Area Guides


Islington

Once farmland providing the city with veg, Islington’s now something of a restaurant nucleus that still attracts hungry Londoners. Rows of Victorian terraced houses spin off from Upper Street, the neighbourhood’s lengthy artery dotted with wine bars, cocktail dens, cosy restaurants and independent shops.

Unexpected gems of the area include a city farm that’s home to goats and holidaying guinea pigs; not one but three esteemed theatres tucked above pubs; a retro cinema; galleries; a gig space in a listed church and a cobbled alleyway lined with vintage shops and cafés. And if it’s a sunny day? Get that ice cream to go, and take it for a walk along Regent’s Canal across to East London.
