The beating heart of London
Firmly established as one of London’s prime neighbourhoods, Hoxton is sought out by those who like being in the beating heart of the Capital.
Underwood Row is a quiet street located just off City Road between Islington and Clerkenwell, a short distance from both Angel and Old Street underground stations (Northern Line). It is conveniently placed for access to the City.
Over 500 years its history has been extraordinary. In Tudor times it was a weekend getaway for the rich city burgers, and was later home to Gunpowder Plotters. Later still, in Victorian times it was a residential district favoured by the middle classes.In 2000 Hoxton’s under-the-radar arty period ended when the high-profile White Cube gallery opened on Hoxton Square. Suddenly this overlooked backwater of east London, just three miles from the centre of the capital, became famous as the centre of contemporary art in London.
Connected to everywhere
Living in Hoxton you feel so close to everything London has to offer because of the great transport links on the doorstep. But if you are spending a weekend locally we would take a walk long the canal to Isington and grab breakfast on Camden Passage followed by a walk to Broadway Market. We’d meet friends on Exmouth Market. Sunday would be hot yoga at Fierce Grace balanced with a roast dinner on Columbia Road followed by sitting on the sofa looking out across London at home.
