England

A locals' guide to England

"Canonbury and Islington are renowned for their beautiful Regency architecture that attracts so many of the local residents."

Daniel Burrell

"Within touching distance of the West End, yet retaining a vibrant neighbourhood feel, Islington is a smart choice for buyers and tenants."

Daniel Burrell

"We're so lucky to have so many shops, bars and restaurants right on the doorstep of our office!"

What is your favourite place?

Where do England locals go?

Newington Green Fruit and Vegetables

There isn't a vegetable or a piece of fruit that you cannot buy here. Amazing presentation and CHEAP!

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

Towpath

I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!

Belle époque

Delicious bread and cakes that look too perfect to eat!

Geffrye Museum

If you can't face the crowds at London's bigger museums, head to this place for a quieter and nicer experience. This museum is all about the home throughout the centuries and the café sells delicious cakes too!

Tangerina

Great breakfasts and lunches and the only café in the area to open early. And they have food from Brazil too! OMG, I am so excited that this is my new local!

Frederick's

Great wine, superb food and awesome al fresco dining in their garden during the warmer months.

The Sampler

The best place to quaff on the finest wines around without having to buy a bottle! Very highbrow.

The Canonbury Tavern

A public house since the early 1700's, The Canonbury Tavern was refurbished in 2009 giving the residents of Islington one of the best pub gardens in the city and a superb roast lunch on a Sunday. Moreover, the beautiful garden offers an escape from chaotic city life.

Ottolenghi

Not great if you're on a budget. However, if you want to push the boat out and want tasty Turkish-inspired food, you're in luck!

The Highbury Barn

One of the most succulent chicken roasts you'll ever taste in a pub, with all of their meats supplied from the organic butcher just across the road.

The Camden Head

A fantastic boozer in the heart of Camden Passage. Sit out in the beer garden watching the locals mooching around the market stalls.

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

New Culture Revolution

Off the beaten track. Amazing dim sum and very good value for money.

"The first canned food was patented by a merchant in Hoxton called Peter Durand in 1810. Sadly the invention of the can opener was still fifty years away and they had to be opened by a hammer!"
