Clerkenwell has great accommodation (of course), delicious restaurants and fantastic bars but did you know there are some excellent places for shopping around The Rosebery? We’ve narrowed down our favourites for when we need a spot of retail therapy…
If you’re looking for gifts, check out ‘In with the Old’ on Exmouth Market where you can buy quirky stationery, books, jewellery and miscellanea that you’ll not find anywhere else. If you’d rather ‘say it with flowers’, ‘Wildabout’ on Clerkenwell Road has a huge selection of creative bouquets that are sure to please even the most discerning recipient.
You don’t have to go far to find culinary treats too; The Rosebery’s very own ‘Printworks Kitchen’ sells a variety of snacks, treats and drinks which you can enjoy in the beautiful café surroundings or your own suite. If you fancy a tipple, check out ‘Borough Wines’ in Exmouth Market which stocks a carefully curated selection of international beers, wines and spirits.
Need new threads? Womenswear designer Antoni and Alison’s flagship store is just opposite the Aparthotel. You can browse the racks of unique designs as well as enjoying a cup of tea and cake in their quirky café. For menswear aficionados, ‘The Content Store’ in Exmouth Market stocks everything from high street favourites such as Adidas and Converse to niche brands such as Our Legacy to Sandqvist.
For a more budget option, dodge the food stalls on Leather Lane and head to Kate Kanzier. Having been featured in prestigious publications such as Vogue, Londoners flock from all parts of the city to buy their practical work flats, disco-ready heels and wide selection of handbags.
