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!
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.)
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.
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.
Angel - Living Up to its name, friendly, welcoming, and enjoyable
I really like how popular the area is in terms of things to do. There are plenty of open air markets, shopping, coffee shops, cafes, and stores. It's a really great area to just wander around in on the weekends and explore the local culture.
The nice part about living in my area is that I am a ten minute walk from three tube stations, and there are plenty of popular bus routes that head right into central London. I am only a fifteen minute bus ride from Oxford Street which makes it easy to be in central London fast. I love how easy and timely the buses are to use and I appreciate the convenience.
I appreciate the street that I live on because it is always bustling with friendly faces. We have couples, people walking their dogs, kids playing, and plenty of neighbours out and about. I tend to see police officers walking the beat past my building which I feel adds to the security of things too. We have plenty of parking, no traffic noises whatsoever, and there is space for the kids to play outside.
The local amenities in my area are above and beyond my expectations. I live close enough to Chapel Market, Angel, King's Cross, and the Coal Yards that I can always guarantee there is something new to do. It's great for people of all ages, including those with families. The Coal Yards on the weekend as well as Chapel Market usually have fresh markets, even when it rains. If you're looking for a spot for a hot cup of coffee or tea, there are plenty of local and chain cafes nearby. We are also never at a shortage for takeaway or sit in, so there is plenty to do with lockdown permitting. As a young professional, this area really ticks all he boxes for me. There is plenty of greenery and parks, as well as the canal which can bring you right to Camden on the weekends. It's a safe area, and I don't mind walking alone in the afternoon when it gets dark. I love the overall vibe that this neighbourhood provides, and I am extremely happy that I moved to this area.
Living in N1 is a wonderful place.
The area is suitable for children theirs a park with a big football pitch and swing set and a big green area . I I’d say it’s kinda safe :)
Where I live in n1 I can get buses from the cally or from the angel There is a bus that stops outside my house to bring me their
Their is a parking but you have to have a permit. When the collect from the bin you hardly hear them coming . Their isn’t my traffic nosies because I do t live on a main road
Living in N1 is a wonderful place. They are restaurants in the Angle as well as the market and a wild range of food shops.
Who needs a car as there are so many different bus routes and 2 tube stations
