Highbury FieldsAs Islington's largest open space, Highbury Fields is popular with a trendy crowd of north Londoners, especially when the sun comes out to play at weekends. The elegant Georgian and Victorian town houses surrounding the greenery are a reminder of how this area has truly made it onto the map of glamorous city-living. With the buzzy bars and restaurants of Islington just down the road, this is a great spot for a summery day out - start off with a picnic on the grass and maybe a chilled game of frisbee or rounders and then head into town to join the throngs of people spilling out onto the pavement.
