The London Borough of Islington may be the second-smallest borough in London but it sure packs a punch! It combines the ultra-modern, eye-catching Emirates Stadium off Holloway Road with Victorian and Georgian houses dating back to the 19th Century.
It is hard to believe now, but back in the 17th and 18th centuries Islington was best known for growing vegetables to feed London and as a rural retreat from the city. What started as a sprawling Middlesex village is now one of the most attractive places to live in London.
From the middle of the 19th century, large well-built houses and fashionable squares drew families and professionals to the district. From the 1960s, the wonderful Victorian terraces and Georgian townhouses were rediscovered by middle-class families and the area became newly fashionable and has remained so ever since.
Islington has a lot to offer in terms of restaurants and coffee houses. It also has some notable cultural landmarks such as the Islington Museum and the Islington History Centre both located at Finsbury Library.
There is a good mix of housing stock from modern apartment blocks to family houses. The borough attracts a wide variety of people ranging from students to single professionals and large families.
