We were in the area to buy supplies at CassArt , and thus had a day to squander in Islington . Quite a busy little place, a lot of small ally's and great shops, nice food too. Its a mid-range price area for London when it comes to food and drinks, its quite happening at the moment.

Busy, bustling area with plenty of pubs and clubs. Expensive for drinks but probably typical of London.
