Clerkenwell Living Clerkenwell is a unique place to live in London, while it lacks the bustle of more central London areas, it offers something of it’s own individual charm to anyone wishing to live somewhere close to most central areas, but tucked further away enough to be able to imagine that it is suburbia, while still being able to appreciate the finer aspects of London. Clerkenwell Green The area is known for it’s creative atmosphere, a wealth of media professionals and architects inhabit some of the many loft conversions that appeared after the buildings and factories that once were part of Clerkenwell’s history outlived their use. Clerkenwell therefore manages to sustain homes with spacious rooms.As a result of the creative industries and the individuals that support them, the area is closely associated with the contemporary arts. The annual Clerkenwell Design Week is held there, a place for artists and designers to showcase their latest creations. The atmosphere in Clerkenwell varies depending on where you are, it has a bohemian vibe, with a market on Leather Lane, as well as Exmouth Market, which is also filled with independent shops and businesses. On the one hand Clerkenwell is the area known for it’s artist industries hence it’s close links to Bohemia, but as it leads further east there is an influx of city workers and business types.

A perfect place to be if you might ever want shelter away from the central hub of London (but still be able to get here in twenty five minutes!).
