"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."

Holloway Road has great connections to central London along the Piccadilly line.

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

What locals say about Holloway and surrounding areas

  1. I love Newington Green because of the close community and village atmosphere. The proximity to Clissold and Church Street is handy, but Newington Green has most of what you need. This part of Green Lanes is really changing for the better and it's an exciting place to go now!
