Although Islington has been a part of the Greater London area for over 200 years, it has only recently become one of the emerging, popular places for new arrivals in the capital to live. Islington is the perfect place to reside for hundreds of different reasons - not least the fact it's within easy reach of the City of London itself, and the rest of London's major districts and suburbs. Transport links in and around Islington and the North London area are strong - Islington plays host to several bus routes as well as several tube stations.
Situated north of central London, Islington is home to Arsenal FC - one of the most famous football clubs in the world. Arsenal's stadium, the Emirates, is where Arsenal play their home games in the Premier League and the other competitions in which they participate.
Islington is home to its own high street - a combination of Victorian and Georgian era buildings that stand tall and proud above the road below. Islington's high street features lots of well-known shops from national chains, as well as many smaller, independent outlets. There's something for everyone on Islington's high street - it's no wonder it's such a hive of activity from the second the shops open each morning.
Islington proudly claims to have the fastest rising house prices in the whole of the Greater London area. That just goes to show how desirable property in this amazing place is becoming.
