The Highbury Local Area

Situated to the north of Islington, Highbury is a charming neighbourhood offering a surprisingly tranquil environment combined with excellent transport links to central London. It is increasingly popular with young professionals and families due to its friendly villagey atmosphere and wonderful outdoor spaces.

In the heart of Highbury, you’ll find an old village centre with its clock tower installed to mark Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee in 1897. Indeed, the area blossomed during Victoria’s era, as magnificent family homes were built from 1850 onwards to house London’s growing middle class.

There is everything from elegant Georgian homes to large Victorian mansions and smaller Victorian terraces. Edwardian red brick houses and apartment blocks can also be found around Highbury Fields and to the north. Many large period properties have been converted into spacious apartments.

Highbury suffered extensively during the Blitz. On 27 June 1944, an enemy V-1 flying bomb or ‘doodle bug’ was dropped on Highbury Corner, killing 28 people and injuring a further 150. The period after World War II saw large-scale rebuilding across Highbury replacing bombed buildings and provided new housing.

Highbury was once the home of football for many Arsenal fans as the big Arsenal Stadium was located in the area. The old stadium was later converted into a luxury housing complex known as Highbury Square. The new stadium, known as the Emirates Stadium is now located just a short distance away in Holloway.

Beatles producer Sir George Martin, who grew up in the Highbury area, founded Wessex Studios in Highbury New Park where many famous albums were recorded.
