Neighbourhood guide: Clerkenwell
Does Clerkenwell ring a bell? You may have seen it mentioned in one of Shakespeare’s plays: Henry IV. Its name comes from a variant of clerc which means clergyman.
Things to do :
Clerkenwell used to be known as London’s “Litlle Italy” in the 1850s as over 2,000 Italian had settled there. Although the entire community did not stay there, the area is still highly influenced by its history.
Indeed, when it comes to eating out, you will surely be seduced by the variety of Italian restaurants that can be found there. Scared of getting bored with Italian food? There are many other restaurants, offering from Spanish to Vietnamese or Chinese cuisine.
If you're feeling for a healthier option, you can also find what you're looking for at Exmouth or Smithfield Market. There you will find vegetables, fruits, and groceries.
