Welcome to Clerkenwell

It’s said that Clerkenwell is home to more creative businesses, interior designers and architects than anywhere else on the planet.

An area steeped in history, dating back to the 11th Century, Clerkenwell has evolved into a destination in itself. Nestled between the ever-evolving Kings Cross and bustling business in the City of London, Clerkenwell is a venerable den of creative industries and pursuits. Design studios and showrooms galore sit below the Brutalist paradise of the Barbican.  

Things to do

Visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to attractions in and around the area. A must in Clerkenwell, the Museum of the Order of St John is housed in a beautiful and very old building opposite St Johns Gate, with one of London’s most idyllic secret cloister gardens to relax in. Down the road, The Museum of London tells the often dramatic stories of the City, from medieval to modern.

Nearby are the London Symphony Orchestra at St Luke’s and the UK’s home of dance, Sadler’s Wells. And the new Elizabeth line station at neighbouring Farringdon serves to open up the area to even more visitors to the restaurants and bars around Smithfield...

Foodie’s will find Clerkenwell to be a little slice of heaven. World-class restaurants are scattered around, drawn in by the proximity to the meat market. The aptly names St JOHN on St Johns Street was opened in a former smokehouse. It serves simply prepared meals with carefully paired wines. Exmouth Market is home to the ever popular Moro, whose North African and Spanish tapas dishes keep regulars coming back for more.

If it’s food on the go you’re after, a bounty of choice awaits. Food markets on Whitecross Street, Leather Lane and Exmouth Market serve a cuisine from around the world everything from Ethiopian, Mexican, Thai and more at...
