Nag's Head, London
The name refers to the junction of Holloway Road (the A1) with Seven Sisters Road and Parkhurst Road, where the Nag's Head public house used to stand, and also to the surrounding area - particularly the stretch of Holloway Road between the old Nag's Head and the junction of Holloway Road with Camden Road and Tollington Road, which has become an important shopping and entertainment area.
The pub, also previously called the "Mustang Diner" and "O'Neills", closed in 2004; the original early Victorian building is in use today as a gaming establishment.
The shopping and entertainment area includes the Nag's Head Market (behind Holloway Road on the northwest corner of Hertslet Road) and the Nag's Head Shopping Centre. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London. It is home to a very multicultural population and is one of the most densely populated areas of London.
