Shoreditch Area Guide

Property for sale or rent in Shoreditch E1, E2, N1, EC1, EC2

Don’t be put off by the fact that Shoreditch falls within five separate London postcodes – Shoreditch is actually a very distinctive area, and a highly desirable place to live, whichever part you may hang your hat in. It’s now one of the trendiest areas in London, and has a particularly rich history.

For four centuries, it was home to an Augustinian priory called ‘Halliwell’ (as in holy well).  On the site of the priory, James Burbage built the first playhouse in England, known simply as ‘The Theatre’. This was followed soon after by the Curtain Theatre. Shakespeare’s plays were performed at both these theatres, before he and his company moved to the Globe Theatre just over the Thames.

During the 17th century, wealthy traders and Huguenot silk weavers moved to Shoreditch and developed a thriving textile industry. Many of their houses still stand today. In the 19th century, a furniture industry developed in the area, which is commemorated in the Geffrye Museum on Kingsland Road.

From then until the last war, Shoreditch became renowned for its music halls, many of which were later transformed into cinemas. But as a place to live, Shoreditch had become less desirable, and it was heavily bombed in the war, and parts were badly redeveloped immediately afterwards.

Today, though, Shoreditch has transformed, and is full of many attractive clubs, bars, restaurants and shops, not to mention both new and period properties. It’s also home to many creative and media companies. Trendiest of the trendy has to be Hoxton, centre and inspiration for much of the new wave of British art.


Properties in Shoreditch

Unsurprisingly, property prices have risen dramatically in recent years, whether you’re renting or buying. The good news is that there’s plenty of availability, and there are still bargains if you know where to look.

Properties range from ex-council high rise flats through to Georgian houses and large loft conversions in old factories, with plenty in-between.  Anything from an old police station to a public baths has been converted into flats, and the area doesn’t lack for character. The more affordable property in Shoreditch is towards the Northern and Eastern ends, away from Old Street.
