Northampton Square is a town square in Islington, north London. It houses City University London's main campus at one end. The Ewan McGregor film Incendiary was filmed partly at this location.

The square has historically housed clockmakers, jewellers, silversmiths and other fine crafts.

In August 2008, Northampton Square bandstand was the inaugural venue for the musical entertainment Big Summer Busk.[1]
