"Despite HMP Holloway being a female-only prison, Oswald Mosely and his wife, both of whom were being held for being Nazi sympathizers during the war, were allowed to live in a cottage within the grounds after Winston Churchill personally intervened."

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