Islington is one of London's most desirable neighbourhoods thanks to its prime location, unrivalled restaurant scene and gorgeous Victorian townhouses. Bordered by Highbury to the north and Hoxton to the east, Islington is the most restaurant-dense district of London as well as being jam-packed with buzzing bars and entertainment venues. It’s a well-connected town with commuters having access to the overground, underground and Great Northern train lines.
With a range of retail opportunities in abundance, you can expect to find a plethora of independent boutiques, designer brands and high-street favourites. An area popular with successful literary and creative figures, Islington is a hub of cultural activities too with a range of world-class theatres and cinemas all within easy reach within the borough.
The Islington borough has had its fair share of ups and downs, however over the last 30 years, Islington has been transformed into the buzzing quarter of North London people know and love today. Many areas within the borough were badly affected by enemy bombing during the Second World War. Years after the war and later gentrification has improved housing standards along with the appearance of local streets, turning it into one of the most desirable residential areas in London.
