One of those charmless working-class neighbourhoods that, in the '90s, started to attract the attention of creative minds. With them came the opening of the alternative art galleries and interesting businesses that have turned it into what it is today.


In Shoreditch, today's empty wall is tomorrow's mural.
Neighbourhood industrial bays and shadowy side streets offer up a multitude of spaces waiting to be reinvented.

More than just a fascinating urban neighbourhood, it's a lifestyle.
