Hi, I’m Islington London
local explorer & storyteller
Hi, it’s Islington London, that someone quietly reading a book on a bench in Islington Green, jogging by Regent’s Canal, wandering into artisan stores and workshops or having a pint at the Narrowboat. A big warm welcome to The Islington Storyteller blog and newsletter!
Throughout the year and a half after starting the curation of @islington_london, our editor, Ana, met and chatted with dozens of locals, each with a unique story to tell. It seemed unfortunate that very few people had the opportunity to discover the multitude of hidden gems our neighbourhood is lucky to have. For this reason, it felt only natural to create a space for sharing special things about Islington and nearby areas.
Alongside @islington_london, The Islington Storyteller explores some of the most unique stories about our neighbourhood. Here you can find interviews, history highlights, guides on things to do, places to visit, food to try and much more.

The initiative is powered by a diverse team of committed contributors – from published authors and food critics to filmmakers, local entrepreneurs and students! All of us are united by a mission to share our exploration of the neighbourhood with fellow Islington lovers.
What began as a fun side-hustle during pandemic lockdowns, quickly grew into a community of residents, local entrepreneurs, restauranteurs, artists and students, all united through sharing what we love about our neighbourhood lives.Ana, editor at the islington storyteller
