Look At London

Islington and Finsbury joined together in 1965 to make the London Borough of Islington. Finsbury was once part of a great fen or wetland. Islington was a small hilltop village well known for its dairies. Most of the area was open countryside until the 18th century.

Islington is also an exciting modern place. The old Royal Agricultural Hall - a great Victorian exhibition space - has been reformed as the Business Design Centre, which still holds trade fairs like the Mac Expo.
