A mini City in itself, bursting with cocktails bars with funky names

I believe that the area is most appealing to the youth and those with disposable income to spare in order to enjoy all of the trendy bars and hipster cafes. The area is becoming increasingly stylish as it experiences a growing demand for luxury apartments for those young professionals. The area is safe for those who are young and vigilant, but I wouldn't declare it as safe for those elderly and vulnerable as pick-pocketing is common.

Transport

There are numerous easy and cheap routes into the main City (eg London Bridge, Waterloo) or toward the outer areas of London (eg Wood Green, Walthamstow). Buses are every 5-10 minutes and the Old St tube line offers Northern line services as well as the Northern City line. The cycle routes are chaotic as there are ongoing works by the Old St roundabout. Traffic is also an issue at present due to these development works.

Community

The street I live on is directly connected to main Old St which is very traffic dense during rush hour as it is a main route to the City. Therefore, traffic noise and sirens are often in earshot. Many small families and elderly people live in my street, most having lived in the area for many years. The local primary school offer easy access for families. Bin collections are reliable and on schedule 99% of the time. Litter and fly-tipping is occasionally an issue.

Amenities

I've lived in the area for many years and have seen how the breed of shops has changed. Most noticeably, there has been a surge of big names dominating the main streets – Wagamama and M&S to name a couple of recent new outlets – to appeal to the more affluent professionals attracted to the area as it undergoes development. Depending on your budget or occasion, there are a range of bars and restaurants to choose from that cater to all needs. Toward Shoreditch is where you'll find the more popular upmarket cocktails bars like Golden Bee and Old St Records, their exteriors heaving in the Summer evenings. Scattered throughout the area are plenty of cafes and coffee shops with friendly owners who love the vibe of the area. I'd like to see more spaces that pay homage to the area's rich history, like a statue of commemoration to historic figures linked to the area.

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.

Many young people live in the area as it is close to the heart of Shoreditch and many universities.

Atmosphere is tolerant and comprehensive to the vecinity of the lifestyle Shoreditch and the city give to the residents and commuters. Overall an average place where you can live and let others live with little to no repercussions.

Transport

Great commutation for public transport as old street station is just five minutes away walking. Traffic is peak at old street and gets caught up with traffic in the roundabout

Community

Parking is normally available although many have theirs spots booked already as its close enough to the city centre. Many young people live in the area as it is close to the heart of Shoreditch and many universities.

Amenities

Great commutation for public transport, several restaurants and well known franchises within walking distance. Supermarkets and local markets also available within walking distance. Missing out on bigger parks as there is only one, Shoreditch Park
