More about 

The Islington Metal Works is a completely unique central London venue. Built in the late 19th Century our 30,000 sq. ft Victorian premises is conveniently located directly behind Angel tube station.

All 3 floors were initially used to house the horses that kept London's early public transport system moving. In 1925 the building was converted into a metal works, an element of the venue that we continue to operate to this day. The building is now restored creating a number of unique spaces frequently used for a variety of events, gigs, weddings, corporate events, exhibitions and much more...
