Shoreditch

A fashionable postcode in the heart of London's alternative scene

"Walking along Great Eastern Street, it is clear to see this area's artistic past and present."

Andrew Phillips

"Just off Bishopsgate, Middlesex Street leads to charming alleyways that are lined with pubs and shops."

Josh Walsh

"The combination of historic and modern excites me..to the East is the delights of Brick Lane and to the West is the City...all based around Spitalfields cobbled market, where it seems you can buy anything..."

Where do Shoreditch locals go?

The Breakfast Club

Fantastic breakfast dishes served throughout the day, but be warned, it gets very busy at the weekend, so expect to queue.

BIRD

The only place in London to do a bacon doughnut... They also have amazing chicken and lunchtime deals in the week!

Finsbury Avenue Square Market

Every other Tuesday there is a wonderful artisan market with everything from cheese and wine stalls, haggis toasties and Japanese food, to the more standard but delicious cakes, cookies and doughnuts!

Quaker Street Coffee & Bubble Tea

Very good coffee and bubble tea for the children.

Ozone Coffee Roasters

Proper coffee in warehouse-style surroundings and food too, served from breakfast through to dinner.

Cereal Killer Café

Much talked about, this place epitomises all that is trendy in the Shoreditch area!

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium

Delicious afternoon tea in the company of adorable cats that live in the café.

The Breakfast Club

Always busy, with great breakfasts throughout the day, as well as lunch and dinner menus.

Casa Blue

Try the goldfish bowls in this trendy cocktail bar on Brick Lane...

Urban Food Fest

This food festival off Shoreditch High Street is there every Saturday throughout the day and late into the night. There's loads of delicious food stalls with cuisines from all over the world and bars serving tasty cocktails.

Geffrye Museum

If you can't face the crowds at London's bigger museums, head to this place for a quieter and nicer experience. This museum is all about the home throughout the centuries and the café sells delicious cakes too!

Beigel Bake

This infamous 24/7 bagel bakery is a firm favourite with both locals and tourists - the salt beef bagel is certainly hard to beat!

Brick Lane

You'll be spoilt for choice along Brick Lane when it comes to curry houses! The deals that some restaurants offer are out of this world...

Towpath

I love a weekend walk along Regent's Canal with a glass of rosé from Towpath.

"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."

  1. About Shoreditch

    Shoreditch is an area of London within the London Borough of Hackney. It is a built-up part of the inner city immediately to the north of the City of London, located 2.5 miles (4.0 km) east north east of Charing Cross. Shoreditch has, since around 1996, become a popular and fashionable part of London. Often conflated with neighbouring Hoxton, the area has been subject to considerable gentrification in the past twenty years, with accompanying rises in property prices. During the second 'dot-com' boom the area has become popular with London based web technology companies who base their head offices around Old Street.
