The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,

"Ask if it suitable for disabled people or not - as you may get a flooded bathroom and not want it."
