Highbury is a leafy oasis in north-central London within the London borough of Islington, boasting fine Victorian buildings and perfectly located for access to both the traditional attractions of London, The West End, The financial district in the City and the newer creative areas within East London. Nearby within walking distance we have many excellent cafés , restaurants, parks and shops. For the Football fans there is the Emirates Stadium and the famous Arsenal Football club and easy transport access to the Olympic Stadium . There is also a modern well equipped Gym and large indoor pool within walking distance and a great park for jogging in.
Public transport could not be easier with an array of options in tube, bus, overground and of course taxis. Buses run from the end of our street giving quick access to the West End theatres and to the wonderful markets at Spitalfields Market, Broadway Market, Brick Lane and the glorious Columbia Row Flower Market. We are also very close to St Pancreas International for easy connection on Eurostar. London Airports also have easy transport connections. The nearest tube stations are Highbury & Islington and Arsenal Station. There is also an overground at Canonbury.
More than happy to pick you up from Highbury & Islington or Arsenal Stations, if I am available. It is also possible I can arrange economical car and driver for airport pick up...
Any other questions just ask!

I often get asked are you close to city centre? It is important to understand that London is a sprawling metropolis, no one area is going to be next door to all the attractions, but our location is at a very good central point to explore most of London's regular and new attractions especially by bus where you can adventure out and enjoy a unique London experience.
The large spacious House is shared with me, my partner Hilary, and sometimes present two teenage children and of course Montague our big fluffy, occasionally mischievous Persian cat and obviously not designed as a party space (although we do throw the occasional bbq if the weather gods allow), we are friendly, professional and easy going, working in the creative industries. We are here to ensure your stay is a memorable one. Oh and no smoking in house please, I once many years back had someone nearly burn my house down when they fell asleep smoking in bed! Its probably the only issue I am a bit tetchy with!
I'm a laid back well-traveled guy with discerning taste. I run a small business in creative design based manufacturing and anArts Events Centre. Chatty outgoing and friendly. I have traveled most of the world, but still love my birth city and its kaleidoscope of people and places. I have a passion for the arts and have a love of writing, music, art and design. My wife Hilary works in Fashion, we both love to dine in and venture to restaurants and cafes and places of interest. We have a good knowledge both locally and elsewhere in London of all the best shops cafes, restaurants and bars.
