Islington’s a quirky place with a unique sense of style and in a class all of its own.

Just when you think you know it like the back of your hand the town conjures up something you weren’t quite expecting. As time and progress take its toll, Islington has to work that much harder to maintain its individuality but it’s defiant in the mission to be authentic and that’s what we love most about it.

An eclectic mix of high street and independent shopping, world class theatre  and underground gigs, fine dining and cafe culture. Home to the world famous Arsenal football club you have to pick your times to visit unless of course you are going to a game. From the Angel Wings sculpture in the N1 center to the New River Walk if you are open to exploring it is full of worthwhile surprises. Great for shopping for interiors whatever your taste and it’s got family entertainment covered with places like the Little Angel puppet theatre and open green spaces with adventure playgrounds.

From Camden Passage full of vintage and antique dealers and shops like Home and Pantry to The Only Place for Pictures it’s bustling with the unusual and the one off.  Sit on the green and have a frozen yoghurt, walk along the canal and feed the ducks or sip a cold one in one its many pretty beer gardens.
