What you’ll do

You'll follow your host to the discover heart of Islington - a dashing neighborhood that has undergone an urban transformation in recent years. Rub shoulders with the hip, the trendy and the socialites of London as you wander the streets flanked by fashionable boutiques, gastropubs and cafes. This being said, you can also rub shoulders with some very down to earth characters who have lived here for decades and side-stepped the explosion of restaurants and ‘it-girl’ vibe you’ll find in some corners of Islington. Imagine meandering through the vibey stalls of Chapel Market, perusing the treasure trove of items for sale and sampling delicious fresh food with your host. Now picture yourself floating along Camden Passage, a quaint street (and hipster mecca) where you can browse an array of vintage and antique shops, cafes and markets. You could pop in to a cosy bar, stop by a local restaurant (there might even be more restaurants than people here, such is the locals’ love of dining out) or do something a little edgier like visit a warehouse space that hosts live music. You will leave Islington with more than a few new friends (the locals here are a wildly social bunch) and enough good memories to fill an album.
