The Knowhere Guide

The Worst Things in Holloway, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Holloway.

The Worst Things
  • Asked the CD seller in the market why he didn't play music as it had always given atmosphere to the place. He said he now has to buy a music liscence from the council. Who thought that one up? Chairs and tables outside cafes have now been removed, same reason. They now need an expensive liscence
  • Some of the cracker residents
  • There are 3 prisons in Holloway. Pentonville, Holloway & the rest of Holloway. Burglary has to be higher than anywhere else in the world. Only a fool would choose to live in Holloway. I can't think of anywhere I would rather not live at. Smackland twinned with Crackzone = loserville there world of crime. Avoid it unless you want to be a victim too.
  • Too crowded from Nags Head to Waitrose on a Saturday and no easy way to cross Holloway Road there. The horrible blue that Drivers and Norris have painted their building.
