Shoreditch is in Hackney, an inner borough of London located within part of the traditionally working-class area of the East End. This area has recently become more modern and stylish thanks to its numerous art galleries, restaurants and bars, and its popularity as a filming location for both films and TV shows. The first playhouse in England was built in Shoreditch and known as The Theatre, though it was later dismantled, and some of the timbers used to construct the Globe Theatre. Some of Shakespeare’s plays premiered at The Theatre. The city has always been home to numerous theatres and music halls, and at the turn of the 20th century, Shoreditch’s entertainment was said to be on par with that of the West-End. Amazing places to eat out in Shoreditch include Que Viet, one of the area’s most established Vietnamese restaurants which is full of character and dedicated to providing Shoreditch with a taste of traditional Vietnamese cuisine. If you’re looking for a more diverse range of food, Urban Food Fest is an evening market which runs every Saturday from April to October and hosts many local eateries, food vendors and musicians.
