Apartment in Hoxton Shoreditch area of London

Jump to last reply

We are going to be in London for 10 days in late summer of 2014 - we will be first timers to the city. We are looking at potential apartments to rent, and realized we have no idea where various neighborhoods are! I've been looking online at various sites, and have ordered a guidebook to London and map of the tube (neither has arrived).

Even though it's still early, we are checking on availability of rental properties. We've found one that looks very nice, has good user reviews, is within our price range, and is located in Hoxton/Shoreditch on Regent's Canal.

My question is - how hard would it be to get into and around the city from this area? We will be using public transportation, and hope to spend our days seeing as much as possible - museums, cultural sights, monuments, historic sites, etc.

As an example of something we are comfortable with - we spent a couple weeks in a Montmartre apartment in Paris a few years ago and were fine with taking the metro into the center of the city and exploring all areas. Would this be comparable, or is it not as convenient?

Any suggestions of safe and accessible areas for us to look at staying in London are appreciated! Or websites that will help us figure out the many neighborhoods. Thank you!
