The East End of London today is synonymous with trendy pop-up boutiques, alternative wine bars and artisan coffee shops; making it a desirable destination for both tourists and native Londoners alike. Shoreditch especially is a neighbourhood which has seen great regeneration in the past few years, making it the place to be seen on the London nightlife circuit. With 24 hour buses and taxi ranks in the area, it couldn’t be easier for hotel guests to sample the area’s famously quirky pubs, clubs and live music venues.
Just a stone’s throw from this Islington – Shoreditch – Whitechapel area hotel is the historic and financial heart of the capital, the City of London. Commonly referred to as simply ‘The City’, this area was originally a walled ancient Roman settlement and several monuments from this era are still preserved, such as the Temple of Mithras. Today, the City’s skyline is mostly dominated by breathtakingly impressive skyscrapers and futuristic architecture, symbolising the capital’s financial importance. An exception to this is the imposing dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, one of London’s most iconic sights. Open for the public to admire its intricately gilded ceilings and stained glass, the Cathedral also boasts a viewing gallery with panoramic views over the city and a highly regarded restaurant.
Hotel accommodation to the east of the city is advantageous for tourists owing to the excellent public transport connections the area boasts. The Islington/Shoreditch area is served primarily by the Northern and Victoria underground lines, allowing hotel guests to swiftly navigate the city and experience all that this buzzing metropolis has to offer. Those after a traditional tourist itinerary are encouraged to travel down to the banks of the River Thames to admire Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and the Tower of London; whilst those familiar with the city may wish to indulge in some retail therapy on Oxford Street or at Harrods in Knightsbridge.
