The daddy cool of East London, Shoreditch has earned itself legendary status over the past decade transforming from a dodgy den on the edge of the City to London’s coolest creative and tech hub. Bursting with independent shops, restaurants and bars all fighting to be cooler and quirkier than their neighbours, from Michelin star restaurants to the ultimate caffeine fix, you’d be hard pushed to not find somewhere to take your fancy here. The Shoreditch skyline has changed considerably in recent years with uber slick new build developments towering over a mix of more traditional property from ex-local authority flats to pockets of Victorian and Georgian terraces with a smattering of warehouse and loft conversions. Just a stone’s throw distance from the city, with excellent transport links to the rest of London and beyond, the neighbourhood that never sleeps is the ultimate big kids’ playground for creatives and city slickers alike.
