Where East and West London meet

Where East and West London meet

06.04.20

A district of the capital which has long gone unnoticed, Farringdon is home to an eclectic range of hotels, restaurants, cafés, bars, businesses and museums – all of which make it one of London’s most distinctive neighbourhoods. Farringdon offers residents and visitors an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, without compromising on its unrivalled connections to the rest of the city. Whether it’s exploring Exmouth Market’s range of independent eateries for a morning coffee or marvelling at the various artefacts held within the Sir John Soane’s Museum a short walk away, the area is a true treasure trove.

A thriving restaurant and bar scene is not only embedded in Farringdon itself but can be enjoyed in neighbouring areas including Covent Garden, King’s Cross, Clerkenwell, Holborn and Russell Square. Enjoy fine dining at The Royal Exchange in the City, cocktails at up-and-coming bars such as Oriole in Smithfield Market, or experience restaurants pushing culinary boundaries, like The Clove Club in Shoreditch.

Nearby Farringdon station benefits from three underground lines as well as national rail services, allowing those that work and live in the area get across the city and beyond with ease. Farringdon benefits from being at the very heart of London, providing a gateway between the west and the east. Crossrail’s arrival in the summer of 2021 will amplify Farringdon’s connectivity credentials as a major place for business and leisure.

A number of world-leading universities and educational institutions are within walking distance of Farringdon including City University, King’s College London, the London School of Economics and SOAS University of London, to name just a few.

At the heart of this pocket of the capital, the Royal Mail’s Mount Pleasant sorting office, which straddles King’s Cross Road, is a striking art deco building which has been in use by the Royal Mail since the 1930s when it was leveraged during the second world war.

Now, a landmark new development is transforming Mount Pleasant – Postmark. Designed to sit in harmony with the iconic sorting office, Postmark will establish a new central London neighbourhood with 681 new homes across 6.25 acres. Developer Taylor Wimpey Central London has now unveiled Signature Place, the latest opportunity to buy at Postmark, incorporating a collection of exceptional one, two and three-bedroom apartments and a suite of spectacular wellness facilities. Prices from £950,000; visit https://www.taylorwimpeycentrallondon.com/development/en/postmark for more information.
