This is one of the lesser-explored of the village enclaves that exist within the City of London (the name given to the city’s financial district). It’s part of the Borough of Islington and a considerable chunk of its property is residential, so you get the sense you’re in real London as opposed to places like Leicester Square and Covent Garden which today, alas, are more like Disney London. Here, the residents are understandably proud of their area’s literary and artistic heritage. George Orwell lived here in the 1940s, after the home in which he lived with his wife was bombed. Evelyn Waugh is another former resident. And just as the place has been home to some of the finest literary voices, so today it is home to some of the very best men offering gay massage in Canonbury. Their sheer beauty and rugged charm is once seen, never forgotten. Better still, their talent is not confined to their looks; they are gifted therapists who love making men feel better.
As you get to know the district, you could take a break in Canonbury Square, once home to the diarist to end all diarists, Samuel Pepys. You’ll have no difficulty getting about – Tube stations nearby include Angel, Highbury & Islington and the area’s eponymous station. There are plenty of overland railway services, too, should you be planning an excursion out of the capital. But for an excursion of the body and the Tantric soul, it’s got to be gay massage in Canonbury. Your body and mind will thank you for weeks to come.
