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.

Transport

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.

Community

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.

Amenities

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.

the amenities, transport connections and small parks make it a lovely area to live

This can be an expensive area of London, but the amenities, transport connections and small parks make it a lovely area to live

Transport

Close to both Angel for Northern line and Highbury and Islington for multiple tube/overground/train lines. Lots of busses and walkable to the city. Traffic can be busy at angel intersection but the public transport options mean a car isn’t necessary.

Community

Bike paths, no buses, relatively quiet with traffic. Mix of professionals, young families and older residents. Bins collected daily in the areas classed as former commercial properties

Amenities

Great area to live. Lots of nice neighbourhood pubs, Upper street has all the shops you need for both essentials and clothes/gifts/homewares - big name brands and independent shops. Close to the city but has a community feel. New bike paths on many streets and lots of small parks for greenery.

Community

Amenities

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.
