Area Guide to Old Street

Move over Silicon Valley, it’s all about Silicon Roundabout. Once a grey thoroughfare, Old Street has transformed itself into the capital’s tech hub, fusing city slick with East London cool. The Undergound and Northern Rail provide great transport links, while the iconic roundabout is undergoing redevelopment to make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists. From spacious warehouse conversions and loft apartments to brand new developments, the property on offer around Old Street is as edgy and cool as the area itself. 


It’s not all algorithms and start-ups though. Old Street’s culinary, art and wellness scene is booming. Queues snake down the road for On the Bab’s Korean street food while street art by the likes of Banksy sits alongside modern art in boutique galleries. The historic Ironmonger Row Baths – possibly London's most affordable spa – provides the perfect sanctuary for a spot of self-care. 


Countless coffee shops fuel the Old Street tech tribe by day, but come happy hour, it’s all about cocktails at Callooh Callay, Nightjar and Happiness Forgets. To soak it all up, the many restaurants of Hoxton Square and Shoreditch High Street are just a stroll away.
