Clerkenwell used to be a part of London's industrial heartland. Now it is home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else in the world. The area also happens to be very attractive, so it's no surprise that its historic old buildings are home to a fair few architects and designers.
Clerkenwell has also long been a regular spot for those who know a thing or two about food and drink with great restaurants and the meat of Smithfield Market.
It is one of the most important design hubs in the world, therefore attracts the international world of designers. It even has its own Clerkenwell Design Week.
For dining, we recommend Michelin-starred marvels and at St John for a celebration of British fare. We love Workshop Coffee for artisan coffee, great food all day and pretty interior with exposed-brick and wooden tables.
