Victorian villas and little antique shops lend amiable charm to this north London neighbourhood.

Echoes of powerful voices reverberate through Canonbury’s brownstone flats and cobblestone streets. Literary giants lend this north London neighbourhood a certain esteem – Canonbury claims George Orwell amongst its long list of famous residents. Rather than self-promotion, Canonbury relies on the subtle allure of its gable-roofed houses and back-woodsy riverwalk to attract attention.
Schools are great, pubs are cracking and travelling is easy.

Idyllic in Islington - The Small-Town Charm of Canonbury

Canonbury is an attractive leafy residential area (Mrs Clarke prefers it to Barnsbuy – although Mr Clarke was brought up in Barnsbury so you won’t see him agreeing). For shoppers, the focus is Cross Street which is home to an eclectic mix of shops and is just off Upper Street. Trullo – our favourite restaurant of all time – can be found tucked away amongst the tree lined streets of central Canonbury.
Art lovers can spend hours poring over the modern Italian art collection at the Estorick Collection known internationally for its core of futurist works as well as figurative art and sculpture dating from the 1890’s to the 1950’s.
Canonbury’s residents also enjoy easy access to the Victoria line at Highbury & Islington station which whisks you to the West End in under fifteen minutes, whilst Canonbury Overground station provides a useful east/west connection across the capital.
