Holloway Rd, N7 6NJ

Ugly but convenient place to live

Really ugly but super convenient place to live. A bit dodgy but fine.

Transport

Very convenient. We've got the tube, overground and buses all nearby. Cleanliness is average for London transport (not great, but bearable). I don't drive, but Holloway Road is always very busy. Holloway Road is also a bit terrifying to cycle down though so cycle lanes there could be nice. There are good cycle routes somewhat parallel though which is great. It's very convenient to cycle down to the city centre. More bike shelters would be appreciated though. Storing all your housemates' bikes in the flat and bringing them up and down the stairs everyday can be a hassle and the area is definitely not safe enough to lock them up outside.

Community

Bin collections are fine. They always come on time and you just leave everything outside you house. Not really sure who actually lives on this street. There are always a lot of old guys doing not much but sitting on the benches and talking to one another all day. A lot of South Asian families as well I think. The men are also on the street benches a lot. That community feeling is quite nice I guess. (Though it's not one I'm particularly part of.)

Amenities

Great selection of supermarkets and I particularly love the wet market on seven sisters' road. They're mostly small grocers run by local Asian families and they have a really great (and cheap!) selection of produce including things that are harder to find in chain supermarkets. And unlike the typical "indie" type of food stores, they're cheap and not pretentiously posh or overpriced. It's not pretty and a bit chaotic but it does remind me of the outdoor markets at home in the Philippines. There are lots of restaurants around too that are decently priced. They're all really diverse in origin which is fun, and the food is pretty good. In terms of open spaces, there are a good number of parks. Finsbury Park is a bit dodgy at night but it's big. Highbury fields is a bit nicer. There's also the really lovely Parkland walk that's just this random corridor of green between Finsbury Park all the way to Hampstead Heath. It's like a little country walk in the middle of London... Arsenal Stadium is actually quite a fun hangout space in and of itself. It's always fun to just walk around and look at the skaters and random workout classes going on, and there's shelter from the rain which makes for a good back-up plan for meeting people outdoors during these COVID times. There's Islington library nearby, it's well-connected to public transport, and there's even a sports and leisure centre so really no amenities I can think of that are missing. The only thing I can think of is that it's really not the prettiest area and that all these things are usually by quite busy roads (i.e. Holloway Road and Seven Sisters Road) but I guess it keeps things relatively cheap.

Great central location and lots to do

Always feel safe coming home and that everything you need is so close

Transport

Transport is also really good as very close to highbury and Islington tube for Victoria line, Piccadilly line stations of Holloway Road and arsenal as well as national rail (brand new trains) direct into the city. Highbury is becoming more cycle friendly with the new layouts on Highbury corner and cycle lanes being added to existing roads with the low traffic neighbourhood plans being implemented.

Community

Parking usually available with the exception of match days where it is a little harder. There is a mixture of owners and renters who need to be close to the city to work. Plenty of families around too.

Amenities

Great range of local restaurants from delicious high end to tasty fast bites. Lots of high street shops down upper street and Holloway Road and boutiques scattered around too. Great parks such as Highbury fields nearby and Clissold park a 20 min walk away.

Good Price/Value Ratio and Conveniently Connected to Central London

Essentially, Holloway has a good price/value ratio if you want to live near Central London. High Street is not the best looking one but I guess that's a reasonable compromise in exchange of what you get.

Transport

Railway can sometimes get noisy as trains usually pass by every 10-15 minutes. However, living close to both Piccadilly Line and Victoria Line is very useful for transportation.

Community

If there's no match in Arsenal Stadium, it is actually very quiet area. The street is always clean as it is a dead end with no traffic.

Amenities

Highbury Fields is a great park to spend some green time. Apart from M&S and Asda, we all supermarkets nearby: Waitrose, Morrisons, Co-Op, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Lidl, Poundland etc. It can get quite noisy and crowded during match days though.
