I cant imagine anyone wanting to go to ISLINGTON
You might as well have it in Central Park NY at night or maybe in the Broncs or even Iraq.
Well, all I can say is dont forget the mace and maybe it would be a good idea if you all had motorbike crash helmets on when you leave the building.
It's not as bad as you paint it... I can get out of my brain drunk and still get safely home in Islington, and there are some good pubs and legend clubs there! Leave Islington alone! London as a whole is only as dangerous as you let it be to you, like any city anywhere in the world. Advice is that wherever you are, take the same precautions you would in the city you live in/ nearest to you.
I felt just as safe walking around Downtown Boston looking like a potential mugging victim in broad daylight as I did in Islington at night. Oh, and I only say Downtown Boston, because my auntie turned white when I told her where I had spent the day. Looked nice to me. I found a lovely Greek restaurant too!
