Enjoy a morning coffee from Ozone, located in an industrial chic building just a stone’s throw from Old Street station. These guys are from New Zealand too – so you know the coffee will be good! Or how about a brew from Shoreditch Grind! The name might be a touch misleading – but this hot spot is just a short 5 minute walk from the apartment.


For the name alone, and a quick pic for the gram or your Gran, why not visit Look Mum No Hands! An eclectic spot just an 8 minute walk from our Old Street property! If you’re keen on bikes, you’ll find your tribe here.


As the night roles on, you might need more than an espresso to keep you going, so why not visit these popular spots.


The Bootlegger pays homage to the prohibition era. Sip an old fashioned and enjoy some delicious food after a long day exploring the city streets. Gatsby attire optional. Or enjoy excellent food and fantastic vibes at McQueen. If steak is a favourite, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Or a little closer to home, visit The Artillery Arms, a traditional English pub. If you happen to be staying on a Sunday, head along to their weekly pub quiz! Just £2 per person, and like that famous Abba song ‘The Winner Takes it All’.


If in doubt, you will always find something at the famous Brick Lane! East London is known for its eclectic food and markets. Make a point to visit this tourist hotspot while you’re here. 


For The History Buffs


As the name suggests, Old Street is…old. Dating back as far as 1200, it lies on the path of an old Roman (maybe even pre-Roman) track. 


And many a character has roamed these cobbled streets. Like Shakespeare, whose early plays were first performed in Shoreditch. Comedian and activist Russell Brand. Even King Henry VIII’s jester called this area of London home, and now rests in Shoreditch! For those into street art, Old Street has become a popular location for Banksy and Jef Aérosol, to name a few.

With access to Old Street Station – you can walk through London’s financial district and be at Tower Hill in 40 minutes. Or catch the Underground and be there in 20 minutes via London Bridge station. Or why not visit Leadenhall Market, where parts of Diagon Alley were filmed for the Harry Potter movies. Just a 20 minute bus ride from our Old Street home.

If Museums are your thing, why not visit The Museum of London. Bonus points – it’s free (then again, most are). Or, for a more niche but equally as interesting experience, it might be worth visiting The Museum of the Order of St John. Track the rich (and ancient) history of this service we so greatly value today! And just a 15 minute walk from Old Street.
