Blighty Coffee

Blighty Coffee

A coffee shop with a difference! Great food, lovely staff, quirky décor and even better coffee, all in the heart of Blackstock Road. There's a lounge area and garden, complete with an air-raid shelter and table tennis, which is the perfect place to hide away from the hustle and bustle of Finsbury Park. It's more than a coffee shop, Blighty is a community.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Finsbury Park, Highbury, Holloway, Newington Green, Canonbury, Tufnell Park, Stoke Newington, Archway, Caledonian Road and De Beauvoir Town

"The original main route through Holloway was for driving cattle to the meat market at Smithfield. The route was in such disrepair by the late 1200s, that the Bishop of London built a new toll road that is now the route of the A1."

North London remains for me the essence of London living...urban and innovative against a backdrop of centuries of history...

About Arsenal

Arsenal is a quiet residential area located in Highbury, north-central London. Arsenal tube station is on the Piccadilly Line in Zone 2 between Holloway Road and Finsbury Park. Originally known as Gillespie Road, it was renamed in 1932 after Arsenal Football Club, who at the time played at the nearby Arsenal Stadium. It is the only Tube station named directly after a football club. The station is located in a residential area, away from any main roads, and is considerably less busy than other stations on the same stretch of line.
