About Islington Council

Islington has so much for visitors to enjoy. There are restaurants; shops and markets; beautiful Georgian squares; parks; theatres and music venues; colleges; libraries, leisure centres, gyms and of course the Emirates home of the Arsenal football team. The eclectic neighbourhood has a rich history, and a strong sense of community. Foodies will love Exmouth Market’s street food stalls which offer outstanding value. Shoppers can hunt for treasures at independent boutiques, vintage shops and antique markets. At the London Canal Museum you can see inside a narrowboat cabin, learn about the history of London's canals, and the people who lived and worked on the waterways. A relaxing stroll down the Regents Canal is a must on a sunny day, or a picnic in one of Islington’s garden squares.
