The historic region of Clerkenwell has a lot to offer Londoners and visitors alike
Like most great global cities, London has plenty of districts which tourists often overlook but which really deserve more attention. I’ve lived in the Clerkenwell area for nearly 18 months now and I am totally loving it. It’s an artsy, design-led neighborhood that takes its coffee very seriously and is blessed with a plethora of great cafes and restaurants.
Centrally located, it’s close to the City of London and the West End and has easy access to the Kings Cross/St Pancras transport hub.
Whether you’re visiting from out of town or a London local looking to explore a new area, here’s a few highlights to get you started.
The lease on my flat in Clerkenwell is nearly up and I’ll be moving on, but it’s been a great 18 months getting to know a really cool and livable part of London.
