About Angel & Islington

Angel's location being just outside London's Inner City means it benefits from more affordable office space while barely sacrificing at all on transport links to the centre. The eastern branch of the northern line connects Angel directly to King's Cross, Old Street, Moorgate, Bank, London Bridge and Waterloo, meaning you can be at any of those hubs in less than 15 minutes.

These quick connections have made the area especially popular with small to mid-sized companies in publishing, tech and finance as they guarantee quick access to like minded organisations and potential clients.

With very few high rises located in Angel, the area strikes much more of a residential atmosphere than some of its neighbouring boroughs, but good supply means there's a good selection of office space available and some great serviced office options with TOG, Spaces and Workspace.

As you move north in the borough of Islington you sacrifice a little bit those direct connections in to the city but gain cheaper rates and transport links to East London and North London via the over-ground, Victoria Line and mainland rail services from Highbury & Islington. With several serviced office space located within minutes of the station this location could provide great value for money for anyone who doesn't mind adding an extra 5 minute to their journey into central London.


Angel & Islington has long been a cultural and artistic hub and this continues to this day. With a wide variety of coffee shops, bars, clubs and restaurants there's plenty of places to go to after work for your food and drink fixes.

If you're looking for something a bit different then there are plenty of options in the form of escape rooms, karaoke venues, dance at the Sadler's Wells  and live music at the Union Chapel.

Whatever you're looking for, you're bound to find it in Angel & Islington.
