What a let down. Was expecting a much nicer place. You hear loads about this place about how good it is and you must visit. Well, save you time and go elsewhere. Run down, cheap and a real let down! Spotted few quirky wall art...More

Haven been here since 2014 and boy, the area has changed and for the best. Nice shops and great choices to have a nice meal. Pretty clean as well. I felt safe even at night.

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of

the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
