    • About London - Islington

      Stomping ground to many of London’s liberal-minded and young professionals, much of Islington has an arty, accomplished ambience, probably due to the wealth of writing and artistic talent calling it home.

      Trendy bars and an eccentric collection of restaurants and bistros line the streets, and the nightlife is buzzing well into the early hours. With its arty tendencies Islington has a thriving ‘fringe’ theatre scene, bringing edgy productions and their typical audiences to the area in droves. The various venues and theatres also provide a showcase for emerging comedians and acts, giving residents plenty of opportunity to sample the country’s latest talent.
