SHOREDITCH IN LONDON
The RE London Shoreditch Hotel is located north-east of London Liverpool Street station. This fashionable and up-and-coming area of London home of the 2012 Olympic Games. The site of the Olympic Village site is just 1.5 miles (2.5 km) east of the hotel. Canary Wharf and London's financial districts are both located within easy reach, as is The Excel Exhibition Centre and London City Airport.
Many of London’s main areas of interest lie to the east of the city and Hotels in Shoreditch are the focal point in the revival of this once neglected part of the city. Shoreditch and the surrounding areas have literally something for everyone, trendy bars, restaurants and some of the world’s best known dance clubs are also within a few kilometres. As you’d expect from a multicultural metropolis almost every taste in food is catered for and if Asian food tickles the palate the world famous Brick Lane is only a short stroll away.
You shouldn't confine to the West End only, there is so much more to experience and see than this and The RE London Shoreditch Hotel is ideally located to help you spread your wings. The beauty of Shoreditch, aside from being steeped in history is its accessibility to other parts of London and further afield. Liverpool Street station is very close by and provides rail connections to nationwide destinations as well as a direct rail link to Stansted airport.
No piece of writing about Shoreditch would be complete without some information on the world famous bars. The area was previously a working class district with many traditional cottage industries which due to ever increasing modernity have slowly ceased operation; these old fashioned businesses have been replaced with some of the most hip bars in the capital if not all of Europe. People visit the bars and clubs from miles around and it has become a central meeting hub for many young professionals involved in the media and arts.
You can experience the real London without being surrounded by multitudes of snap-happy tourists. Be warned though, this is a highly fashionable area so please dress to impress! We're sure you'll find our hotel more than suitable for your stay in London whatever your reasons are.
