Holloway Road is a road in London. It is one of the main shopping streets in North London, and carries the A1 road as it passes through Holloway, in the London Borough of Islington. The road starts at the Archway, near Archway tube station, then heads south-east, past Upper Holloway railway station, Whittington Park, past the North London campus of London Metropolitan University near Nag’s Head, past Holloway Road tube station, and the main campus of the university, and then becomes Highbury Corner, near Highbury & Islington station.

The origins of the name are disputed; some believe that it derives from “hollow” due to the dip in the road from the cattle that made their way along the route to the cattle markets in London, whilst some believe it derives from “hallow” and refers to the road’s historic significance as part of the pilgrimage route to Walsingham. No documentary evidence can be found to support either derivation.

A row of Victorian houses, numbers 726–732, opposite Upper Holloway railway station, stands at the described location of the fictional Brickfield Terrace in Diary of a Nobody. The architecture is typical for buildings on this stretch of the road.
