Area Guide to Islington

Despite being just ten minutes from the centre of the capital and boasting more restaurants than there are days in the year, Islington manages to retain a friendly neighbourhood vibe. Originally a Saxon village known as Gidelone, it’s now home to politicians, A-list actors, literary greats and, of course, Arsenal football club. Architectural gems like the Grade II listed town hall and leafy Georgian squares add to Islington’s fancy feel, and a mix of new builds, mid-century estates and charming period properties make N1 a permanently in-demand postcode.

From chain restaurants to gastronomic destinations like Ottolenghi, Frederick’s and nearby Exmouth Market, Islington’s foodie scene is as diverse as its inhabitants. When they’re not chowing down or enjoying a tipple at a traditional boozer or cool cocktail bar, residents get their culture fix at Saddler’s Wells, the Almeida Theatre or the Estorick Collection, and hunt for antique treasures in Camden Passage.

Islington may slap bang in well-connected Zone 2, but it’s not short on green space; get outside at Highbury Fields and Gillespie Park Nature Reserve or take a ramble down the New River Walk connecting Islington with Hertfordshire.
