The N5 district that stretches from Highbury Fields to the former home of Arsenal Football Club has become an attractive alternative to Islington among young professionals, eager to take advantage of the convenient transport facilities and the proximity to super-cool Upper street. The rental accommodation choices are excellent too with Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architectural influences in abundance and some modern developments too.

Talking of which, the old Arsenal stadium sported some attention-grabbing period details and these have been lovingly preserved by the property developers who undertook its transformation from cramped sports arena to luxury living space with affordable rentals. The famous pitch where Thierry Henry wove his magic is now an attractive garden feature that lies between two banks of luxury apartments.

When it comes to commuting into the city centre or making a quick getaway, residents here have an outstanding transport hub at hand. Highbury and Islington station contains both overground and underground lines which connect to the West End and City via the Victoria Line and First Capital Connect respectively. There is also Silverlink Metro, a crosstown link that enables passengers to get from East to West without struggling through the centre of town.

Shopping in the Highbury area is a thoroughly pleasant experience as nearby Upper Street in Islington has numerous fashion outlets, gift shops and high class delicatessens to choose from. Its' claim to fame however is the number of small independent theatres and music venues that are nearby together with a world famous antiques market. Non-cooks will love it here too. Upper Street's must have one of the London's highest restaurants per capita outside the West End.
