Area Guide:

Situated nearby the newly appointed St Pancras Eurostar link, Islington is a thriving model of successful urban regeneration and renewal. In the 19th century it was one of London's first suburbs and still contains some of the most unusual and intimate residential squares you will come across. Its City fringes location made it attractive to artists, writers and City bankers who poured in during the 1970's to refurbish and restore neglected buildings. Today it is one of the most lively and creative of London's villages and still marked by patrician elegance and taste. Markets such as Camden Passage, independent shops and bars ensure that the area maintains its street-style and the density of fringes theatres makes it a popular haunt for all theatre lovers. Highbury Fields is the biggest local park, nearby Islington Green is also frequented by many locals who also congregate in the area's garden squares. New River Walk or the canal towpath offer interesting walks.
