Simplicity and functionality define St. Luke’s. Situated just north of London’s financial headquarters and business center, St. Luke’s is a mild-mannered neighborhood best identified by the steeple and church that now serve as a concert hall and rehearsal space. Committed to community engagement, the neighborhood hosts a daily pedestrian market and bustles with activity during the rush of high-powered lunch-hours. Outside of its marketplace, no-fuss flats and cottages line this traditional neighborhood’s tree-lined streets.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
