A guide to… Clerkenwell

15 November 2021 / Area Guides, Buying, Renting

Clerkenwell now has one of the highest concentrations of creative-sector businesses anywhere in the world, and it’s no coincidence that this growth has been accompanied by a wave of fashionable new clubs, bars and eateries, including several Michelin-starred restaurants.

In the 17th Century, South Clerkenwell was a fashionable place of residence, popular with the wealthy elite, including Oliver Cromwell who had a house on Clerkenwell Green.

During the Industrial Revolution the area became famous for its breweries, distilleries, printers and clock makers. The warehouses and workshops of Clerkenwell’s industrial past still exist today, but they are now home to architectural practices, design showrooms, film companies and new media agencies. Clerkenwell is also featured in many famous literary works including Shakespeare’s sonnets and works by William Thackeray and Charles Dickens.

There is a fantastic selection of schools in Clerkenwell.

Primary Schools in Clerkenwell include: The Charterhouse Square School, St Peter and St Paul RC Primary School and Dallington School.

Secondary Schools in Clerkenwell include: Richard Cloudesley PH School and the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.

Universities in Clerkenwell include: City & Islington College and City University London.

Clerkenwell is easily accessible by rail as well as road. Easy access to Santander Cycles, the Overground, Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith and City lines as well as National Rail Services mean residents of Clapton have multiple public transport options available to them.
