Relax in Highbury Fields

Posted in Highbury - London, Outdoors, Living at Pure

At 29 acres, Highbury Fields is the largest open space in the borough of Islington and is the best place for keen runners to stretch their legs.

There is a weekly 5km run organised by volunteers in the area every Saturday at 9:00am. It’s free but you must register your interest on the website, then you’ll be given a barcode and a time. They’re a friendly bunch who arrange for a post-run coffee at The White Swan at Highbury Corner so it’s healthy for your social life too.

Prefer a spot of tennis? There are 11 courts, some floodlit for evening matches. Or on a warm day just take a stroll among the trees, play Frisbee, sunbathe, and spot free-range hipsters.
