About Liz

I was born and raised in North London so I have a wealth of knowledge of the local area. This apartment also use to be my home during which time I carried out lots of valuable research :-) sampling all the local things to do and see, which I can now pass onto you! These personal recommendations include; restaurants, pubs, cocktail & wine bars, theatres, cinemas, live music and event venues as well as day trip and shopping ideas, which are all available in the handbook located in the apartment during your stay.

Liz purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Liz chose Islington

Amazing location just moment from the buzz of Upper Street with it's huge variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars. Easy to travel to all parts of London from here, with Highbury & Islington and Angel tube stations plus many bus routes near by. Located in a conservation area means the streets are very pretty and traditional.
