The best places to live in East London: Shoreditch

It’s no accident that Dockleys chose to operate out of Brick Lane. In the heart of Shoreditch, we get to work in one of East London’s most characterful areas. With so many markets, bars and eateries, many housed in beautiful historic buildings, it’s easy to see why Shoreditch is considered one of the best places to live in London.

Average house prices in London, E1

At time of writing (2018 Q2), the average house price in E1, Shoreditch, is approximately £925,000, while the average price of a flat is approximately £587,000. Two-bedroom flats make up the majority of the housing stock – very popular with couples and young professionals looking to buy and rent property in East London.

Connecting with the rest of London

Shoreditch is a great place to live, wherever you work. Walking distance from the City and cycling distance from Docklands, you can enjoy an open-air commute! Shoreditch High Street station is on the East London Line, connecting you not only with the rest of the East End but also with South London.

The West End is easily accessible by bus or tube, with London Underground stations at Old Street, Moorgate and Liverpool Street. From Liverpool Street you can also get to Essex and Cambridgeshire, and take the Stansted Express to Stansted Airport.

Things to do in Shoreditch

What really puts Shoreditch on the map is its fantastic vibe. E1 is a postcode with a past – industry, docks and blow-ins have proved to be very character-building, creating a corner of London crackling with cool. Home to countless restaurants and bars, Shoreditch is also the address of the (in)famous Cereal Killer Café and one of London’s longest-established bagel bakeries.


The markets are outstanding too. There’s the Sunday morning flower market at Columbia Road (pistils at dawn!), while Old Spitalfields Market has all the clothes, gifts and second-hand records you could dream of. Meanwhile, the traditional East End markets remain undaunted by the influx of hip, with stalls on Petticoat Lane, Brick Lane and other thoroughfares piled high with scrubbing brushes, phone cases, baseball caps and other essentials. Best of all is the Boxpark – the world’s first pop up shopping mall.
