Archway is a district centred on its tube station, on the edge of inner north London, being approximately (since 1965) the Junction ward of the London Borough of Islington. Almost all of Archway traditionally fell within Upper Holloway or Highgate centred in either direction along the fledgling A1 and its bypassed predecessor, Highgate Hill (road), respectively. Archway's bypassed road remained residential within Highgate proper, but Archway, centred on Archway Tower (a multi-story office building) and tube station, gained its own central commercial precinct.

Topographically Archway is of medium elevation between Highgate above and Islington below and has seven small parks and two large parks, border parks considered: a large proportion of the west of Archway is Whittington Hospital beyond which is a larger area divided between Highgate Cemetery and Waterlow Park.
