The Shoreditch Stunner
Just east of London’s Square Mile, in what was formerly the city’s entertainment district, is a hipster destination known as Shoreditch. Along its cobbled streets, you’ll find an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants, independently owned boutiques, craft cafes, book shops, galleries, gastropubs, and noodle bars. The area has been home to waves of religious refugees, the working-class, and young creatives. Ever evolving, with its stylish and fluid character, it is becoming London’s trendiest neighbourhood.
In your search for somewhere fabulous to stay during your time in London, you may discover this “Shoreditch Stunner” listed on airbnb.ca. Aptly named, this sprawling loft space has two bedrooms and an open-plan living area; it is suitable for 4 guests. This 150m long converted warehouse overlooks historic St. Leonard’s Church, in the heart of Shoreditch. The apartment is also available on plumguide.com, as “The King of Shoreditch”. From the king bed in the master bedroom, you are within 5 km of the Tower of London, The British Museum, Soho, The Shard, and Kingís Cross, with its endless destinations.
The loft is bright, artsy and airy. While its colourful murals, unique sculptures, and surprising originals lend a quirky, bohemian vibe, the lush plants, extensive library, and local custom-made furniture make it feel like home.
