About Islington


Islington has been many things to many people, particularly over the past 50 years or so since recovering from its terrible WW2 bombings. Today it’s rather upmarket, but also eclectic, its residents numbering politicians, students, young professionals, middle-class families and scatterings of unemployed individuals.

About Islington

Why Choose Serviced Apartments in Islington?

Looking for a quiet place to situate yourself in after a frenetic day of business in the capital? Then our serviced apartments in Islington will be right up-your-street. All of our many upmarket, corporate apartments in Islington are fully modernised and come with fully-fitted kitchens, on-site washing facilities, allocated parking, free Wi-Fi and, often, concierge services too. That could mean someone else making meals and doing the laundry while you chill out in the evening and maybe take in a show or meet a friend for a quiet riverside drink.

Ultimately, Situ's serviced apartments in Islington allow guests to decide how they wish to enjoy their business travel. The facilities and level of comfort on offer cannot be matched by ordinary hotels or B&Bs, thus greatly increasing the demand for serviced accommodation in the area.

Where is Islington?

Regarded as part of inner central London, Islington, after which the borough is named, sits just one and a half miles in a northerly direction from St Paul’s Cathedral. Geographically, Islington stretches from the City at Farringdon and Old Street to the edges of Haringey, whilst Clerkenwell is to the south and Holloway, furthers towards north London.

Covering an area of just over six square miles and with a population of nearly 250,000 people, it’s the third smallest council area in the capital city of London. The last population census revealed that the borough was the most densely populated in the whole of the UK. Islington is actually quite easy to reach if you’re in the car. Simply follow the A1 straight into the borough, and to exit, you can take the North Circular, M25 and M1.

Invest in Islington

Islington has developed a reputation for tech businesses and start-up hubs. According to NOMIS figures, 32.1% of residents are in professional occupations with 23.7% listed as employed in tech or associates. In 2019, over 18,000 new start-ups were created in Islington too, according to figures from UHY Hacker Young. That makes it the leading location for start-ups in the whole of the UK.

Many of these businesses, especially those that are tech-related, are based at Rocket Space, the tech incubator beside Angel Underground station. Data from the Office for National Statistics data show nearly 15,000 start-ups launched in the borough in 2017 – a 30% rise from the previous year. A huge number of start-ups are shunning nearby tech hub Silicon Roundabout in favour of Islington because it’s less expensive. Google and Microsoft are based here, so too is global mobile marketing business Oqury and robotics firm Automata.

Parisian start-up incubator Dauphine University recently opened a new campus in Islington, thanks to the nearness of the Eurostar terminal at London St Pancras International. A £1 million grant via the Good Growth Fund is being match-funded by the Council to create four new workspaces – in Finsbury Park around Fonthill Road. The focus will be on tech and fashion, and that brings us to the number of creative spaces which are also based here. Giant online travel company Expedia has its HQ here, for instance. Overall, whether you are visiting the city for a small networking event or to relocate your company, just remember there are many high-standard, serviced apartments in Islington which are available that can cater for your business travel needs.

Moving to Islington

Islington has so much history and connections to British culture, particularly stretched across its renowned Upper Street. Writer Joe Orton was famously murdered in his home here, Shakespeare called it a ‘disreputable cluster of streets’ and composer Benjamin Britten spent the last decade of his life wandering its streets. Theatre-goes are pretty much in heaven when they come to Islington, thanks to the fact there’s both the Almeida (an Islington institution) and Sadler’s Wells dance venue, as well as popular community theatres the Hen and Chickens and the King’s Head (one of London’s oldest).

The O2 Academy for concerts with colleagues and friends is within walking distance too. If classical music is your thing, then you’ll also find the Islington Assembly Hall and Union Chapel very accommodating. Camden Passage is loved for its antiques, vintage and generally eclectic shops, so too is the bustling Chapel Market area. Surprisingly, considering its proximity to the City of London, green spaces aren’t too difficult to find in Islington either, because there’s around 154 of them. Highbury Fields is one of the best but for something a bit different as far as visitors are concerned, a stroll along Regent’s Canal from Islington to Hoxton is hard to beat. You can stop for a spot of lunch at the Towpath Café and take in the beautiful scenery near Whitmore Bridge.

You’ll find an Italian feel in Islington and indeed head southwards and Clerkenwell is often called ‘Little Italy.’ Reminders of the Italian immigrants who settled here in the last two centuries can still be found in St Peter’s Italian Church and the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art. For food, the celebrity chef Yotam Ottolenghi's restaurant, named after himself, is worth a visit, as well as the Nordic fayre at family-run Scandinavian restaurant SKÅL. All in all, there's plenty to see and do here, and it is for that reason that we recommend a long term stay in a Situ Islington apartment, to make sure you don't miss out on anything that the city has to offer.
