This pub has an amazing history, as it used to be a creamery (hence the name!) and is in a stunning building. Food is great and it has just had a refurb, so is a lovely place to go any time of the day.

"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."

Highgate's elegant properties complement its charming high street and leafy surroundings.

Peeking out from behind the trees in Waterlow Park is an impressive view of London.

Highgate High Street has an amazing selection of upmarket shops, cafes and restaurants - I love being in the centre of them all!

What locals say about Upper Holloway

  1. I have lived in Upper Holloway for 8 months now; well, since I moved to London from Canada. The nearby streets are lined with late Victorian houses which adds to the history of the area. I really like the place, my residential street is very quiet, and it's only 4 minutes walk from Holloway Road and 10 minutes from Archway station, very convenient for commuting to job, going out in trendy Upper Street or buzzing West End. Honestly, I cannot complain about the area, it's clean throughout and people do their best to keep the smile : )
