The safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority and so we have taken the difficult decision to close our network of Foxtons branches. We are very much open for business and our remote team is working hard to make sure that all of our customers receive a high level of service either over the phone, by email or via our My Foxtons online platform.
Whether you are looking for some advice or partway through a move, we remain here to support in any way we can.
Please see our current guidelines if you need to contact a specific team here at Foxtons.
Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

Amazing place, so small that you may miss it if it isn't recommended! A family run business close to Highbury Barn, perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner. They have now started doing jazz nights on a Thursday too.

Canonbury has lovely character, lots of established trees and well maintained houses and streets. Feels very safe and secure, and lots of cute pubs around that creates cosy and fun atmosphere. I'm here on a temporary visa and feel Canonbury definitely gives off the true London experience you come for. Also transport links are amazing, overground is so relaxing and chilled and Victoria line is brilliant.

Canonbury is a residential district in the London Borough of Islington in the north of London. It is roughly in the area between Essex Road, Upper Street and Cross Street and either side of St Paul's Road. In 1253 land in the area was granted to the Canons of St Bartholomew's Priory, Smithfield and became known as Canonbury. The area continued predominantly as open land until it was developed as a suburb in the early 19th century. In common with similar inner London areas, it suffered decline when the construction of railways in the 1860s enabled commuting into the city from further afield. The gentrification of the area from the 1950s included new developments to replace war-damaged properties in Canonbury Park North and South as well as restoration of older buildings. East Canonbury is the south-eastern corner of the district, bordering on the Regents Canal. Parts of this area were transferred to the district from the London Borough of Hackney in a boundary adjustment (along the line of the northern tow-path of the canal), in 1993.
