High demand

New research published by Knight Frank has revealed that unsurprisingly, Canonbury is a highly popular place among Brits, and is always in high demand.

Its findings showed that house prices in Islington rose by 1.7 per cent in October, second only to the 'City fringe' area at 3.5 per cent. 

The report also showed that property prices in prime Central London increased by 0.6 per cent in October and have increased by 6.2 per cent over the first ten months of this year.

Liam Bailey, global head of residential real estate at Knight Frank, had this to say: "Demand for prime Central London property remains high, with the number of new applicants registering their interest in buying a home 34.4 per cent higher so far in 2013 compared to the same period of 2012. The number of property viewings is also higher over the same period, by almost 15 per cent." 

Cultural attractions

Canonbury is very well known for its artistic creations, and is home to such landmarks as the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, Canonbury Square and Canonbury Tower, which was originally built by William Bolton of St Bartholomew's Priory between 1509 and 1532 before being handed over to to Thomas Cromwell during the dissolution.
