Local Insight & Information

Clerkenwell has rapidly developed from a section of town rich in history, including that of poverty and sometime unlawfulness, to one of the trendiest and most individual places to work within the city. Once part of London’s industrial heartland, the factories and warehouses have since been converted into exclusive bars and restaurants as well as chic, loft style offices and apartments. This has led to the area being one of the largest media hubs in Europe as well as containing an impressively high concentration of architects’ and designers’ offices.

CLERKENWELL

As a very central place to work, being bordered by the Gray’s Inn Road, the Pentonville Road, the Goswell Road and the Clerkenwell Road, the area is self-contained with many unique restaurants, coffee houses, shops, bars and hotels as well as plentiful transport links. Distinctively to this neighbourhood, mainly bought in by the Australian and New Zealand residents in the area, are some fantastic places to enjoy a great coffee. The Workshop Coffee Co for example holds the award for the Best Independent Cafe from the 2012 Cafe Society Awards as well as being the home to some of the most delightful food, particularly breakfast. Clerkenwell is also the birthplace and still the best place to go for some brilliant gastro pub grub, wandering around these streets on a slow afternoon at work you will be overwhelmed with choice for the perfect spot to settle for lunch. The Well on St John St. is one on the top end of our recommendations list, serving up the best in British and European recipes as well exquisite seasonal cocktails. Or alternatively for a more fine dining option, Bistrot Bruno Loubet within The Zetter hotel is one of the best value and best quality dining choices in the area.

Key Transport Links

Bounded by many tube stations, providing links throughout the city, this is an ideal spot for staff that live in a range of locations or for businesses that need to be easily accessed by clients. Farringdon, Barbican, Old Street, Angel and Kings Cross are all within a reasonable walking distance in to Clerkenwell and there is easy access to the Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Thameslink, Northern, Great Northern, Piccadilly and Victoria lines as well as St. Pancras International being only one stop away from Farringdon station. However, if cycling to work and keeping fit are high on your agenda then Farringdon couldn’t be better equipped for this also. With a popular bike-hire system in place throughout the city, Clerkenwell is very well served by docking stations and provides an alternative as well as a quick and easy way to get around. It is also common with the modern offices of Clerkenwell to find bicycle storage and shower facilities on site too.

One of the most varied and interesting markets to visit whilst in Clerkenwell is Exmouth Market. Resembling a small village within itself the area is filled with independent design shops, fashion and lifestyle boutiques, health and beauty services, book stores and gift shops as well as a wide range of bars, cafes and restaurants.

Clerkenwell Background and History

Once you have had a dose of wandering around the markets and have filled up on some heart-warming traditional grub there are also plenty of attractive and historical gardens for you to relax in and admire after a hard day’s work. Myddelton Square is a very handsome garden which is under conservation to preserve its culture, beauty and history within the area. These grounds hold 75 houses all constructed in a Georgian style and date from 1822 to 1843.  St Mark’s Church creates the centre piece of the square and, as are the houses, is a Grade II listed building. Sadler’s Wells Theatre is located just two minutes away from Myddelton Square providing a further does of culture. Renowned for its spectacular dance productions in anything from ballet to hip-hop, Sadler’s Wells Theatre has hosted premiers for some of the biggest shows in the world of dance. Matthew Bourne’s magnificent Swan Lake was first performed here in 1995 and its continued success saw it as the West End’s longest running ballet. The theatre also showcases an innovate visual arts exhibition open for the public to admire.

Clerkenwell originally derived its name from The Clerk’s Well which once formed the centre piece for the parish clerks of London’s medieval miracle plays. This iconic location also set the scene in Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist where Fagan and the Artful Dodger introduce Oliver to the world of pick-pocketing. This is a true representation of Clerkenwell during Dickens’ time which had developed a reputation as a den for thieves and the mischievous. However, the area was always popular with market stalls and trade which eventually developed the space in to a thriving area for industry turning it around and leading it in to the popular media and design hub of today.
