Shoreditch

A Street Art Work from ShoreditchShoreditch is a district in London's East End, within the borough of Hackney. From scruffy beginnings, it has evolved into the city's most stylish shopping destination. A dizzying kalediscope of vibrant colour and culture, it is famous for not only its art galleries and its street art, but its vintage clothing and designer boutiques, as well as its artisan coffee and quirky gift shops.

Like everything else in Shoreditch, the retail experience is treated as an art. Impossible to appreciate without setting aside an entire day, shops and markets in Shoreditch compete not only in terms of the quality and originality of their products, but in seducing a shopper's five senses, often with exquisite décor and in-house cafés.

Shoreditch is one of the few shopping destinations where men are truly appreciated as stylish shoppers. Stores offer timelessly classic menswear brands as well as avant-garde new designers, and the stylish modern man can find everything he could possibly need, from leather bags to comic books to cutting-edge technology. This makes the Shoreditch area a vast Aladdin's cave of gifts for men, although the sheer variety and choice can be bewildering!

Thanks to Shoreditch's magnetic attraction for young, up-and-coming artists, it's the perfect place to find artisan bracelets for women and one-of-a-kind objets d'art for the home, as well as original paintings (including examples of some of the finest graffiti or street art in the world, although one can't really take those home!). The artistic vibe is reflected in many of the area's cafés, bars and restaurants as well, and the annual Shoreditch Festival showcases some of the hottest local artistic and musical talent. Famous residents once included Shakespeare, and world-renowned artist Damen Hirst played a key role in the redefinition of the area's art scene a couple of decades ago.

If you're looking for cool/ quirky rather than classy/ artistic, Shoreditch is again the place for you to shop. The area includes numerous shops offering cherry-picked unique gift ideas for the home, wardrobe and office, many of them the work of cutting-edge contemporary designers and impossible to find elsewhere. If antiques or retro is your thing, then Shoreditch is again the perfect place for you to plan a day-long bargain hunt. However, there is much more of an emphasis on quality than you will find in most London street markets, so perhaps the one thing you would be advised to seek elsewhere might be cheap junk...

Whether you're after gifts for him, gifts for her, or a special treat for yourself, it's highly unlikely that you will end a day in Shoreditch either disappointed or empty-handed. Warning: once you have shopped in Shoreditch, you probably won't be able to shop anywhere else...
