Overview

The south border of this area near the City and Clerkenwell is made up mostly of Victorian limestone rowhouses that come with a high price tag. The area around The Angel, Upper Street and Essex Road boasts art galleries and shops specializing in antiques and collectibles as well as many high pubs and cafes. To the north, the district grows less grand and is mostly lower-end residential in nature.

Finsbury Park is a large green space that offers a bit of everything: tree-lined avenues, an arboretum, playgrounds and formal gardens. It also includes a sports complex with football fields, a lawn bowling green, tennis and basketball courts, and even "American" sport amenities such as an American football field and baseball diamonds.
