Shoreditch, Hoxton & Haggerston


SHOREDITCH is the birthplace of the Hackney hipster. In the heart of the East End, on the edge of the City, it remains one of the capital's most popular nighttime destinations. 

Visit Hoxton Square in the heart of Shoreditch

A dizzying array of bars, clubs and restaurants makes Shoreditch a top pick for a Friday or Saturday night out.

By day, the area becomes a high-end retail mecca with luxury brands moving in to sit next to the independent boutiques and art galleries that line the cobbled side streets.

Where the past meets the future, Shoreditch is the home of Hackney’s booming digital, media and creative industry sector - dubbed Tech City.

And don't forget a visit to Hoxton Square to enjoy the White Cube gallery, the home of the world-renowned Young British Artists (YBA) movement.

Take a stroll from Shoreditch Park to Broadway Market, along the Regent's Canal, and stop off along the way in Haggerston, at the Towpath Cafe or Waterline bar for some refreshments, or relax in the Green Flag award-winning Haggerston Park.
