Along with Shoreditch, which it bleeds into (no one's quite sure where the boundary is), Hoxton has a long-established reputation as a home for creatives. Hoxton Square has an excellent cluster of bars and restaurants, while Hoxton Street market and its complement of defiantly un-hip greasy spoons retain some proper, olde worde East End charm.

De Beauvoir, up the road, is mostly residential and has an intriguing smattering of pubs and coffee spots. People who enjoy a bit of property porn are advised to check out De Beauvoir Square, where the houses are extremely handsome and bloody massive, while walkers can enjoy a stroll along the lovely Regent’s Canal towpath.
