NEED TO KNOW | AREA INSIGHT

Culture: The area behind Liverpool Street station has one liveliest scenes in Europe and is wonderfully wedged between Hoxton and Shoreditch and Bethnal Green on one side and the Square Mile on the other. London is truly your oyster here – restaurants like L’Anima on Snowden Street, Pizza East on Shoreditch High Street and Galvin La Chapelle are among London’s best. education: Nothing stands out in the immediate vicinity, though there is a reasonable choice of primary schools nearby, such as in Moorgate and Old Street. Spitalfields is not the ideal spot for someone looking to school their children locally and for free.
