ANGEL

Angel, with its own distinct and trendy vibe and a backdrop of narrow alleys and wide boulevards, is a savvy London location that keeps up with the times.

This thriving and vibrant area in the London Borough of Islington, close to Hackney and Finsbury, has a mix of architecture with many beautiful examples of Edwardian, early Victorian and Georgian houses, 1930s to 1960s apartment blocks, and luxury new developments. The diverse selection of properties, including 'affordable' and 'local authority' housing, provides an eclectic mix of cultures that enhances Angel's popularity and charm.  Due to the proximity to The City and Central London, buying or renting in Angel has become very appealing to families, creatives, media and young City professionals.

The fashionable buzzing Upper Street is a great place to browse well-known high street brands, independent boutique shops, vintage clothes shops, and antique shops. There's also a huge shopping centre, Angel Central, that has shops, restaurants, a cinema, and music venues.

There are specialist bakeries, cafes, wine bars, pubs, and gastropubs and many fantastic restaurants to choose from. For the foodies on the hunt for fresh local produce, there's Islington Farmer's market every Sunday morning and for the antique lovers, there's Camden Market.

For those who enjoy culture, Almeida Theatre is regarded as one of London's premier theatres, and there's The King's Head and The Old Red Lion pub theatres. Sadler’s Wells is great venue to watch dance.

Parents will appreciate the high standards of schools in and around the area. Central Foundation Boys’ School and City of London Academy are both highly rated. There are several great primary schools, like Ambler Primary, and Canonbury Primary School.

Commuting is a breeze.  Angel underground station, on the Northern Line, and its zone 1 location means it’s only 5 minutes to Bank and 7 minutes to London Bridge. Highbury & Islington station is in zone 2 and takes 7 minutes to get to Oxford Circus on the Victoria line. The overground train connects to Clapham Junction, New Cross, Canada Water, Shoreditch and Stratford. A Thameslink Great Northern commuter train links to Old Street and Moorgate on weekdays.

Living in Angel means that large green open spaces are on your doorstep, the most popular being Highbury Fields, with nearly 30 acres to enjoy. Children can play in the well-appointed play areas, and there is the Highbury Pool, gym, and tennis courts. Walking, running, or cycling along Regent's Canal is always a popular pastime.

Angel is a lively thriving place and it is one of the best places to live in the city. It's perfect for working professionals who want a short commute to work and a lively cultural milieu. If you're someone who loves eating out or having a few cocktails after work, then Angel is for you as there's something for everyone.
