Attractive, historic, creative and, above all, cool.
Clerkenwell ticks a lot of boxes.

Located in the heart of Islington, it’s changed rapidly in recent years. Today it’s known for its thriving creative, design, and tech businesses – the latter centred around Old Street’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’. It even boasts its own Design Week!

Clerkenwell is also within quick and easy reach of the City, West End, and central London thanks to its three tube stations. But if you really want to go native, two-wheel travel is the only way. Clerkenwell offers a wealth of eateries too, from street food markets to Michelin-starred restaurants, and everything in-between. And if you’re in need of liquid refreshment, it’s brim full of bars and pubs too.
