CLERKENWELL IS ONE OF CENTRAL LONDON’S MOST DYNAMIC LOCATIONS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS POPULARITY AMONG THE TECHNOLOGY, MEDIA AND CREATIVE INDUSTRIES. SITUATED JUST TO THE NORTH OF THE CITY AND FARRINGDON, WEST OF SHOREDITCH AND EAST OF MIDTOWN, CLERKENWELL OFFERS SOME OF THE BEST TRANSPORT CONNECTIONS AND AMENITIES IN LONDON.
Clerkenwell has a rich industrial past. Many of the remaining Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian warehouse buildings were previously occupied by the engineering, printing, publishing, brewing and food trades. The area was also known for clock and watch manufacture. While some vestiges of these trades remain, the area has been transformed to provide a variety of high end loft style apartments and new build residential schemes. Former factories have been turned into showroom spaces or offices, providing some the most architecturally desirable business accommodation in London, especially for the creative, design and TMT sectors.
The area is home to a wide variety of excellent bars, restaurants and pubs. Outstanding restaurants such as Grainger & Co, Sosharu, The Quality Chop House, St John Restaurant, The Bleeding Heart, Club Gascon and Moro are all located within Clerkenwell. These first class restaurants are complimented by a range of fashionable bars, nightclubs and hotels, together with an excellent selection of cafes and pubs.
