in such a beautiful place with such stunning architecture. Even just a walk around the block is a treat for the eyes! There’s not much I dislike, although I will say that there is a slight lack of diversity here (i.e. residents are predominantly white and middle-class, and these are the people whose needs/budgets the local establishments tend to cater to). Lack of big green spaces, as mentioned before, but the little parks dotted around the place, as well as the canal, mostly make up for this. In general, N1 has quite a trendy, upmarket atmosphere, without being too alienating to those who don’t fit into the “white, middle class” bracket. Lots of students and young professionals live here, and the layout of flats (which tend to be in converted houses, rather than apartment blocks) allows for more mingling between neighbours. Some areas, such as Essex Road, have a slightly less gentrified feel to them, but this is quite refreshing, and not something I’d necessarily want to see changed any time soon. This area is definitely suitable for children and pets, and I almost never feel unsafe here, even when out and about late at night. Streets are well lit, and crime rates are, as far as I know, relatively low. Overall, it’s a joy to live here, and I’d recommend this area to anyone!

Transport

Regular and reliable buses (including night buses from places like Victoria), and plenty of stops, so you won’t usually have to walk too far. Angel tube station is within this postcode, and is on the Northern line (usually reliable, efficient and clean, but best to avoid during rush hour). Essex Road (also in this area) is a National Rail station and is also on the Northern City Line (handy for commuters). Highbury & Islington station is also within walking distance and is on the Victoria and Northern City Lines, as well as being served by two Overground lines. National Rail trains depart from here too. King’s Cross and St Pancras International both a short walk from this area. No cycle lanes on the main roads, so if you can’t use the quieter side streets, you’ll just have to brave it and share road space with the buses. (Some accidents have happened in recent times, though, so there is definitely work to be done here.)

Community

Free parking all day Sunday; bins collected once a week; low crime rates and generally very safe atmosphere; two pubs on the street, plus a pharmacy, GP surgery, launderette and two corner shops just around the corner. Totally shielded from traffic noise, and next to Regent’s Canal. The street is almost entirely occupied by renters, as I’m aware – mostly people in their 20s and 30s (students and young professionals), but some couples, families and older residents.

Amenities

Lots of great shops, restaurants and bars, and a nice mixture of chains and independent establishments. Most of the main supermarkets can be found here (including a Sainsbury’s superstore). Lots of corner shops, too, if you need to nip out for a bottle of milk. As for open spaces, there are many lovely parks dotted around the place (many of them hidden away down quieter streets), and Regent’s Canal, plus the New River Walk, offers tranquil walking routes. Particularly popular areas include Camden Passage (home to dozens of indie shops and eateries), Upper Street (again, lots of great pubs and indie establishments to be found here, plus some great charity shops), and Regent’s Canal (especially busy in the summer, when locals come to enjoy evening drinks by the water’s edge). There aren’t many amenities missing in this area. Some might be put off by the lack of big open spaces, but Barnard Park and Shoreditch Park should be enough to satisfy most residents’ needs – and besides, Hampstead Heath, Victoria Park and The Regent’s Park are just a short tube ride away.

Everything you could possibly need is only a ten minute walk away.

There isn't really a cohesive feel - everyone sort of hangs around with their own group, and some of the shops etc. simply aren't geared towards people like me. There's too much litter, and too many betting shops.

Transport

Links to the the city are great! Amos Grove underground isn't fare away, and new Southgate railway station is locally available too. Bowes road is on on of the main bus routes into London City, and buses are frequent and quick.

Community

It's the amenities. Everything is on my doorstep, with amazing transport links to the city readily available. Everything you could possibly need is only a ten minute walk away.

Amenities

It's a pretty urbanised area with a lot of traffic. There's a decent-sized Sainsbury's local nearby, and we have all the usual amenities such as a post office, dentist and a Costa coffee. There are a few churches, and assorted takeaways and curry shops etc. We could probably do with more green spaces, and a couple of decent pubs.
