Islington is an area located north of central London, which is the capital of the UK and Europe's largest financial center. It's a popular spot for Londoners to hang out and is known for its luxuriant greenery. Famous for its freshwater springs since the Middle Ages, it became a resort for Londoners who wanted to enjoy nature during the 18th century. However, due to the damage the city suffered during World War II, Islington lost its popularity. And then came the 60s. Young people reassessed its charms and once again, it became a crowded bustling, trendy hot spot.
