With village vibes and characterful industrial buildings, this historic pocket between the City and the West End was also once home to London’s clockmakers and bookbinders. Now it's where the young, upwardly mobile, and design-savvy chose to live - a far cry from it's earliest residents which were a sisterhood of nuns in the 17th century.
There are many reasons to live in this pretty, historical, and creative area. It is rapidly evolving with restaurants (which vary from gastropubs to Michelin-starred marvels), great bars, and galleries opening in abundance. It has more creative businesses per square mile than in any other part of the UK, attracting architects, designers, tech firms, and eco tea brewer and ice cream makers! Clerkenwell is also home to numerous museums and attractions.
