The geographical center of London’s East End, Shoreditch has long been the district’s beating heart – an eclectic, cosmopolitan, and ever-changing neighborhood favored by artists, students, and fashionistas. Sandwiched in-between the high-rise office blocks of Liverpool and the City to the west, and the vibrant Bangladeshi communities of Brick Lane to the southeast, modern-day Shoreditch is known for its lively markets, bold street art, and cutting edge nightlife.
The best way to explore the district is on a walking tour, taking in highlights such as Brick Lane, London’s ‘curry mile’; the famous Spitalfields Market; and the main thoroughfares of Old Street, Great Eastern Street and Shoreditch High Street. Alternatively, explore the district’s renowned street art on a photography tour of Shoreditch; discover the hip bars, music venues and clubs on a Shoreditch pub crawl; or tuck into some of the East End’s best street food on a food tasting tour of Shoreditch.
Shoreditch is located in London’s East End, just north of Whitechapel and west of Bethnal Green.
