Islington Town Hall: Art Deco on Upper Street

Take an expert tour of Islington Town Hall  and see some stunning original  art deco style interiors and staircases, as well as the impressive council chamber in our 50 minute tour. Original clocks, paintings and decorative panels have survived for nearly a century in this lovely municipal building. Learn about the history and ambitions of the combined boroughs of Islington and Finsbury in the twentieth century. Islington Town Hall was designed in stages by the impressive social housing architect E.C.P. Monson. It  incorporated an Assembly  Hall, in the fashion of interwar town halls, and it remains a remarkably attractive landmark on Upper Street, a venue for weddings, council meetings and a thriving entertainment centre.

Meet outside the Town Hall at Upper Street N1 2UD at 11am for an hour’s tour.
