Angel is one of my favourite areas in London. Plenty of shops and food places, good supermarkets (Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, M&S,...), a daily market and more. A lot nicer and pleasant than the (crowded) touristy areas in London.

Great place to hang out... bars, restaurants, shops, cinemas. More a local hangout than a tourist one. Accessible on Northern Line or many buses, including 73 bus from Oxford Street.
