The Local Area
Bustling Upper Street leads north from neighbouring Angel and its eponymous Underground station, while City Road heads east towards Shoreditch and the City. Venture south via St. John Street and you’ll find the bars and restaurants of Farringdon, or take Pentonville Road westwards for the international terminus of King’s Cross St Pancras.
Nearby Angel station provides commuters with easy access around the capital and beyond. One stop west (a three-minute hop) takes you to King’s Cross St Pancras for connections north of London, or via Eurostar to Europe; two stops and five minutes the other way and you’re in the heart of the city’s financial district at Moorgate. It takes fewer than 15 minutes to reach Oxford Circus and the West End tube stops, and the commuter hubs of London Bridge, Liverpool Street and Waterloo are all within easy reach.
