More information about Islington

Islington, a borough of London and part of Inner London, is one of the country's most important and influential business districts due to its close proximity to both London and the City of London. It is known for its strong connections to both the car industry, finance industry and motorsport. This article will take an in-depth look at the history of Islington, its connections to these industries, and its demographics.


Islington has a long and storied history that goes all the way back to the Roman period when a settlement called Vaecluston grew up on the banks of the River Thames. During the Middle Ages, the area was a major centre for trade with numerous inns, factories and markets. Later it became a popular place for the wealthy to build homes and estates, which has greatly influenced the architecture in Islington today.

In the 18th century, Islington was known as a 'pleasure garden' with numerous theatres, restaurants, pubs, and clubs. It was during this period that the car industry began to develop in earnest with the first car factory, the Islington Motors Company, set up in 1870. This was one of the earliest car manufacturers in Britain and helped to establish the area as a centre for the production and sale of motor vehicles.

Car industry

The Islington car industry is one of the most important in London and the UK. It produces a wide range of vehicles including luxury cars, sports cars, electric vehicles and specialist vehicles.

The most famous car manufacturer based in Islington is Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. The company is headquartered in the borough and produces a range of vehicles, from luxury saloons to supercars. Jaguar Land Rover, another world-renowned car manufacturer, also has its headquarters in Islington, producing an extensive range of cars and SUVs.

Islington is also home to a number of niche car manufacturers including Caparo Vehicle Technologies, an electric vehicle specialist, and BAC (Briggs Automotive Company) which produces the high-performance Mono supercar.

Finance industry

The finance industry is another important part of Islington's economy. The borough is home to some of the UK's most important financial institutions including the London Stock Exchange, the Bank of England, and a number of large banks and hedge funds. This makes Islington an important hub for the finance industry and provides a great deal of employment opportunities in the area.


Islington's connection to the car industry has also made it an important centre for motorsport. The borough is home to a number of racing teams and individuals, as well as a range of shops and garages specialising in car and motorsport related products.

Islington was once home to the famous Brands Hatch race track. This historic circuit was the venue of many famous races and hosted numerous championship events such as Formula One and British Touring Car Championships. The track closed in 2006 and the site is now used for residential and leisure purposes.
