You couldn’t ask for a more central and hip neighbourhood. Canto Court is located in East London on Old Street in Zone 1. We are just a three-minute walk to the Old Street Tube Station. Our student accommodation is well connected to central and greater London via the London Underground. Old Street station, which operates on the Northern line is located under Old Street roundabout, the junction with City Road. It is also on the National Rail Northern City Line.
Hoxton Square and Shoreditch will be your stomping ground, known for their unique art galleries, independent eateries, shops, local London markets, and varied nightlife. Within the past few years, Old Street has become a favoured location for notable graffiti artists such as Banksy, who has featured several pieces on ‘Shoreditch Bridge’.
Hoxton Square is thought to be one of the oldest squares in Central London, and since the 1990s, it is the heart of the arts and media scene and a hub for listening to local entertainment. You can eat your way around the world with a multitude of local and ethnic restaurants nearby. Get some great cheap eats at Song Que for undoubtedly the best Vietnamese in the area, an Asian twist at Mein Tay for scallops with black bean sauce, or head over to Open Kitchen where students from the London City Hospitality Centre (part of Hackney Community College) practise their skills on paying punters!
Nearby Clerkenwell and the Barbican are known for their arts and music scene. Or if markets are of interest, choose from Old Spitalfields Market, an old Victorian market that’s been around for 350 years selling clothes, food and household items; Smithfield Market sells the most economical meat and poultry available; Brick Lane Market on Sundays is fab for bargain hunting, and the Columbia Road Flower Market is an oasis of flowers and foliage. Of course, you could stumble upon the Urban Food Fest, the London Coffee Festival, take an Alternative London tour, or get your elbows out at the Designer Sample Sale. You will have so much to do that you’ll be hard-pressed to find time to study!
