restaurants

A long standing favourite,  Wright Brothers Spitalfields offers some of the best seafood in London. Be sure to try a selection of their extensive oyster menu.

Right next door is Androuet cheese and wine bar so there's really no reason not to go to both!

You cant go wrong with a Thai for lunch or dinner and Som Saa delivers excellent cuisine and cocktails to match.

With one of the best views in London, Sushi Samba is a great choice for a special occasion. Book well in advance to secure your table.

For something a lot more casual how about Dinearama where everyone in your party can feast on something different.

Naturally, perusing Columbia Road Flower Market is our absoloute favourite thing to do in Shoreditch. During the Christmas season the shops are open on Wednesday evenings in addition to the full market on Sundays.

Shoreditch Street Art Tours is a great way to see the area and some truly inspiring art in unexpected locations.
