Why live in Islington?

Any city-based estate agent will tell you that Islington is one of the most popular districts in the north of London. Even though it is a mere 30-minute walk from the City, there is a unique “village” feel to the area. Islington is a popular borough for many reasons. It has an array of tube stations (three serve the area, as does the Overground and numerous bus services). You can even walk into the centre of London from here. There is so much to do here, including stunning restaurants, bars, shops and theatres.

Upper Street is world-famous for its range of shops, cafes and restaurants. Indeed, it’s one of the city’s most popular locations for a good night out, for people of all ages. Lying parallel to Upper Street is Camden Passage, where you can find a huge variety of small shops selling antiques, vintage clothes, luxury perfumes and more. Opposite the tube station is the Angel Centre, home to more conventional high street stores and food outlets.

If you’re looking for a location that’s lively, trendy and perfectly situated for an easy commute to Central London, Islington should definitely be high on your list.
