Islington Hotels

From the peaceful, green idyll of Finsbury Park to the roar of the crowds at the Emirates Stadium, Islington is a full-blooded district of northeast London, where Victorian working-class tradition mingles with modern, hipster-led development. For Arsenal fans, it’s a pilgrimage site to see their beloved gunners in action, while foodies flock to Islington High Street for a world tour of international cuisine. In short, there’s a lot to discover in Islington, and it definitely has its own, well-defined personality.

Things to see

On Islington High Street, The Angel is an immediately arresting sight. This honey-coloured, neoclassical building is immortalised on the Monopoly board, and it’s a bastion of Islington’s history. Nearby, Angel Central offers a dramatic, contemporary contrast to this traditional landmark. Here, a pair of flowing, steel wings mark the entrance to a sleek shopping mall, filled with airy high street stores and restaurants. It’s an assertive display of Islington’s development, where the local landscape and shopping opportunities are changing at a pace. Head north, and you’ll reach the mighty Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal football club. On match days, this vast stadium is packed to capacity and crackles with anticipation. When it’s not in use, fans can tour the stadium, and there’s even the option to be guided round by an Arsenal legend from different decades of the club’s footballing glory, and you’ll have access to the Arsenal museum.
