    Clerkenwell
    Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
    of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
    today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally

    some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
    focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
    time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
