The area of Shoreditch, in the eastern part of London, has become recognized as a fashionable part of the city over the past decade or so, with former industrial buildings being converted into offices and apartments. Part of its appeal is the graffiti that adorns the district, giving it a gritty edge. Recently it has become synonymous with web technology companies which have taken up residence around Old Street, which is also the location of pubs, clubs, restaurants, and galleries every bit as trendy as those over in the west.
- Spend an afternoon browsing around the elegant Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch, which is representative of the changing styles of the English middle-class living rooms dating back to the 17th century.
- Join in the vibrant atmosphere at Brick Lane Market on a typical London Sunday morning, where bargains galore can be found amongst the wonderful street entertainers.
- Have a great evening of laughs at the Shoreditch Comedy Café. Entertainment all the way with innovative comics, plus live music, and even a pop up theatre. This London venue is one of the capital's top nightspots.
The nearest London underground stations to Shoreditch are Liverpool Street and Old Street, both on the East London Line, but there is also an overland station at Shoreditch High Street. There are many bus routes that traverse the area, such as the number 35, which runs from Clapham Junction past London Bridge. The number 8 takes you to and from Oxford Circus, whilst the number 26 bus links with Waterloo. Of course, you will never be too far away from a taxicab no matter where you are in London.
