Highbury area guide
Keep it classy in north London with Highbury's best restaurants, cafes, bars and things to do
Far quieter than nearby Islington, Highbury is home to people who consider a good brunch part of their daily routine. It's also frequented by the London mayor himself - you can often spot Boris and his straw-coloured barnet padding along local jogging routes. If that's not enough to draw you in, then the area has plenty to offer in terms of elegant restaurants, decent bars and pubs, and ace gig venues.
