10 Amazing Places to Stay on Airbnb in Shoreditch

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 20 October 2017

Over the past few years, Shoreditch has witnessed a cultural explosion with an influx of independent, locally-owned boutiques, from craft coffee shops to design bookstores and restaurants serving organic, eco-conscious dishes. These 10 Airbnb listed apartments in and around London’s ultra-trendy Shoreditch offer visitors a chance to stay in the heart of London’s trendiest neighbourhood.

Whilst critics decry the ‘Shoreditchification’ of London, fearing the ominous deluge of hipster beards and skinny jeans through the rest of the English capital, the identity of Shoreditch, and neighbouring Hoxton and Spitalfields, is constantly being redefined. Located just east of London’s Square Mile, Shoreditch has, at various stages, served many purposes. This fascinating history remains evident; signs of Shoreditch’s past as the city’s entertainment district, site of light industry, and home to waves of religious refugees, working class labourers and young creatives are deeply embedded in the fabric of the neighbourhood even as it undergoes a monumental transformation into one of London’s most coveted postcodes.

Beautiful Sunny Barbican Flat

Imposing in its concrete might, the labyrinthine Barbican Complex is a staggering triumph of post-war British Brutalist design. Much-maligned at its inception, the Barbican has survived the critics to become one of London’s best beloved architectural landmarks. Its severe concrete façade creates a unified front behind which exists one of London’s most vibrant cultural hotspots, including the Barbican Arts Centre, the Museum of London and Guildhall School of Music and Drama — all within walking distance of trendy Shoreditch. This characteristic Barbican apartment offers an unparalleled opportunity to stay in the Barbican, a Grade II listed complex. The Barbican’s 1960s aesthetics are visible throughout the flat, with strong wooden framing accents and concrete floors balanced by abundant built-in cabinetry. The floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall is a true stunner and opens out to a small balcony that overlooks the complex.
