An up-and-coming neighbourhood annotated with period properties in close proximity to some of the best-loved areas of north London

You’d be forgiven for not knowing the residential benefits of Holloway; for many years the area was notorious for its women's prison, but those days have certainly passed. Nowadays Holloway is looked at as an up-and-coming neighbourhood that’s just four miles from Central London and in close proximity to some of London’s most sought after zones – namely Highbury and Islington. It’s worth noting, too, that the development of Arsenal football club’s stadium has pumped money into the area, enabling regeneration and attractive development within the community.

Aside from the busy main road, Holloway is a neighbourhood with a lot to offer. It has an abundance of streets packed with fine housing stock; a wealth of elegant Victorian houses that are perfect for young families looking for something more cost efficient that the neighbouring communities. In fact, in addition to families, the area seems to be attracting everyone from students at London Metropolitan University to young professionals wanting new build apartments – Holloway is a neighbourhood with a lot to offer.

In terms of green and leisure space, the 790-acre Hampstead Heath is just a mile away, and there is also, Finsbury Park, Highbury Fields, and Gillespie Park which are all within walking distance and can offer some tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle.

There’s no shortage of transport options for residents; there are four underground stations in the Holloway area with services running on the Piccadilly line, Victoria line, and Northern Line. There is also a good choice of National Rail trains from Upper Holloway, which offer super-fast travel times to central London.
