You can tell us more about Islington.

The Best Things
  • Highbury Fields and the Victoria line.
  • The bars and restaurants. No 73 bus.
  • Arsenal FC. The best football team the country has ever seen.
  • Upper Street and Angel have a great atmosphere in the evenings and you can meet some loevly people. There is a great mix of pubs, restaurants and clubs to meet everyones needs.
  • None. I move out to Hertfordshire.
  • The diversity of the place!! you really cant see it anywhere else, goths get on the same bus as raggas, trendies leave the hippies (for the most part) alone. You can blend in or stand out as much as you like and not many people will bat an eyelid
  • the parks
  • reasonable friendly atmosphere. the gallipoli restaurants in upper street. flashback & reckless records.
  • My neighbours not complaining bout loud music......(not yet anyway)
  • The Taxi drivers in Islington are pretty chatty.
  • Garden squares are all open to the public, unlike Notting Hill, for example. Thai food and bluegrass Monday night at the Hemingford. I've never been, so I don't know if it's good, but there's a flotation tank place on Liverpool Road.
  • Vibrant and mixed culture. Any face will fit.
  • Food, Drink, mix of people, atmosphere - zone 1 but very few 'tourists' to get in your way
