Take A Virtual Stroll Through Angel And Islington With These Photos

Angel, Islington, was originally the name of a hotel and group of buildings on the corner of Pentonville Road. The name was then given to the nearby tube station, and has since been used colloquially to refer to the whole area. Upper Street is the main high street, known these days for its boutique shops and mixture of high-end and chain bars and restaurants, as well as a few other landmarks, as you'll see below.
