Emma Watson, Lily Allen, George Orwell and a whole host of other celebrities have lived in Islington.
Other famous faces from your borough include Oscar Wilde, Boris Johnson and Tony Blair.
We’ve compiled a list of the best and brightest to grace your streets since the dawn of time:
Harry Potter star and UN Ambassador Emma Watson lives in a posh flat in Canonbury, when she’s not jetting off to the USA.
Pop star Lily Allen, daughter of actor Keith Allen was born and raised in the borough – although her ‘Mockney’ accent would have you believe otherwise.
The author, essayist and journalist who wrote 1984 and Animal Farm lived in a basement flat at Canonbury Square. It’s rumoured that a night out in the Angel Wetherspoon’s inspired him to write about a horrific dystopian future.
After being convicted for homosexuality in 1895, Oscar Wilde was taken from the Old Bailey to the notoriously tough Pentonville Prison, where he stayed for two months before being transferred to Wandsworth.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, London Mayor Boris Johnson lived in the Highbury Fields area of Islington – a time which he credits with softening his right-wing views and making him more liberal. His recent USA tax bill controversy was over the sale of his old house on Furlong Road, right next to Highbury & Islington station.
Former prime minister Tony Blair exchanged his luxury Barnsbury pad for a rather more exclusive address, when he moved into 10 Downing Street after the 1997 General Election. When estate agents put it up for sale now though, they try and keep mum about the fact that he used to live there – apparently it’s a turn-off.
Professor Slughorn (also known as Jim Broadbent)
Actor Jim Broadbent (aka Professor Slughorn from the Harry Potter movies) lives in Belsize Park. According to the lock keepers, he’s a regular feature along Regent’s Canal.
