I'm so glad I moved to this area

Many people think you can't have a sense of community in London but this area has taught me that this is wrong. If you put the effort in, you can build great relationships with your neighbours and local community. It's such a joy to have local friends, especially during Covid.

Transport

There are a huge amount of bus options available in the area, considering the fact we have several important roads running through. There are also a good amount of nightbus routes running through. We also have overground links and the Piccadilly line. Victoria line and Northern line are not far as well. There are always a good range of hireable bikes littering the street! I have never had a problem with the transport in the area.

Community

I don't drive but when drivers visit, I don't usually have any difficulty finding them a spot. I can use council vouchers for visitors in cars. Bins are collected weekly and we have the option to separate food waste as well as recycling and general rubbish. On my road there is a mix of families and shared houses. There are the right amount of people that have lived in the area for ages to give the place a community feeling. I take part in some volunteer activities in my community and I've found everyone to be very welcoming.

Amenities

Holloway is a great area for shops and other amenities. On Seven Sisters Road there is a massive Morrisons with a car park. There is also the Nags Head market where there are lots of grocers and a halal butcher and fishmonger. Further along the street there is a Cypriot grocer which does a really good range of vegetables and fruit at good prices. At the junction of Hornsey Road there is Hua Run, a Chinese supermarket which crams a large range of goods into a small space. Nags Head market and the corner of Hornsey and Seven Sisters are also home to two food stall areas. These mini restaurants offer takeaway and some have seating. They're honestly such amazing quality, value and range of cuisines. I was so delighted when I discovered them. Aside from food, Seven Sisters Road Holloway also has a lot of other useful shops. You can buy textiles and craft supplies, get your phone fixed and buy various cables, get a deal on furniture at the BHS shop, and find cheap things at Poundland. Every weekend a large car boot sale is held in a car park just off the Seven Sisters Road and it's such fun wandering around. The pubs are generally fine, but the Swimmer is a great pub with some outside space and board games. I suppose two drawbacks of the area are the actual Seven Sisters Road and Holloway Road. They are very busy arterial roads. On the other hand though, you can catch a bus to pretty much anywhere! There are lots of little parks scattered about but there isn't a big open space as far as I'm aware. All in all I think this area has everything you'd need and more.

Islington. Great transport links and accessible to many surrounding areas.

Islington is a great area that provides the feel of inner London but slightly removed from the hectic aspects of being in Zone one. Good set of green spaces too. Some parts of Islington could do with some revitalising and regeneration but overall it meets all the needs. Lived here for over 25 years. Couldn’t imagine living else where.

Transport

Great set of transport links. Many stations nearby giving connectivity to Piccadilly, Victoria, Northern and Overground. Very well connected area. Many bus routes available also.

Community

Parking can be a bit of a nuisance if not a resident. No real issue with anti social behaviour. A mix set of neighbours from young professionals, students and families.

Amenities

A good range of local shops. Holloway offers all the necessary amenities needed. Waitrose and Morrison’s close by. A number of bank branches too.

What i most like about my area is that all my friends don’t live too far from me and the areas we do meet up at are quite close to me. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday the markets are very packed, however we still behave as civilised human beings which is certainly a great factor. I would say some places are in need of regeneration as they have been around for quite a long time. There is a park for children that even allows them to interact socially, furthermore across that park is a nursery so the area is very suitable for children. There is also a grass area where you can take your pet!

Transport

Bus stations are quite regularly dirty, however there is rarely any traffic and different bus stations have many buses you can take. Furthermore, there is a train station if your willing to travel long distances. However, at night there can be some people who seem sketchy and engage in illegal activities around the bus stations so be wary.

Community

There is a range of parking availability and bin collection are quite regularly so you won’t see trash overflowing from the bins! Anti-social behaviour is quite rare, however a lot of pro social behaviour goes on and this community helps each other in many different ways. Most people that live on my street are in fact renters.

Amenities

My local area is quite the place! There is a range of places to eat from as well as sports grounds where you are able to engage in social activities. There is a variety of different cultured restaurants and so you can always eat something different! However, there can be quite some unpleasant people who engage in illegal activities around the area so be wary.
