Clerkenwell has long been a fashionable and vibrant place to live and work but in recent decades it has emerged as a prominent hub for media, design and technology companies operating in London and beyond. Lying just north of the City and in close proximity to Holborn and the West End, Clerkenwell is extremely well connected to the rest of London while having a historic and typically English charm of its own. As part of the Borough of Islington, Clerkenwell lies within what is undoubtedly one of the more desirable residential and commercial areas of London. Nearby areas like Angel and Shoreditch are popular London nightlife hotspots, while Clerkenwell itself boasts some of the most charming pubs and the finest restaurants anywhere in the city.
