A message from the current owner
Gainsborough Studios is a safe, well-maintained building. It is situated between a canal and a park, and is populated by friendly people. The building won a gold medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects when it was completed. My flat is spacious, very well soundproofed and has a large terrace where we sit in the evening watching the sun go down. I also love watching the activity on the canal boats sailing up and down and wildlife flying by. Gainsborough has a supermarket, gym and cafe within the building. Residential car parking permits are available. Shoreditch Park is just across the road, where there are facilities for beach volleyball, rock climbing, table tennis and boules. A new leisure centre is being built nearby which will have a six lane 25m swimming pool and water features. Bikes are available for hire in the park and I often cycle over to Tate Modern to see an art exhibition - it takes me 15 minutes to get there. I feel connected to London living here.

69 Colebrooke Row
One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.
Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!
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!
