The Canonbury Tavern

The Canonbury Tavern

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.

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.

The Arsenal

Perfect stop for any Arsenal fan! Underneath the railway lines at Finsbury Park, it is open all of the time, not just match days.

"27 Canonbury Square became the residence of famous novelist George Orwell after bombing forced him out of his home in St John's Wood in 1944."

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

What locals say about N5

  1. I really like living in Arsenal because of the nice restaurants and cafes, the friendly people and the general feel of the area. The transport links are also great too!

  2. I love the park, highbury fields, the tennis courts and how local it feels but with such a close distance to Central

  3. Best transport links, great pubs and restaurants and the greatest football team in the world.

  4. The green is buzzy, fun and full of life... and culture.
