Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have a beautiful, family home in Highbury, just north of the fashionable area of Islington in North London. Our home is bright, modern and spacious and set in a peaceful, leafy, secluded, private road just minutes away from the restaurants, cinemas, bars and theatres of Islington's Upper Street.

We are conveniently located for tubes (10 minutes walk from two tube stations), buses (5 minutes walk from a bus stop which will take you into the centre of London in about half an hour), and King's Cross / St Pancras station which is one tube stop away with trains to locations such as Cambridge and York. Our local tube station also has a direct link to the green suburbs of Richmond and Kew Gardens. You are within easy distance of all the major attractions of Central London accessible by tube or bus.

We are also within easy reach of the City of London where attractions such as the Tate Modern and St Paul's Cathedral are located.
