GOING OUT ON HOXTON STREET
There's plenty for hungry shoppers to enjoy along Hoxton Street, from traditional pie and mash to freshly baked cakes and pastries.
Over the last few years the area has seen more businesses move into the area, including the award-winning Bacchus restaurant at 177. Occupying a former Victorian pub built in 1801, it's described as Britain's first "molecular gastropub" - and has already won a big following.
Besides culinary delights, Hoxton Street is full of buildings of architectural interest - take a look at our history page for details of what to see.
