A day in Angel, Islington
Our showroom is located on Danbury Street, a tranquil street in Angel, Islington that allow our brides to relax and enjoy a calm and private appointment. We are so lucky to be situated at the heart of such a beautiful area and wanted to show all of our brides some of the wonderful places to visit before or after your appointment with us. Why not make a day of it with your family and friends?
We are just a short walk from Angel station which takes you on a little wander through Regents Canal. This is such a picturesque walk with stunning willow trees, canal boats and plenty of spots to sit and enjoy a coffee whilst watching the boat owners go about their day. If you walk a little further up you will find the lock and Islington tunnel. A lovely place to capture some photos.
This will bring you up onto Danbury Street, home to the AH Showroom & Studio. Here you will enjoy a wonderful appointment with our team, try your favourite styles and hopefully find the one! To make an appointment simply book online here.
If you have a morning appointment with us we’d highly recommend taking a little walk up to Camden Passage, one of the prettiest spots in Islington. Full to the brim with coffee shops, cafes, antique markets, homeware and wellness boutiques! There are so many places to grab a coffee or a bite to eat and de-brief after your wedding dress appointment. Some of our favourites include Frequency, The Breakfast Club and Kipferl. They all offer something different depending on what you fancy.
If you’re in the mood for a pamper session with your family or friends why not head to London Grace to get a new manicure or pedicure? The perfect pick me up and a lovely place to test out nail colours for your wedding day. For skincare head on over to Caudalie Boutique Spa, they offer facials, massages and an array of beautiful natural products. No time like the present to perfect your skincare routine and de-stress in the lead up to your wedding.
After your lunch it’s definitely worth a little stroll down Colebrooke Row to see the amazing willow trees. Such a pretty street, walk a little further and you’ll come across Pophams Bakery – why not pick up some sweet treats for your partner and to enjoy later in the day!
