If there’s one thing that is inevitable in life it is change. We can’t fight it, we can’t avoid it, we just have to accept and embrace it. Taking risks and trying new things is what keeps things interesting and a new home can be a great way to do this. The London region has a lot to offer so you’re in for a treat if you move here, especially if you’re considering the N19 postcode district.
N19 is one of the twenty-two postcode areas in the Northern region of London. The area itself was created in 1857, alongside the other original London postcode areas. It starts at the centre of London and moves north and expands towards the boarder, encompassing the Boroughs of Hackney, Islington, Camden, Barnet, Haringey and Enfield. It covers the Boroughs of The smaller areas range between N1 to N22 and each consist of several places. These subsections were introduced as means to improve post delivery, by making transportation and travel easier and more accurate, by introducing more specific areas and allowing for more information to be conveyed on street signs. Two other postcodes exist; N81 and N1P that are not used for addresses but instead are utilised for electoral reform services and PO boxes and marketing by different firms.
N19 itself represents Upper Holloway, Archway and parts of Tufnell Park and Hornsey. These fall within the Boroughs of Islington and Camden and use the post town address of London. The area shares it’s borders with the N4, N6, N7, N8 and NW5 postcode districts, which contain Finsbury Park, Highgate, Holloway, Crouch End, Kentish Town and more. House prices here have been more or less steady. Homes range between about £350,000 for a single bedroom to approximately £1,167,000 for five bedrooms. Flats range between around £269,000 to £815,000 for one to four bedrooms. The most expensive homes can be found in Gatcombe Road and Whitehall Park.
Upper Holloway is sometimes unnoticed as it’s own area and instead regarded as part of Archway or Holloway, though the name is used for the Upper Holloway Train Station. Places of interest in Archway include the Whittington Hospital, the popular music venue Archway Tavern, which also features a statue of Whittington’s Cat and the Archway Tower building. There are many open spaces here and nearby such as Archway Park, Hillrise Park, Dartmouth Park and Elthorne Park. Notable residents include actor Bill Bailey, band The Boo Radleys, authors James Harrington and Weedon Grossmith, historian E. Carr, sculptor Rachel Whiteread, and actor and DJ Reggie Yates.
