Farringdon: a thriving cultural scene
Nestled between Clerkenwell and the City, Farringdon is one of London's best-kept secrets. With an established party scene, Farringdon's a great choice for nightlife, boasting popular venues like legendary drum and bass favourite Fabric. But the real gem is the food and drinks scene. Try cafe-slash-dining-room Modern Pantry, which offers exciting New Zealand fusion food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or head to the Jerusalem Tavern, an 18th-century-themed pub popular with locals.
Browse traditional shops and market stalls
What Farringdon lacks in high street fashion chains, it makes up for with great value, traditional markets and good old-fashioned independent shops. Head to Leather Lane to find a cornucopia of local goods and services on offer. If you're feeling fancy, you can hit Hatton Garden, the site of the infamous jewellery heist, for a bit of window-shopping. You never know - it might be the nudge your partner needs to finally tie the knot...
Explore hidden London on the Blood and Tears Walk
