Nature's nest hidden in London

The area is very suitable for families with children and pets because of the Clissold park. The area has rich vegetation, minimal pollution and less than average crime rate. The atmosphere matches the bohemians and naturalist with a high than average income and single professionals that buddy up with at least one or two professionals to rent flats as the rent prices are quite high and on top of them is the very expensive council tax. However they will enjoy running in the park and being in a very close to the nature area with good transport connections.

Transport

The tube is quite far for a relatively elderly person. Arsenal Tube station is 13 mins away, Finsbury Park Station is ever farer. In terms of buses they are quite frequent (every 10 mins) and are well connected to the city centre (N19, 341, 141), clean, but they usually have delays or come 1-2 mins earlier. During rush hour is a challenge to be able to get into a bus as way many people than space. Night buses are frequent enough and reliable. The traffic is quite quite during the rush hours and create delays to the buses.

Community

Bin collections are quite regular, good quality of the air because of the rich vegetation, lots of squirrels and animals that make the area very pleasant and natural as opposed to the city centre. The anti-social behavious and sexual assaults are rare as opposed to other parts of London, the traffic noise is diminished by the vegetation. Most of the people in the area are renters, single professionals that share 2 double bedroom flats and mostly families with kids or pets. The area is too expensive for students.

Amenities

It is a relatively safe area with lots of families and pets as there is Clissold park in the neighbourhood. There are good bus connections to the city centre (19, 341, 141). Buildings are relatively old with poor roofs and isolation. The council tax is one of the most expensive in London and does not reflect the amenities of the area. There are plenty of grocery shops, supermarkets and post offices around. The quality of the area is good because of the rich vegetation. I only recommend the area if you are a professional with an above the average salary, if you have kids or pets.

Living in N5 is a total joy

Whilst north London has been our home for a while now, this area is quite new to us and what we have found is it’s excellent sense of community. Walks in nearby parks and along the streets are always a joy (especially when there’s dogs) and with so many local spots for something we always spoilt for choice on the best way possible.

Transport

All transport links within the area are absolutely fantastic, whether it’s by train or tube that you need to travel you always close to a station that can get you in London very quickly. Local bus routes are also a fantastic way of getting around North London, with some lovely views along the way.

Community

Our street is lovely and quiet, with an excellent community vibe. All neighbours we have interacted with are friendly, welcoming and just really great to stand and have a nice chat with.

Amenities

A fantastic range of local restaurants and shops nearby, with a particularly excellent stretch local bakeries up towards Highbury Grove. Also a particular recommendation for the pub the Bank of Friendship - a wonderful local that’s perfect in the Summer on the beer garden, but also in the Winter for a cozy dim light pint by the fire.

Finsbury park is popular

Transport

The undergraouds links to central london which is very useful . It's in between 20 to 25 minutes . Bus are also useful as they come around every 5 minutes . However there are so many construction going which makes transportation slow

Community

My area is usually noisy as there are different communities. However the best aspect is that is closer to my workplace and to shops . Transport link are good around .

Amenities

Finsbury park is popular as every year there are are festival were many people join in . Also some entertainment like fun fair or circus
