At the top of Upper Street tucked away is the Highbury & Islington tube station. This used to be a station very close to the Arsenal ground Highbury and as a result on matchdays would house scores of pubs full of Gooners.

Highbury & Islington is also well known for music venues with the Buffalo Bar directly to the right of the station upon exit. Also within view is The Garage which is the only venue that ever caused me to miss my last train home. A little way down Upper Street is also the Hope & Anchor which is a pub with a punk music legacy but not much of note going on currently. Also very close by is the Union Chapel which is an almost unique venue housed in an old church.

A little way down the road are various KFC rip offs but I have to say the chicken at Dixie Fried Chicken is some of the best chow I have ever sampled from a greasy fast food gaff.
