As part of the London Borough of Hackney, Hoxton is a hub of thriving activity due to its popularity with such a broad spectrum of people; from the financiers of the near by City area, to the many artists, musicians,families and tourists who flock to the area for work, to live, or for days and nights out in this ever changing corner of London.
After the second World War Hoxton was seen as the home of poverty and prostitution; prior to that it was home to William Shakespeare, as well as playing host to a bustling textile industry. Sadly the boom did not last, and it was not until the regeneration of the area in the 1990’s that it began to pick up in popularity as a place to visit and live once again.
Now a cutting edge location, Hoxton is the domain of arts, entertainment, architecture and fashion, not least because of its unique boutiques, quirky independent eateries, the near by famous Spitalfields market, plus you are only four minutes on the tube from Statford Westfield Shopping centre. It is also boasts several internationally renowned galleries such as the White Cube gallery which showcased legendary artist Damien Hirst’s first solo show.
In terms of bars, cafes and restaurants, there are many for its residents and visitors to choose from including Elbow Rooms, The Book Club, Shoreditch House, The Breakfast Club and F Cooke’s Pie and Mash. Even this minimal list demonstrates the sheer diversity of places to eat in Hoxton.
Homes styles around Hoxton include period terraces, warehouse conversion and new build flats making it an ideal viewing spot for buyers from any walk of life. It is also well connected via the Old Street underground and is a great area of cyclists.
