Open green space with a very popular children's playground.
Keep it classy in north London with the best restaurants, cafes, bars and things to do in Highbury
While it may be quieter than nearby Islington and not quite as trendy as its neighbour Stoke Newington, Highbury shouldn’t be overlooked. Whether it's a visit to quality butcher Godfrey’s or trip to La Fromagerie, this corner of London has a lot more to offer than football, though a trip to the Emirates Stadium is a must too.
Along with delightful delis and some suburb shopping, Highbury also has some stellar bars, pubs and restaurants that more than live up to establishments housed in its busier neighbours. It even has a recently refurbished live music venue, which also doubles up as a club. Highbury: not as quiet as it seems.
