Islington Guide

Your All In London guide to Islington

When people mention Islington, they are often actually referring to the London Borough of Islington which is one of the most popular inner city regions for both visitors and residents. Many individuals will visit Islington purely to enjoy the range of antique shops that are considered amongst the best in the capital.

Up until the 1980s, Islington experienced a period of decline and poverty; however, this changed as people realised that the region offered both space and proximity to the City. The well built townhouses became gentrified and Islington is now considered one of the most coveted regions of London by both residents and visitors alike.
