Renowned for its range of architects, publishers and a
concentration of design professionals, Clerkenwell has a vibrant, trendy
reputation and a lively after-work scene. Featuring many popular bars and pubs,
Clerkenwell is a London destination in its own right, and as a result, it is one
of our most popular locations for serviced apartments in London.
A London district wouldn’t be complete without a tube
station within its boundaries, and Clerkenwell is no exception. Farringdon
station is joined by the Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan and London
Underground Circle, meaning the district is well equipped for commuting to and from our corporate serviced apartments in Clerkenwell. It is
worth noting that the district is within the London Congestion Charge Zone.
Farringdon Street, or the A201, links the district to Blackfriars and King’s
Cross. In the avoidance of delays and congestion fees, cycling is popular in
Clerkenwell, with the Cycle Superhighway 6 running directly to multiple areas
including Bloomsbury and Elephant and Castle. There are also two Quietways
nearby, enabling cyclists to avoid busy roads.
Food and Drink
Although our serviced apartments in Clerkenwell provide the luxury of a fully fitted kitchen, there are plenty of options in the area for
dining out. The stylish Anglo offers
contemporary, refined dishes with an emphasis on British ingredients, whereas
relaxed all-day venues such as Ask
for Janice provide fresh, delicious food within an informal environment –
perfect for a lunch with colleagues between business appointments. From sports
orientated bars, like Café Kick and Bounce
Farringdon (the home of ping pong), to decadent cocktail bars like The Gibson and Gunmakers, Clerkenwell is well
stocked with unique drinking venues for any occasion.
Clerkenwell is well stocked with high-end shopping facilities,
including the fashionable Clerkenwell London, which includes stores, a spa,
wine shop and perfumery. The district is also filled with unique, independent
shops which provide a sense of character – such as the International Magic Shop, and
the renowned, super-stylish stationery store, Present & Correct. When you
have a moment spare on your business trip to Clerkenwell, take a stroll through
its streets and enjoy the endless shopping opportunities right on the doorstep of our corporate serviced apartments in Clerkenwell.
Clerkenwell has many things to see and do, including
visiting the bustling and sensory sensational Exmouth
Market (as featured in our blog about
urban food in London)– which is a pleasure to browse and explore. If you are a literature
lover, you simply have to visit the nearby former home of Charles Dickens – The Charles Dickens Museum is where the
famous author wrote classics such as Oliver
Twist and Nicholas Nickleby, so
should be high on your list of places to visit from your serviced apartment in
Clerkenwell. You can even tour the incredible tunnels and exhibits of the Postal Museum, and discover the
history of this most British institution.
