Islington grew from humble beginnings. What started as an overcrowded London suburb transformed into a neighbourhood of high-class status—Islington is now a destination for celebrities, socialites, and fast-paced professionals. Buildings that began as inns and defunct social houses have since been reimagined as fashionable gastropubs, wine bars, and boutiques. Islington offers another perk—getting to and from this stylish neighbourhood is simple via its bus lines and nearby tube stations.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
