Call us biased, but we believe it’s no exaggeration to say that East London’s grungy, gritty, grimy Shoreditch is probably the most inventive and creative spot in the whole of Europe. Don’t believe us? It has four Michelin-starred restaurants, some of the best Vietnamese spots in the capital, hotels that span the range from techtastic playful budget spots to gorgeous five-star hotel/clubs with basement clubs and rooftop pools, more concept stores and indie boutiques packed into its few square miles than the rest of London put together, and the best coffee spots, bar none. Add in arts centres, galleries, studios, markets, bars and clubs, and you have an area of London that is a go-to spot for anyone keen to experience a city at its most cutting-edge and modern. So whatever else you do in London, do Shoreditch.
