Hoxton & Shoreditch



Hoxton Street garden


  The Geffrye Museum

The walk is circular from Liverpool Street Station (mainline & tube)
Travelcard zone 1
Hoxton had began as an area with large houses, fashionable squares and numerous almshouses but from the late 18th century was overwhelmed by industrial development and the large number of people, many of them poor, who came to live and work in the area. Much of the industry has now gone and the slum housing, some of it bombed in WWII, has been cleared.

Plenty of cafes and pubs on the route. Cafe and picnic facilities available at the Geffrye Museum.

This walk is 3 miles pavement walking. Remnants of both prosperous and hard times remain but the area is likely to see big changes. As you walk its streets you can see the City looming, old buildings taking on new uses and new developments. There is the opportunity to view a number of theatre sites. [Route & what to see]
