Holloway

Holloway is a residential suburb in the London Borough of Islington. Being one of the most densely populated parts of London the area is often seen as the poor relation to it’s grand neighbours; Islington and Highgate. This image is beginning to change but it will be a slow process. Holloway prison is perhaps the most notorious landmark in the area. Britain’s only all female prison is home to just under 500 inmates including, over the years, such infamous names as Myra Hindley and Maxine Carr. The building we say today was put up in the 1970s replacing the original Gothic building.

Holloway Road borders the area to the north-east and is constantly congested with traffic making its way between Highgate and Highbury. The shops along the road are a reflection of the local immigrant population with kebab shops and international grocers prominent. Holloway Road Underground Station falls into zone 2 of the Piccadilly line from where you can be in the West End within 15 Minutes.
