The Top 10 Shops in Shoreditch

Shoreditch shopping is a must when you visit London.

Known for hipster hangouts like The Hoxton Hotel or Ace Hotel as much as for the vintage shops on Brick Lane, Shoreditch combines the edgy East with the rest of London, giving us an endless amount of cool concept stores, urban coffee stops or hip restaurants for lunch. There have been a lot of changes, but the area preserves its character with graffiti, half demolished houses, a creative vibe and none of the attitude you might find in West London boutiques. Discover where to shop in this trendy area with our guide to the best shops in Shoreditch.

BOXPARK Shoreditch is a retail revolution – the world’s first pop-up mall. Based in the heart of East London.
