With its brightly coloured buildings, housing independent shops and Artist studios, the Old High Street is at the heart of the Creative Quarter. I love this part of town, it slows down a little out of season but between Easter and October it is a hive of activity. At the top of the street is the family friendly Lubens pizza restaurant which sits just next door to County Fayre.
When I was first asked to contribute to Sister’s Hoods I wasn’t quite sure what to call the area surrounding me. I live in the middle of quite a few neighbourhoods, on the cusp of Upper Holloway and Islington in North London. It’s an area that unless you’re a local or have friends living there you may not ever visit. I’m not sure I’d want it any other way though, it keeps things local and that’s the way we like it, no?
