The Local Area
Islington offers something for everyone. Nightlife, galleries, theatres, cinema, antique markets and high street shopping. It is famous for its restaurants, cafes, artisan bakeries, gastropubs and bars. Some of the best pubs are to be found on quieter streets in Barnsbury and Canonbury. Sitting in some of the glorious pub gardens can leave you feeling like you are in a country village, with no inkling of being barely a mile from Central London.
Our Islington office is one of three within the Hotblack Desiato group and covers a wide area, from Smithfields round to Kings Cross and up to Highbury corner, across to Kingsland Road and down to Old Street.
Many properties in Islington are on streets featuring iconic Victorian and Georgian terraced houses. Many of these properties suit families who need a home near great schools and transport links. Many young professionals like to buy flats in converted terraced housing for the character, high ceilings and large proportions that they can bring. However, Islington caters for many styles and tastes; you can also find numerous warehouse/industrial building conversions and new build apartments all of which offer a fast commute into The City.
Other areas near Islington include Angel, Barnsbury, Canonbury, Hoxton, Shoreditch, Holloway, and Highbury. Islington is also well served by public transport. Getting to central London is very easy via the Tube, bus, or over ground train services and you can be in the City centre in around 20 minutes. You are also very close to King’s Cross and St Pancras for national rail services to the north and direct international rail services to France and Belgium. The highly anticipated Crossrail service, expected to open in December 2018 will have stations at Whitechapel, Liverpool Street and Farringdon, all of which are easily reached from Islington
In Islington you are never far from beautiful green spaces. You can take a stroll through Highbury Fields, Barnard Park or Rosemary Gardens for example, or have a lounge on Islington Green or the many beautiful garden squares Islington is renowned for. Regent’s Park to the West and Victoria Park to the East are also within easy reach via a leisurely bike ride along the superb, Regent’s Canal towpath.

For example, Camden Passage has an amazing antique market and vintage shops where you can buy everything from clothing to furniture.
