Islington incorporates the postcode areas N1, N4, N5, N6, N7, N8, N16, N19, EC1, EC2, NW5 and WC1 and is serviced by multiple tube and rail stations including Tufnell Park, Archway, Upper Holloway, Crouch Hill, Finsbury Park, Arsenal, Drayton Park, Holloway Road, Camden Road, Angel, Highbury & Islington, Canonbury, Caledonian Road & Barnsbury, Essex Road, Old Street and Farringdon.

Islington is known for its Victorian and Georgian townhouses set on communal garden squares. The housing stock also includes many flats in the form of converted terraces, warehouse conversions and modern new-build apartments.
