Why Move to Islington?
Sitting on the outer edge of the capital, the mainly residential district of Islington forms part of Greater London.
It is a buzzing location full of trendy shops, bars and al fresco cafes frequented by a contemporary creative community.
The area has become one of London’s many sought after locations, from the modern apartment buildings and busy shopping hub of Angel to the leafy Georgian squares that lie just a few blocks away.
Islington’s diverse qualities attract residents from all walks of life and cultures which is small wonder as the area is packed with great eateries, delicatessens, markets sit alongside clubs’ bars and lots more.
The main Islington High Street and Upper Street are lined with great independent shops, whilst more familiar stores can be found at the Angel and Nag’s Head shopping centres.
Even though you are in the middle of suburbia, there are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy green spaces. Popular areas include Highbury Fields, Gillespie park and New River Walk.
Scoring high on the convenience factor, Islington boasts decent connections via bus, tube, and train transport as well as several public cycle docking stations. An easy walkable commute into Central London is another option.
Surprisingly, Islington has managed to maintain its neighbourhood character and homes along its leafy suburbs are very much in demand.
If the area is good enough for the likes of Tony Blair, James McAvoy and Boris Johnson, who are we to argue.
Islington Schools & Education
There are absolutely no concerns when it comes to the quality of education accessible for those who live in the Islington Borough.
With at least 40 state schools located within a mile of central Islington, the problem will be which one to choose.
All bar three of the schools is deemed “good” or “outstanding” by Ofsted.
Several secondaries such as Highbury Fields School provide education for its pupils through to 18 years via its Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form provision.
If you prefer private education, six independents are also available for ages 2 through to 16 years.
Although London has a host of renowned universities, Islington is home to the main campus of University of London at Northampton Square and London Metropolitan University, North Campus. Both providing a huge number of courses across hundreds of subjects.
