Spitalfields oozes charm from every corner of its historic streets. Once celebrated for its Dickensian character, a popular location for feature films, it’s now known for its chic boutiques and hip bars and award winning restaurants. Always popular with artists, Gilbert and George and Tracy Emin are long standing residents, it now hosts an exciting range of galleries and design shops. Located just outside the old walls of the City of London it has excellent transport links.

There are so many new bars, restaurants and clubs opening up in the area that it’s hard to keep up sometimes. I really enjoy steak and cocktails at Hawksmoor on Commercial Street, wonderful fresh sourdough and Eccles cakes at St John Bread and Wine (sister restaurant to Michelin starred St John’s), pizza at Pizza East and cocktails at Conran’s Boundary restaurant with panoramic views over the rooftops of Shoreditch. Shoreditch House, part of the Soho House Group, with its stunning roof top pool, spa and restaurants is a 5 minute walk way. On a Sunday it’s always fun to walk to Columbia Road flower market bustling with colour and character. Or check out the young designer/maker stalls in Spitalfields market, whilst snacking on some tasty street food from around the globe. Finally for a bit of boutiqu-ing then Redchurch street has a great mix of cutting edge fashion, eclectic interiors and organic beauty shops.


It’s a 5 minute walk from Liverpool Street Station which hosts the Central, Hammersmith and City an circle underground lines as well as overland services direct to Stanstead. You can be in Oxford circus in 20 minutes and Sloane square in 25 minutes.
