London - Clerkenwell, Shoreditch & Spitalfields (Chapter)
This is the Clerkenwell, Shoreditch & Spitalfields chapter from Lonely Planet's London guidebook.
This redeveloped area boasts top sights (Geffrye Museum, Georgian Spitalfields, White Cube Gallery), excellent markets (Exmouth Market, Spitalfields Market, Brick Lane Market) and an edgy creative frisson, but it's at night when things truly come alive.
- wander through wonderfully preserved Georgian Spitalfields, before emerging onto exuberant and cacophonous Brick Lane to explore Banglatown and the hip bars, shops and cafes of the Old Truman Brewery
- squeeze into some skinny jeans and heading to Shoreditch for cocktails and carousing
- restaurants & bars
- make the agonising choice between the exciting foodie options on Exmouth Market
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Explore: Clerkenwell,, Shoreditch & Spitalfields, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Clerkenwell, Shoreditch & Hoxton, Spitalfields, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
