Today this is manifested in Clerkenwell’s thriving design sector, luring a trendy young crowd of professionals who thrive in this dynamic environment. At the weekend, residents make the most of the area’s bustling markets, restaurants and bars, while enjoying a quick commute to the heart of the City of London during the week. Catering to this demographic, property in Clerkenwell is mostly made up of modern, high end flats and apartments, many of which boast stunning views over London’s skyline. Despite this central location, proximity to Farringdon station means a quick weekend getaway is always an option.
With the meat of Smithfield Market, London's first ever gastropub and the nose-to-tail Michelin-starred marvels at St John, Clerkenwell has long been a regular go-to spot for those who know a thing or two about eating and drinking. And it's only getting better, with any new restaurants and bars forced to impress by the sheer weight of the competition - you've got to be good to do well here.
