We are planning a trip to the UK and will be spending a week in London. We are looking at an apartment rental in the Islington area very near to King's Cross Station. We are wondering if this is a good area to explore London. We like to walk and steep ourselves in the local culture - that is, we are not interested in staying in the conventionally touristy areas. We are looking for a neighborhood that has lots of multi-cultural restaurants and interesting shops along with other cultural activities and great access to public transportation. Is this area too remote to explore London in a week?

Thank you for your help.
