Home > Islington


Home to the world famous Arsenal football club, the borough of Islington has a very diverse community, which large expanses of council housing coupled with highly sought after multi million pound properties.

Some of the best known areas of Islington are Finsbury, Kings Cross and Highbury; although those who have had the delight of staying at Her Majestyís Pleasure will be more familiar with Holloway and Pentonville! Clerkenwell is probably best known for the Saddlers Wells theatre, and as home to the Guardian newspaper, although it was once famed for its spas and tea rooms.

Islington is well known for its shopping facilities and the ĎAngelí certainly boasts a thriving hub of activity after dark, with a wide range of pubs, clubs and restaurants to choose from; although the Angel Islington is perhaps best known on a world scale for its place on the standard British Monopoly board.

Travel links are well starred - Kings cross is one of Londonís most popular railway stations and provides direct links to East Anglia, the North and Scotland.
