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.
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.
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...
David - Owner of Eyre Brothers Restaurant
‘At Eyre Brothers we create food that is a little old fashioned. Food shouldn’t be complicated. Great cuisine based around simplicity and full sumptuous flavours, created in the homes of Spanish or Portuguese Grandmothers. Our customers love the big flavours with rough edges; nobody leaves here hungry!’
Ridhi - Gym Director at Ultimate Performance
‘Our gym is widely regarded as the leading results based personal training company in the UK. Working here at Ultimate Performance as well as within this fabulous area is a pure joy!
When I pop out at lunchtime I have such a selection of food shops and deli’s to choose from. Shoreditch is all about variety. At night it’s THE place in London to be. We often go for a meal and then on to a bar! It’s all here on your doorstep!’
Jamie - Local Resident, Actor/Model
'Living in this area is great as I can literally walk to screen tests and auditions. It’s great being surrounded by cool like-minded people who are constantly pushing the barriers of originality, fashion, architecture and living. It’s the “yeah, let’s do it” attitude that just makes this area a cut above the rest of London.
When I’m out with friends for a bite to eat, the group consists of city boy suits to photographers and tattoo artists. It really is an exciting, creative and vibrant area.'
