Whether travelling to Canary Wharf or the City hubs of Bank, Broadgate and 88 Wood Street to Westminster and Bond Street, The Founding keeps you utterly connected.
From the London School of Economics to University of the Arts London via King Cross’ Knowledge Quarter, this is a city founded on education, learning and research. The Founding offers quick journeys to leading institutions and universities across the city with easy, accessible transport.
Some of the city’s most vibrant pockets of entertainment are a simple bike ride or Tube journey from The Founding. Enjoy long, leisurely days or evenings out with friends exploring some of the best food, drink, shopping, markets and culture in the world.
Home to the iconic gallery White Cube, Bermondsey Street has become a byword for artisan food and drink with Flour & Grape’s handmade pasta, Casse-Croûte’s French crowd-pleasers and The Garrison’s popular bottomless brunches and Sunday lunches leading the way. Shop the colourful footwear of Kat Maconie and discover eclectic home finds in Trove167 and Bermondsey Antique Market (open every Friday).
Step into Borough Market and let your senses guide you through stalls of freshly made bread, oil-drizzled olives, herbs, spices and street food. Eat oysters at the buzzy Wright Brothers, anticipate a simple plate of cacio e pepe at Padella or head to Angela Hartnett’s latest opening Cafe Murano for carefully sourced Italian wines. Then walk round the corner to Stoney Street for Paul Smith’s quintessentially British tailoring, Neal’s Yard Remedies and Therapy Rooms and APC Surplus.
The trail from the Tate Modern to the Southbank is a haven for culture lovers with the The Globe, National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall and BFI rubbing shoulders (the newly launched La Gamba and Lasdun are recommended spots for pre-theatre dinners). In the summer, watch booked-out live shows on the big screen or simply stroll along the pedestrianised riverside walkway to see London at its best.
Redchurch Street is one of the most exciting areas of London with shopping from Reformation, Earl of East and Labour and Wait. Join the snaking queue for Jolene bakery, head to Murdock London for expert grooming, reserve a table at Brat (recently named one of the 50 best restaurants in the world, don’t miss the smoked potatoes) or enjoy cocktails on the original Shoreditch rooftop terrace of the Boundary.
