Grace Leslie of central London luxury residential developer Londonewcastle describes Clerkenwell and the area around Exmouth Market and says that is represents “hidden London; it feels like you have stepped off the beaten track and yet it is hugely central.”
“The atmosphere is created with friendly local businesses, cafes, independents and creatives well established, having been there a long time. The pedestrianised Exmouth Market enclave creates a relaxed cosmopolitan yet authentic vibe and the food stalls and market every Thursday and Friday is a great draw for people into the area and a destination for locals. Here you can find some of the world’s best eateries: St John’s, Moro, the iconic Spanish restaurant has been there for years, Medcalf and the Quality Chop House, The Eagle and many more eateries offer variety and vibrant menus.
Clerkenwell is a cultural destination, the home of Sadlers Wells and galleries add to the strong artistic heritage with Sam Taylor Wood and Mark Quinn and Clerkenwell Design Week runs in May”
