About Angel

Angel, a district of London named after an 18th Century inn that features briefly in Oliver Twist (I had always wondered why it was called that), is now a rather chic area of Islington, just east of Kings Cross. Set in a pleasant and undemanding area, hotels in Angel are most noticeable to tourists for the surrounding collection of fashionable and unique shops and cafes which occupy an area called Camden Passage, just north of the station. Of particular note is Paul A. Young, in my opinion London’s finest chocolatier, and creator of the renowned Marmite chocolate truffle (though the Mayan Citrus is a personal favourite). Well worth going out of your way for.

Most Angel Hotels are clustered to the West around King’s Cross, which is the area’s major transport hub as well as home to the British Library. If it’s essential to stay in the area, the four star Hilton Islington is a dependable bet. Situated next to the Business Design Centre, the hotel is a quiet, modern building with an expansive, airy restaurant.

In a very similar vein, the Jurys Inn Islington is close to the station, modern and professional, though at three stars is slightly cheaper and slightly less well-appointed than the Hilton. The one star Swinton Hotel in Kings Cross is a good last-minute option, situated close to the station and set in a London town house. Its sparse bedrooms don’t offer much in the way of aesthetic pleasures, though.

Angel Station is on the Northern Line, between Kings Cross and Old Street.

Best Breakfast in Angel


If you’re staying in the Islington area and fancy a breakfast which

will really set you up for a day of exploring, the best choice is

undoubtedly The Rosemary Branch. A lovely spacious pub just north of

trendy Shoreditch, The Rosemary Branch boasts a powerful All Day

Breakfast that blows most pubs out of the water. Bounteous, wholesome

and supremely filling, it is also replete with surprising flourishes,

most notably a mustard-accented butter which seems like it shouldn’t

work, but ultimately transforms humble toast into one of the Full

English’s most memorable aspects. All the more traditional features are

also found in abundance, and cooked to a masterful level, with special

praise reserved for the bacon and sausages, which have a fresh,

barbequed flavour. As well as the varied and surprising menu, The

Rosemary Branch is also home to an ambitious small theatre venue

upstairs, past highlights of which include modern and classical

theatre, ballet and pantomime.
