Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The contemporary one bedroom flat in the heart of trendy Islington is perfect for a romantic break in London.
The flat is spread over two floors of an attractive Edwardian building which was originally part of a school and has recently been completely renovated while still maintaining some of the original features. There is a communal garden and a 24 hour concierge o?ering complete security. Guests should note it sits on the second floor (up 2 flights of stairs, no lift).
On the first of the two floors there is a good sized double bedroom with a separate bathroom. The bedroom is light and airy with three windows and white walls. A fitted wardrobe provides ample storage for guests. The bathroom is modern and beautifully finished with a bath, a waterfall shower, toilet and large white bowl sink.
Unusually the open plan living room, kitchen and dining area are upstairs. The living room has a large comfortable corner sofa and a glass co?ee table on dark wood floors. Two large windows allow morning sun to flood into the space. It is the perfect room to relax in after a long day exploring everything London has to o?er.
The kitchen is contemporary and provides everything guests might need; Italian fitted units, brand new appliances and a large fridge/freezer. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area with a circular glass table and 4 vintage chairs where guests can enjoy meals if they decide not to eat out in one of the very many restaurants nearby.
Islington is famous for its nightlife, theatres and offers an impressive choice to rival the West End on popular Upper Street - with cafes, restaurants, boutiques, a shopping mall and a couple of cinemas. It is popular with celebrities and politicians and the former Prime Minister Tony Blair lived here. The popular Sadlers Well Dance Theatre can be reached on foot. Almeida Theatre, Union Chapel and O2 academy, live music at local pubs and bars, are just a sample of the incredible range on offer. Well known attractions in the area include the Dickens Museum, the London Canal Museum, Camden Passage antiques market and the Chapel Market fruit & veg.
The Emirates football stadium is within walking distance, or a quick bus ride away. The area is family friendly too - the Geffrye Museum has a splendid kids zone - and the V&A Museum of Childhood and Highbury Fields are close by. Newington Green has a children's cafe called 'that place on the corner' and there are plenty of child-friendly cafes in Newington Green and Upper Street.
While all the delights of Angel are within walking distance, transport links to other parts of the Capital are very good. Highbury & Islington station (on both the Victoria line, zone 1, and London Overground) is a 5 minute walk and will take you down, for example, to Oxford Circus and the West End in less than 10 minutes. The new Stratford Westfield Shopping mall and site of the 2012 Olympics can also be reached in 15 minutes on the Overground line from Highbury & Islington. Frequent bus services are a few minute's walk from the house, on Upper Street and will also take you to Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus, Soho in about 15 minutes.

About this location
The London region
Elegant Islington is a desirable residential area north of central London that stretches from Islington High Street to Highbury Fields and includes the busy Upper Street district. There are a plethora of charming homes which cater perfectly for both small and large families. Dating back to the Domesday Book and predominantly built during the 19th century, it boasts some of the most elegant Georgian terraced streets and Victorian squares in the city including Lonsdale Square which has a beautiful garden at its centre.
With a mixture of cultural shops, pubs and cafés, Islington is a favourite drinking and dining spot for many. The high street, historically located along Camden Passage in the village of Islington, has since been eclipsed by the more modern Upper Street, although people will still head here for the antiques market and boutiques. You'll find intriguing vintage shops nestled between the fashionable shops in this area, and do look out for the Banksy masterpieces as you stroll the streets. Islington is definitely an area for the foodie too, with cuisine from all around the world on offer.
There's a fantastic arts scene in Islington - also known as the capital's alternative theatre land - and it caters for both movie buffs and theatre lovers alike. There is an independent cinema and two reputable theatres in the area, notably Sadler's Well's which showcases world-class dance, the Almeida Theatre or the Little Angel Theatre for performances to entertain the children.
For couples or families wanting a unique city break in an area packed with style and close to the centre, Islington is a great choice.
