At the end of the nineties, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts put Notting Hill on the map as the most romantic place in London.

Now times have changed. It seems London’s singletons are pretty hipster – those looking for love are now living in Shoreditch.

North London is a goldmine when it comes to looking for singles in your area. Shoreditch and Islington have topped a list of the 10 most popular areas for single Londoners to move to, according to new research.

Bad news for those living out in the East End, then. Canary Wharf may be the best place to look for singles on dating apps, but the Docklands didn't make the cut when it comes to flathunting.

Aidan Rushby, chief exec of Movebubble said: “It’s easy to see why single Londoners are heading to Shoreditch, Islington and Clapham, as they have so much to offer in terms of lifestyle.

"It’s the buzzing nightlife scenes and trendy eateries that are really attractive."

Yep: so as long as you can afford the average monthly rent of £2,473 in Tech City, you too could find love…
