Highbury is a district in North London that is 3.8 miles away from Central London and is very well connected by both underground and over ground services. The area is particularly famous for being home to Arsenal F.C. with their former ground, Highbury Stadium, now converted into property and the new stadium, The Emirates, located only a few hundred metres away. On match days Arsenal (Piccadilly Line) and Finsbury Park tube stations (Piccadilly & Victoria Line) are extremely busy with thousands of fans pouring into the surrounding array of pubs and bars before kick-off. By and large the area is residential but there are also restaurants of all different types of cuisine although there is a strong Turkish influence. If you are looking for green space then head over to Finsbury Park or Highbury Fields to soak up the summer sunshine. Book your environmentally friendly car online or via our app.
Things in interest in Highbury
The manor house was situated by what is now the east side of Hornsey Road near the junction with Seven Sisters Road. After the manor decayed, a new manor house was built in 1271 to the south-east, to differentiate it from the original manor and because it was on a hill, it was called Highbury, from which the area takes its name. The site for Highbury Manor was possibly used by a Roman garrison as a summer camp. During the construction of a new Highbury House in 1781, tiles were found that could have been Roman or Norman; unfortunately these have been lost. Highbury New Park was home to Wessex Studios. Created by Beatles producer Sir George Martin, the studios saw the recording of some of the best known albums created by bands including Queen, Genesis, the Rolling Stones, the Sex Pistols and the Clash. The building is now a block of residential apartments called “The Recording Studio” and located at 106, Highbury New Park. Highbury was also home to Highbury Studios a film/TV/recording studio further along the same street, at 65A Highbury New Park; these studios had a training school next door in a disused church hall. Built initially as a music conservatoire in 1890, the site became a recording studio in 1926 for the Piccadilly label. In 1933, they became the Highbury (film) Studios and in 1945 they were acquired by the Rank Organisation. Book your environmentally friendly car online or via our app
