“It’s great near canals for walks or parks for exercise”
“I don’t like the park across the street as I think it attracts gangs and robberies.”
Seven minutes in Heaven, that’s N7.
What I most like about my area is that it has a variety of food spots which are Halal. I feel safe in my area as there is no obvious gang activity. The area is also well kept, the streets are regularly swept and there is no graffiti about. The area is suitable for children as there is a lot of green spaces for them to play in, a library with a dedicated children’s area and reputable schools for them to attend. It is also suitable for pets, as there’s green spaces to walk your dog. And we also have plenty of cats in the neighbour so you’re cat doesn’t have to be alone when they roam outside. It is hard to describe the atmosphere of my local area. It is not as trendy as Shoreditch but it does offer a good variety of food places. It doesn’t need regeneration as the area is clean and well kept, with plenty of different facilities people can go to. After consideration I would say it is upmarket as we do have some big houses along our street, even though we do have some block of flats/estates. But the amenities we have are of good quality such as the schools, shops, gyms and public transport. This make our area more desirable.
We have two main stations. The first is Highbury and Islington Station which has the overground service and the Victoria line. This stations is spacious and clean. And the trains usually run on time. And the second is Holloway Station which has the Piccadilly line. The cleanliness is lacking at this stations but again the service is regular and reliable. The main bus routes that come through are 43, 271, and 393. However, at peak times the busses can get packed quickly as school children and workers make their commute. We also have plenty of cycle routes with bollards along Liverpool road to make a protective barrier between the cars and cyclists.
Our bin collection is regular, usually every Tuesdays in the morning. There is hardly any anti-social behaviour as there is no gang activity. Traffic noise is also low but that’s because we’re not on a main road. Parking availability is good in the sense that every neighbour has an unwritten/unspoken designated parking spot. I would say half of the residents that live on my street are owners and the other half are renters. So a fair and even split. Most of the residents are families and we do have a few couples.
We have three large green spaces, these are Highbury Park, Paradise Park and Madras Place church yard. This means plenty of space to walk your dogs, to relax, to exercise, to play sports and to take your children out for fresh air. We also have St Mary Magdalene Church for our Christian residents. And we also have Lower Holloway Mosque for our Muslim residents. We also have Islington Central Library where you can loan books, dvds and cds. You can also use their computers, use their printing services and there is a dedicated children’s area for readying, studying and play. N7 is also home to St Mary Magdalene Academy. It is a nursery, primary school, secondary school and sixth form. It is one of the best performing schools in Islington. We also have a range of gyms these include Highbury Leisure centre which features pool facilities, Better Gym and Bodyjunkies. We have lots of food places, the big name brands include Subway, Nando’s, Costa, Pret A Manger, and McDonald’s. We also have independent food places/restaurants such as the Hope Workers cafe serving full English breakfast. We also have restaurants offering Caribbean cuisine, Greek cuisine, Chinese cuisine, Indian cuisine and Italian cuisine which offer authentic Italian pizza like Zia Lucia. We also have plenty of takeaway chicken and chips shops, corner shops and a chippy. A lot of these food places are Halal which is convenient for Muslim residents. We also have Cookies and Scream which is a vegan and gluten free bake shop. We also have a laundromat. We also have Shell petrol station for when you need to top up your car. And we also have a Post Office. For grocery shopping we can just go further up Holloway Road where there is a big Morrison’s, Waitrose, Iceland and Lidl. We also have medium sized Tesco and Sainsbury’s in the N7 vicinity. We also have clothes shops like New Look, Peacock, James Selby's and Shoezone. We also have Boots and Superdrug’s. And we have an Argos. Overall N7 has a good range and quality of local shops. The amenities which are missing are a mechanics and a car wash service.
It’s great near canals for walks or parks for exercise
It’s great near canals for walks or parks for exercise, close to busy central so great for work and such a chilled area vibe and really nice friendly people, the only problem I have had here is with how the local council are with some services and feel it could be kept abit cleaner
Close to 3 different tube lines, next to the overground and with 24 hour busses it’s a great spot to live, only takes 10 minutes to central and can get there 24/7. There are parks all about to do exercise and cycle about the only disappointment is that the public transport is very dirty even at Highbury and Islington they have just done the referb to the station and it’s still very dirty and not what it should be for the money and time spent on it
Parking is ok if you have a resident permit, if you have friends come over then it’s a nightmare as parking is so expensive for them. The bin collection is once a week and the bin men are useless each week all the neighbours have to put the rubbish outside on the street or they won’t take all the rubbish from the bins they will usually leave half, I’m always complaining to the council about it but the problem never is resolved It’s a very safe area never had any problems, sure there are problems but tbh compared to other parts of London it’s a very safe place Traffic noise is ok It’s a mixed street from owners to renters to students to council tenants and it’s a great friendly street
N1 is between all ranges of shops from cheap selection of foods and house hold goods on hollow way road to little local upper end shops near angel that offer more organic ranges l, as for restaurants in Angel you can walk down the high stress and can choose a place to eat any food from any part of the world 🌍, or more towards Holloway there are a lot of halal places to eat
I don’t like the park across the street as I think it attracts gangs and robberies.
Lots of pets in the area and in the park which can be good for socialising and getting active
It’s very close to Highbury and Islington station which is continent to take you into central London. Also Caledonian and Holloway Road station for the underground isn’t far. The 153 bus is very close that goes around the backstreets along with all the other busses on the main road which are frequent, especially in rush hour, and there are nightbusses which are less frequent.
Many families live here, there’s close primary schools and secondary schools so lots of children in the area. Not much traffic but the roads tend to get busier in rush hour.
I live right next to a park, paradise park, which is nice however there’s a lot of trouble with phone snatching and robberies that take place there. The local shops are okay, not too far from Tesco express. There’s not many bars in Holloway, but it’s not too far from angel and kings cross. The i don’t really eat in many restaurants nearby apart from a few as they’re not the best in my opinion.
Public transport- best highlight and very accessible.
