Highbury is a residential suburb in the London Borough of Islington. The area has traditionally had a very friendly, mixed demographic, from music producers to bankers, comedians and journalists to lawyers and politicians.
Within a short walk of Highbury & Islington Station is the open space of Highbury Fields surrounded by impressive Georgian and Victorian architecture, popular in the summer months with outdoor public tennis and netball courts and a small indoor fitness centre and pool. Highbury Barn is a small parade of independent award winning local shops and amenities, including Godfrey's butchers and Highbury Vintners.
Highbury Stadium, the former home of Arsenal Football Club, is now a development of luxury flats on the exact site of the old stands, with a large formal garden where the football pitch once sat.
Arsenal have moved to a 60,000 capacity purpose built stadium in the east of the area, and the football club continues to be at the heart of the Highbury community.
Housing stock in the area is largely Victorian and Georgian, ranging from the grand villas of Highbury Hill and the huge flat fronted town houses of Highbury Place to the pretty, tree lines streets east of Petherton Road and north of Highbury Fields.Description
