New River

If you would like to escape the traffic of Upper Street, in Islington (or are just looking for nice walk between Angel and Highbury & Islington stations) you could visit the New River. Opened in 1613, this artificial waterway was created to supply London with drinking water.

Directions to the river can be found here: www.london-footprints.co.uk/wknewriverroute.htm
