There are many green spaces nearby: We like Waterlow Park especially. For indoor exercise, go to Archway Leisure Centre, where they have a gym and a pool. To hang out in St. John's Tavern on Junction Road on a Sunday is lovely, their dining room impressive. The Lord Palmerston and the Spoke are other great pubs nearby. There is new places opening all the time. If you prefer the outdoors, we highly recommend Hampstead Heath: Have a picnic on the grounds in front of Kenwood House and hang out with the crowd from Billionaires Row. Islington is a happening area just a short bus-ride away - you practically pass Arsenal stadium if you are into soccer. The quintessentially English village of Highgate is just 3 bus stops up the hill. You won't know you are in a global city! Don't miss world famous Highgate cemetery. On Saturdays, there is Archway market around the corner (with fresh fruits & vegetables, breads, cheeses, salamis, roast pork etc). Shops are plenty-full and close by on Holloway Road with a Sainsbury's supermarket 100 mtrs away open till mid-night.
