Islington area information

Islington is a popular area for commuters, based close to the City of London and with excellent transport links. It is so popular that houses are in short supply, especially larger family properties. When these rare gems hit the market, they are snapped up quickly by those who want to buy into the community feel of the area. There are new developments cropping up all the time, which contrast with the more typical Georgian and early Victorian homes the area is known for. Residents include media executives, lawyers and finance workers, as well as some well-known celebrities, both past and present. There are many independent shops and restaurants, with new establishments opening all the time.

Things to do in Islington

If you like eating out, then head to Upper Street, which is packed with restaurants. There is a good mix of established chains and independent eateries. Parts of Islington were once called Little Italy due to a high Italian population. While that has ebbed out over the years, there are still some great restaurants from that period.

For shopping, consider a visit to Camden Passage. This small street is full of stalls and shops selling antiques, vintage clothing and more modern items. For your weekly groceries, visit Sunday’s Islington Farmers’ Market, with fruit and vegetables, bread, dairy products and seasonal cut flowers from the local area.

Islington is quite residential, but there are green spaces worth visiting. Highbury Fields is popular with families, with its playground for children, sand pit and water play features. There is also a cafe, gym and barbecue area. For those who like sports, it has 11 tennis courts, four netball courts and a floodlit football pitch.

Islington has a few fringe theatres, which offer a range of eclectic performances. The Almeida Theatre, for example, is known for its world-class productions featuring both British and international dramas.
