In Shoreditch, empty walls are future murals. The neighborhood’s industrial warehouses and dingy side streets offer plenty of potential space waiting to be reimagined. Old brick warehouses have transformed into interactive art galleries, and countless buildings have served as Banksy’s canvases. Shoreditch’s appeal as a creative playground stems (at least, in part) from an urban, gritty underbelly, but clean-cut treasures aren’t in short supply—Shoreditch’s design sensibilities also influence its trendy pubs and cafes.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
A Hub of Creativity
Hoxton is considered to be London's coolest urban area, a Mecca for the artistic, trendy and down right fashionable. Also, Hoxton has a strong Shakesperean history. In the 1500's Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet was perfomed here, starring William Shakespeare himself!"
Eclectic Eating and Drinking
The area hosts some of the best night spots, art galleries and restaurants in London. So please be aware that if you are staying on a Friday or Saturday night, it can be rather noisy in the area until about 2 A.M. The weekdays are very quiet though."
