Barnsbury is a residential suburb in the London Borough of Islington. Set between the regenerated Kings Cross quarter and Angel.
Housing stock is a mixture of beautiful Georgian and Victorian townhouses, with some Edwardian stock and a scattering of new developments, including some of the most prestigious portered developments in North London.
Barnsbury Wood, a small nature reserve, which can be accessed from Crescent Street, is home to a selection of sycamore, ash and elder trees which provide a home to a variety of wildlife, and there is a selection of open spaces and garden squares in the area, almost all of which are open to the public.
The area features some of the most prestigious property in Islington, and some of the most beautiful streets, with Ripplevale Grove, Barnsbury Square and Lonsdale Square among the most sought-after addresses. Traditional English pubs serving upscale gastro fare to well-heeled clients mix with some more cutting edge offerings closer to Upper Street, and it is this mix of the traditional English charm on the doorstep of the bustle and international flavours of Upper Street and Kings Cross which lend the area much of its appeal.Description
