Property Search - Islington

Islington is the central district of the London Borough of Islington. It is an inner-city district in London spanning from Islington High Street to Highbury Fields encompassing the area around the busy Upper Street. The name is now also often applied to the areas of the borough close to Upper Street such as Barnsbury and Canonbury developed in the Georgian era.

Islington grew as a sprawling village along the line of the Great North Road and has provided the name of the modern borough. This gave rise to some confusion as neighbouring districts may also be said to be in Islington. This district is bounded by Liverpool Road to the west and New North Road to the south-east. Its northernmost point is in the area of Highbury. The main north-south high street Upper Street splits at Highbury Corner to Holloway Road to the west and St. Paul's Road to the east.

The area round Angel tube station is sometimes considered a district in its own right The Angel Islington. The northern part of this area (from the Liverpool Road junction northwards) is within the district of Islington while the southern half is in neighbouring Finsbury. The area below Penton Steet and east of Pentonville Road is the adjoining district of Pentonville.
