Islington Hotels - London

Mini guide to Islington

     

Located North of the CBD, Islington is the traditional home of non-conformists, and houses actors, artists, politicians and journalists. It is the perfect place to experience modern theatre, art and the funky restaurants on Upper and Essex Streets. Despite being located in the midst of working class suburbs it has a reputation for expensive real estate and a trendy high street full of chic restaurants and lively bars, It was also the former home suburb of Tony and Cherie Blair.

For Italian art lovers, the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art is a must see. It houses a collection of paintings and sculptures by 20th century Italian artists, with a core of Futurist works by Balla, Boccioni, Carra, Russolo and Severini.

The Crafts Council houses Britain's largest crafts gallery, where a continuing cycle of work by major exhibitors can be seen throughout the year. The gallery is closed on Mondays, admission is free and access is via Angel tube station.

For antique buffs, visit Camden Passage, which is actually located in Islington. The numerous antique shops here are complemented on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays by outdoor market stalls.

For some eclectic local produce - cheese, veggies, sausages, cakes etc. - stroll around the Islington Farmer's Market on Sundays.

Although Islington is slightly outside Central London, it is a popular residential area for young professionals working the City, as it lies not far from Liverpool Street station - a major rail and underground hub - and the City itself. In fact, Islington and Highbury station is on the Victoria Line, so for visitors it provides convenient direct access to areas of interest such as Piccadilly Circus, Knightsbridge and South Kensington.
