Shoreditch has a high violent crime rate and a high property crime rate for London.


Shoreditch is London's capital of cool. Once the setting for Jack the Ripper's infamous murders, today this is a hip, urban area with trendy restaurants and tons of street art. It can also claim one of the best locations in London thanks to its proximity to just about everything. Its evolution into city darling has attracted a big population of tech companies (and the continually increasing cost of living has already driven several away).

Shoreditch is a good choice for foodies and craft beer aficionados. Bars, pubs, restaurants, and cafes line the streets. The area has the reputation of providing you with any food you want at any times, from food carts on the streets to Michelin-starred restaurants. Pizza East is one popular spot. A word of warning, however: the cachet of Shoreditch has made it a destination for party people on the weekend so some parts of the neighborhood can be quite loud at night.

There is a mix of housing from many different kinds of buildings, giving you plenty of options in terms of budget and style. There You've got classic London townhomes, Victorian and Georgian style terraces, and warehouses and factories that have been turned into apartments.

Shoreditch has an independent streak when it comes to shopping: you won't find many chain stores here. What you will find are boutiques selling vintage clothing, home goods stores showcasing top design talent, and local artisans creating unique and individualized wares. Even the malls here are unique – the Boxpark mall is crafted from old shipping containers.

Other amenities in the area include cinemas, art galleries, private clubs, a few museums, and basics like supermarkets and gyms.

Shoreditch is bordered on the north De Beauvoir Town, on the east by Haggerston, on the south by the City, and on the west by Clerkenwell.
