The great thing about this superb apartment is its location. Built in 1774, it is adjacent to the buzz of one of London’s “destination streets” (Upper Street), one minute from the underground (Victoria line), and on Highbury Fields, which London's colourful mayor, Boris Johnson calls 'the jewel of our borough, positively bursting with artistic and cultural delights' and where he plans to make good his new year's resolution to lose a stone. The apartment's proximity to the underground and its excellent connections, makes it the perfect place to come home to. Part of an historic Grade II listed terraced house, it has recently (February 2010) been completely re-decorated, and is modernised to a high standard. Our guests frequently comment on its attractive “feel” and many make return visits. We are very happy to arrange a taxi from the airport if required. Please note this is a non-smoking apartment.

The apartment is in north London but central enough to be a great base for exploring all of London's sites and perhaps the odd day trip out of town. There is too much to mention about London here; so please let us know if you have any specific questions and if you want to find out about journey times to various places and attractions.
It takes 25 minutes to get to Buckingham Palace by tube!
Located in fashionable Islington, home to award-winning restaurants, fashion and food shops, this attractive apartment is on the top (third) floor of an 18th century Georgian townhouse. Less than a minute from the tube (Victoria line) it overlooks the beautiful green space of Highbury Fields, while being 10 minutes from Oxford Street and the West End. The famous Almeida Theatre, Sadler’s Wells dance theatre and cinemas are on the doorstep, and the nearest Tesco supermarket is just 5 minutes walk. An ideal base for exploring London, the apartment is also perfectly placed for day trips to Paris. Just one tube stop away is the iconic, beautifully refurbished St Pancras station (stop off at Europe’s longest champagne bar before you leave), and the dazzling new arts and music venue, Kings Place. It is also very close to Arsenal football club Emirates stadium.
