In Shoreditch, empty walls are future murals. The neighborhood’s industrial warehouses and dingy side streets offer plenty of potential space waiting to be reimagined. Old brick warehouses have transformed into interactive art galleries, and countless buildings have served as Banksy’s canvases. Shoreditch’s appeal as a creative playground stems (at least, in part) from an urban, gritty underbelly, but clean-cut treasures aren’t in short supply—Shoreditch’s design sensibilities also influence its trendy pubs and cafes.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
