Ours is a neighbourhood come of age - its new character built on creativity and innovation. Just as the edge that put Shoreditch on the map now comes with a dash of glamour and gloss, the City’s also changed its stripes. Its clean-cut stoicism shed in favour of a more textured cultural fabric of street food hangouts, boutique fashion houses and creative cowork spaces. A hotspot of culture as well as commerce.
This is where a new generation of London’s makers, shapers and influencers thrive and old conventions are put to one side.
FOOD & DRINK
Morning, noon and night, the City and Shoreditch are yours for the taking. Sample some of the best Mediterranean food north of the Alps, dip your toe into the lean, green world of plant-based cuisine or, for something more refined, you’ll discover ten Michelin Starred restaurants within a 20-minute walk.
Redchurch Street and Spitalfields have become the area’s most sought-after destinations for design and fashion - bywords for all things bespoke, boutique and independent. Browse everything from skin, hair and body care essentials to new clothing and eyewear labels.
From the 450-year-old Royal Exchange to more recent shopping and foodie destinations like Broadgate, the City is a kaleidoscope of different worlds scattered across ancient streets. A place showered with international acclaim, but where local knowledge still reigns.
