  • Visitor Information

Built in the late 19th century, The Islington Metalworks is a building steeped in history. All three floors were initially used to stable the horses that pulled the trams for London Transport. In 1925 the building, nestled at the back of Angel station, was converted into a metal works and this element of the business is still running today. Also available as a venue to hire, much of the building has now been restored creating a number of spaces suitable for weddings, club nights, gigs, exhibitions, fashion shows, and corporate parties.
