A built-up borough with a neighbourhood-like feel

From the modern apartment complexes and the busy shopping centre to the green and astounding Georgian squares that lie just a small distance away, Islington is well known among the public for its diversity. In recent years, the area has benefited from a surge in popularity, with buyers and investors queuing up to gain their foothold here. Despite the fact that it lies only 10 minutes from Central London, the area has done a surprising job at keeping its neighbourhood characteristics.

Islington may be a built-up area, but you’ll be amazed at how many beautiful outdoor spaces there are on offer. The largest of the bunch is Highbury Fields, which consists of 30 acres of play areas, sports grounds and open space, all of which is neatly tucked behind the hectic intersection of Highbury Corner.

The nature reserve and Ecology Centre at Gillespie Park are the ideal hotspots for days out with the children. If they enjoy exploring for butterfly and bird species as well as plants, then you will definitely want to consider coming here. Adults can also benefit from a visit, as they can seek help and tips on wildlife gardening and feasible living.

In terms of transportation, Angel Tube Station lies on the Bank branch of the Northern Line. Due to its location in Zone 1 it’s only seven minutes to London Bridge and five to Bank. For cycling enthusiasts, cyclists love living in the Borough as it is rather flat, presenting straightforward routes to the West End and the main city.
