We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

I walked this route from Islington to Angel.

I was really quite pleased with this one! The quiet streets are really lovely and pleasant for walking. The St Mary's Churchyard is a standout of the whole route, as is the stretch along the Duncan Terrace gardens. My one beef of the route is that looping down to Pentonville Road is unnecessary when the route could cut over on Duncan Street. Not a huge deal. Overall, a really great route.

Walked Angel to Highbury.
I wasn’t sure why it dropped down to City Road at the start, but I think the walk through Duncan Terrace Gardens is worth the diversion, it is a very special place.
After that I thought by and large it was very successful at staying off the main roads and being direct as well.
An added bonus was going past the Little Angel Theatre, a puppet theatre. A performance of Pinoccio was taking place as I passed by.
Well worth its snail.

A pleasant alternative to walking down Upper Street.

Away from major roads for most of the time, and some sections entirely traffic free including the lovely Duncan Terrace / Colebrooke Row Gardens which are carefully planted and beautifully maintained, following the route of the New River (which is underground at this point).

Nice route through the quiet back streets of Islington.

Lovely walk with great buildings all the way to Angel. Would do it again! Though would be nice if the walk could link to the canal so one could walk to kings cross this way.

Make sure to walk through the lovely public gardens alongside Compton Terrace and Duncan Terrace.
