Leonard Street   Local Area

London's creative hub

Leonard Street is perfectly situated on the perimeter of Shoreditch and the City. Originally a medieval parish, Shoreditch became part of the new County of London in 1889 until it was changed to the metropolitan Borough of Shoreditch in 1899.

The area is seen as London’s creative hub. Old industrial buildings are now home to design groups, fashion houses, web technology companies as well as an eclectic mix of restaurants and shops, all contributing to the inspiring atmosphere. London Square Leonard Street is the perfect location for walking to work, centrally placed amongst a plethora of established and new cutting edge businesses.

An area that comes to life

The area is notable for its popular entertainment venues, many of which can be found around nearby Hoxton Square. When the sun goes down, Shoreditch’s personality changes and comes to life in the shape of vibrant bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants.


The local people of Shoreditch are the heart and soul of this magical location

You find artists, writers and poets enjoying the same enriching space as City financiers, restaurateurs, shop keepers and fitness enthusiasts, all with the same love for the area. But don't just take our word for it...
