Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Islington
Spreading untidily eastwards from King's Cross station, Islington is a gentrifying mix of Georgian terraces, leafy squares, well-worn markets and purpose-built offices. At its center is Angel tube station, which offers ready access to bars along Upper Street and Camden Passage, a pedestrian strip that transforms into an antiques market by day. Chapel Street is London's oldest market, with a strange combination of stalls hawking organic cheeses, defunct CDs and cheap hair products. George Orwell and Evelyn Waugh lived on Canonbury Square, a former low-rent district now better known as millionaires' row.

Historic yet hip as you please, London trades tabloid gossip during intermission at West End theater premieres, works up a fierce appetite for East End curry at Tate Modern art shows, and crooks its pinky over high tea at Claridge's before trying on Central Saint Martins' latest punk-chic for London Fashion Week.
