Explore Angel and Islington

Rolling terraced houses interspersed with intense banks of greenery aren’t the only thing Islington is known for. The overwhelming sensation is that you can breathe: the best culture, restaurants, quirky venues and independent shops without the overwhelming crowds. A thriving theatre scene sits alongside an ever-growing stock of galleries and concert venues, away from the sometimes-overcrowded alleys of central London.

The area is home to an immense variety of activities – if you fancy an exhibition by an up-and-coming artist one evening and a weekend football match at the Emirates Stadium the next, you can. If you’re after a welcome respite, then it is the escapist parks of Islington Green, Finsbury Park or Highbury Fields that you’re after.

South of Islington lies Angel. Closer to central London, the area is more commercial, and so home to a greater number of shops and services. There is easy access to the city centre, with Soho just 10 minutes by tube, and the thriving pop-up markets and independent outfits of Old Street and Shoreditch to the east. Barnsbury to the west has a long history of development and change, today making it one of London’s most sought-after areas. But with the range of events taking place in Islington, it would be easy not to notice.
