Restaurants in Islington
A guide to Islington and restaurants around Islington
Islington - N1
A dormitory village on the fringe of the City from medieval times, the fields between Upper Street and Liverpool Road not only housed one of the largest farms in the neighbourhood but also provided forage and shelter for these passing herds. The numerous pubs along the High Street and Upper Street looked after humans. A map of the Islington area.
Nowadays, the much gentrified Islington, spiritual home to New Labour and more recently attractive to wealthy City types, has high points that include the Kings Head and Almedia theatres, the Screen on the Green cinema, the classy Union Chapel concert hall and the antiques market at Camden Passage. Open space is now not a strong point although there are attractive walks along the Union Canal and green acres to the North at Highbury Fields.
On the restaurant front, LondonEats.com favourites are Gallipoli, Conran's Almeida and Huong Viet.
Travel facilities are excellent with tubes at Highbury and Islington (Victoria line), Angel (Northern line) and Caledonian Road (Piccadilly line). There are also trains at Highbury and Islington, Drayton Park, Canonbury and Essex Road.
