About Hoxton & Haggerston
Once one of London's biggest slums, Hoxton & Haggerston is now an extremely sought after residential area with a burgeoning commercial property scene. It benefits enormously from the spillover of Shoreditch, one of London's trendiest areas, but is more easy going and doesn't carry its price tag.
On the surface, it may not have the best transport links, with the overground being the only line available from its three stations, but The City can be reached in 10 minutes by bus, Shoreditch and Old Street are a short walk away and King's Cross is a 20 minute ride away. So, if you're willing to sacrifice a few minute of travel time then Hoxton & Haggerston may offer you some fantastic alternatives to its more expensive neighbours.
It's still early days in Hoxton & Haggerston's commercial property offering but we're seeing startups and creative companies taking up space in the area and serviced office provider such as WeWork, Storey and Workspace, amongst others, have opened up recently.
