Warum Einheimische es empfehlen
Perhaps one of the city’s most elegant council estates (and the heart of Shoreditch’s gentrification), the Boundary was built on the site of a demolished slum in the 1890s. The 2015 period drama Suffragette, about working class activists, re-creates the area as it would have been in the 1910s, with horses, carts, and washing lines strung across the streets. The estate’s restored Arnold Circus bandstand was identified by historian Peter Ackroyd as a place of tranquillity and silence within the teeming city.

First public housing built in the world. Also the birth place of modern sociology in Britain.

Arnold Circus / Jesus Green: Beautiful historical buildings and park. This area was featured on the recent James bond film and Suffragette.

Cute little park in a roundabout. Good spot for a picnic in the sun.

The first London County Council social housing scheme, this charming group of Arts & Crafts buildings is clustered around a circus with bandstand. It replaced a notorious slum known as The Old Nichol Rookery. The “evil” reputation of the Old Nichol owed a lot to Arthur Morrison’s fictionalised…

“This museum of immigration explores the waves of newcomers that helped shape the modern, multicultural city. It is an extraordinary place – an early 18th-century house built for a Huguenot silk merchant. The space in the attic was the workshop for weavers and there's a rare surviving synagogue in the garden. So many different people have lived here since then – Irish, Jews, Bengalis and Somalis – and because it hasn't been restored the history of the area is written in the dusty walls.”
