Shoreditch Useful Information
Shoreditch, part of the same area as Hoxton, is now well-known as a hub of trendier-than-thou indie chic, filled with fashionable nightclubs, music venues and art galleries to visit when travelling by taxi in N1, but its early history is somewhat less glamorous; it most likely derives its name from “sewer ditch”, having originally grown up around a channel for effluent alongside the fens which gave their name to Finsbury.
Of course, being part of the same area as Hoxton, a Shoreditch taxi could take you to all of the same ultra-trendy haunts around Hoxton Square and beyond, including the notable White Cube art gallery, but there are plenty of other attractions within striking distance of an N1 taxi, and Shoreditch has plenty of historical cultural significance too.
In fact, the country’s very first theatre (simply called The Theatre) was constructed in Shoreditch by famed actor James Burbage in the late sixteenth century. The Theatre was later dismantled by its resident acting troupe (which included a certain young actor and playwright by the name of William Shakespeare) and reassembled in Southwark to form the first incarnation of the famous Globe theatre, later destroyed by fire, rebuilt, demolished by Puritan Christians, and finally rebuilt in modern times as the Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, which now runs natural-lit performances of The Bard’s works throughout the summer months, and is a great place to visit by taxi from Shoreditch if you fancy catching a classic Shakespearean play!
If you are looking for activities in the vicinity of Shoreditch, there are plenty of attractions other than art galleries which you can reach very easily by taxi, such as the Clockmakers’ Museum, which is the oldest museum dedicated to timekeeping in the world, or the Marx Memorial Library, which collects together a wide selection of works relating to Karl Marx. And if the sun’s out and you aren’t in the mood for visiting a museum, perhaps you might be in the mood for a walk through Shoreditch Park, where you can also find an adventure playground if you have children in tow?
And if you’re hungry after all your adventures in the Shoreditch area, you’re in luck, as Shoreditch borders on both Brick Lane, famous for its very many Bangladeshi and Indian curry houses and trendy food-serving bars, and Old Spitalfields Market, which is well known for selling food as well as fashion and clothing, rated as the best private market in the United Kingdom by the National Association of British Market Authorities, no less!
