Old Street Useful Information
Old Street is, as its name might suggest, an old road, located in the eastern part of central London. Its history is uncertain, but it seems to date back to at least the thirteenth century, and as it was still called Old Street then (it was recorded as Ealdestrate around the turn of the twelfth century), it could be supposed that its history extends back much further even than this! There are suggestions that it might even originally date back as far as the Roman occupation of southern Britain.
Due to the large number of computing and information technology companies inhabiting the area, it has earned the nickname Silicon Roundabout, in imitation of Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area, Northern California. However, there are plenty of places other than the offices of web startups in the area which you can visit easily by an EC1 taxi. The area is rich with art galleries and museums, all of which are within a short walk (or Old Street taxi ride!) of the roundabout which sits atop Old Street tube station.
For instance, the Museum of London is within a fifteen-minute walk of the station (and much quicker via a taxi from Old Street!), and houses over a million artefacts telling the story of the city’s history, right through from prehistoric habitation along the banks of the Thames, through the Roman foundation of Londinium (from which the city takes its modern name) and the city’s place in mediaeval politics, right through to five floors of exhibits featuring modern London (that is to say, London since the Great Fire of London in 1666, which destroyed almost 14,000 homes and led to the redevlopment of large parts of the city).
If you’re feeling in a somewhat more morbid mood, a taxi in EC1 could also take you to Bunhill Fields, a dissenters’ cemetery which houses the earthly remains of such luminaries as Daniel Defoe, the famed novelist perhaps most well-known for authoring Robinson Crusoe, and the early Romantic artist William Blake, and also provides a small and relaxing wooded spot in this otherwise urban location in which wildlife including tawny owls, magpies and nuthatches can live in relative peace among the human tombs.
And for the evening? Well, Old Street is also very near to the well-known ultra-trendy nightlife spot Hoxton Square, where you will find a number of renowned clubs, bars, cafés and live music venues, not to mention the White Cube art gallery. In short, there’s plenty to do in the vicinity of Old Street!
