Why not explore the nearby areas of Hoxton, De Beauvoir Town, Shoreditch, Dalston, Spitalfields, Bethnal Green, Islington, Barbican, Clerkenwell and Canonbury

"In 1980 journalist Duncan Campbell entered (illegally) down an access shaft in Bethnal Green and attempted to cycle to Westminster. He was amazed at how well maintained and extensive the tunnels were under the city and had no need of a map as they were very well signposted."

The arrival of the London Overground in Haggerston has really opened up this area for commuters.
