Iconic architecture and home to some of the most renowned restaurants in London, Clerkenwell's modern evolution is as impressive as it's historical standing is significant. The former habitat of Dickens and Cromwell was previosuly regarded as London's Little Italy and is still regarded as the spiritual home for the capital's Italian community.
To Eat and Drink
Clerkenwell's food and drink offering is both rich in variety and tough to look beyond in when it comes to quality. Korean delicacies courtesy of Tohbang, Shaun Shearley's revered Quality Chop House, Little Italy's old legend L Terroni and Sons and the unapologetically brash Tongue and Brisket are all evidence of an area spoilt with tradition and modernity in equal measure.
To See and Do
Charming, creative and historical, Clerkenwell plays host to some of the capital's must see spots. Tucked discretely away behind Angel station sits Sadler's Wells, one of the world's leading dance institutions. The sites, sounds and smells of Exmouth Market will keep you coming back day after day – whether you're at work or not. And we can't not mention the home – and now museums – of one of the greatest author's of all time, Charles Dickens.
