2 bedroom flat for rental
Rent a flat in Canonbury Square, Canonbury, Islington, London, N1
Canonbury is a small residential district within the London Borough of Islington. One of the most popular areas in Islington, it has a rich literary, artistic and theatrical history, having boasted George Orwell, Evelyn Waugh, Samuel Phelps and more recently Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson as residents.
Pretty tree lined streets feature a mix of Victorian, Georgian and Neo Georgian architecture. Most properties in the area benefit from communal or private gardens, and the open space of Highbury Fields is only a short walk away. The New River is at the centre of the area. Built as an aqueduct in the 18th Century to supply fresh water from Hertfordshire to Central London, it is now a beautiful stretch of leafy urban serenity, and the streets surrounding the river, including Willow Bridge Road, "The Alwynes" (Alwyne Road and Alwyne Place) and Canonbury Park South, are virtually devoid of through traffic and are among the most desirable addresses in North London.
Canonbury has some independent shops along Canonbury Lane and several popular gastro pubs pubs and restaurants, but with Upper Street close at hand, most shopping, drinking and dining experiences are to be had there. The world famous Almeida Theatre is close by, as are several other smaller but no less creative theatrical venues.
