    I've recently signed on a really nice flat on Caledonian Road, 5 minutes up from the tube station.

    I've heard stories about how safe the area is, and it's technically walking distance from my university but I don't want to walk if it's dangerous.

    Can anyone give any insight on this area?

    I don't think Barnsbury or Holloway generally are really bad areas, but you do hear about street crime around there at times - I think like many parts of inner London, you get some gang activity and some random violent stuff. It's probably not worse than most parts of London and you just have to be a little bit careful, for example, try to avoid being on your own out on the streets late in the evenings, stay in bright areas if you can, avoid obvious gangs of youths, that kind of thing. It's really about being sensible.
