As East London’s most popular venue, Shoreditch is a bustling hub of innovative activity.
Historically, the area has been the location of choice for the creative industries – the ‘Shoreditch Triangle’ has long been the home of the capital’s brilliantly poor artists and designers. In recent years, however, the growth of Tech City has seen an influx of digital and technology companies flooding into EC2. We now have a globally recognised cluster where some of the world’s foremost companies are changing the digital world.
At Shoreditch Office Space, we work closely with a wide range of Tech City occupiers. Our team of local experts help clients to identifying, negotiate and secure work space in East London. To help you learn a little more about where you want to be, we’ve produced a whistle-stop street guide to Shoreditch.
Take a look…
In many ways the spiritual centre of Shoreditch, Rivington Street has long been the home to the artistic scene in East London. Its winding cobbles house a variety of independent coffee houses, restaurants, bars and cafes, all squeezed together in characterful period properties masked in graffiti that offers consistently changing social commentary.
Residents are an eclectic bunch – co-working providers, traditional office space, nightclubs and book shops. By day, the road is home to polite and inquisitive touristy types, exploring East London’s attractive side streets. By night, the road is a sea of trendy ‘Shoreditch types’ – artists, designers, innovators and visionaries. Hugely popular with a range of occupiers, Rivington Street continues to be the location of choice for Shoreditch’s international community of occupiers.

Great Eastern Street
The main transit route from Old Street Roundabout to Shoreditch High Street, Great Eastern Street runs through the heart of Tech City. Its large warehouse conversions provide an abundance of work space to a diverse range of occupiers. Large windows and high ceilings are complimented by exposed brickwork and restored features. Some occupiers embrace the history and make focal points of the industrial heritage.
As well as our own delightful office, a number of occupiers have chosen Great Eastern Street for its attractive buildings and unbeatable location. As well as being in the heart of the innovative tech cluster, transport links are never more than a short walk from the office. There is also the advantage of having The City on your doorstep, especially for those with links to the financial sector.

Situated between Great Eastern Street and City Road, Scrutton Street is home to some of Tech City’s most well-known residents. Alongside the iconic Tea Building, Zetland House is one of Shoreditch’s most recognisable work space providers. Once the print works for the Bank of England, Zetland House now provides characterful and spacious offices (including an underground former safe, equipped with original features) to a wide variety of occupiers.
There a number warehouse conversions alongside Scrutton Street, with many taking a modern twist on renovations while maintain external structures. Offices are popular along this road, and consequently harder to come by than elsewhere in Shoreditch. The Tech City project has made the thoroughfare increasingly desirable, linking the creativity of Shoreditch with the internationally celebrated Silicon Roundabout.

Home to the mythical Google Campus, Bonhill Street is one of Tech City’s epicentres. Positioned between Shoreditch High Street and Old Street, the side road houses some of East London’s elite occupiers. Seedcamp, Tech Hub and Central Working all call Bonhill Street home, making it the location of choice for EC2’s most innovative and exciting start-ups.
Properties on Bonhill Street are primarily industrial conversions, although Campus (designed by our friends Jump Studios) shows how a good interior architect can reimagine the spaces. Prime positioning makes available property on the road a desirable rarity, as well as slightly more expensive that surrounding streets. If you’re a start-up or SME, the best way to secure a desk on this street is in one of the resident co-working spaces.

Stretching from Old Street to the boundaries of the City, Tabernacle Street is one of the longest in Tech City. Beginning at the tip of Great Eastern Street in a flurry of street art and independent coffee houses, the road runs through EC2, culminating at the popular Finsbury Square Garden. An eclectic mixture of properties and occupiers, Tabernacle Street offers something for everyone.
Victorian factory conversions, churches, warehouses and contemporary builds – there are buildings to suit every requirement. Tabernacle Street is a popular location for companies with community staff, being close to Old Street and Shoreditch High Street stations.

Linking City Road to Great Eastern Street, Leonard Street is at the northern end of the two, close to Old Street Roundabout. Dominated by a large number of warehouse conversions, the street provides a mixture of work spaces and trendy East London hangouts. At one end, the hugely popular Book Club stands as one of Shoreditch’s most popular bars. At the other, OZone provides Tech City with an invaluable shot of quality caffeine.
Availability on Leonard Street varies, and on occasion you can find a freehold or two changing hands. The diverse range of work space also means a certain amount of movement in the office market, as companies grow out of spaces and relocate. Shoreditch Office Space have done a number of deals for happy clients on this street in recent months.
