Boxpark is a quirky strip of tiny boutiques just outside Shoreditch High Street overground station. There is such a wide mix of items here, from sportswear to outrageous onesies and ’50s-style dresses to futuristic jewellery. While you’re there, fuel up for a day of shopping at East London Juice, a new family-run business that is lauded by health-conscious locals.
Shoreditch is the ultimate in East London hipster-cool. Buildings are covered with impressive graffiti art; streets are frequented by pretty young things shooting scenes for music videos and indie films; and the eating, drinking and boutique shopping is all about independent owners rather than chain brands. Catch the overground train to Shoreditch High Street or, for the tube, get off at either Liverpool Street (five-minute walk) or Old Street (15-minute walk).
