A little about our history
Nestled at the back of Angel station, The Islington Metalworks is a completely unique venue, steeped in history. Built in the late 19th Century, all three floors were initially used to stable the horses that pulled the trams for London Transport. In 1925 it was converted into a metal works. This element of the business is still running successfully today. Much of the building has now been restored, creating a number of inspiring spaces. We hold a wide variety of functions including weddings, club nights, gigs, exhibitions, fashion shows, and corporate parties. To name but a few. The premises are also used frequently as a film location.

It Was a Perfect Day
The Metal Works was a fantastic venue for our Wedding reception - quirky and adaptable, and the staff worked with us to ensure that we had everything just as we wanted it, coming up with some great suggestions too - from the pineapple and cheese on sticks, to the fireworks above the glass roof during our first dance.
