Welcome to Islington: Exmouth Market, London EC1
August 28, 2016

ThePeopleAlchemist Edit: Exmouth Market #abouttown #lifestyle


Exmouth Market is a classic story of urban gentrification: a one-time run-down area whose old warehouses and factories were colonised by publishing, design and architecture firms in the 1990s, now one of London’s most desirable streets, situated nearby the Sadler’s Wells theatre, with a trendy vibe, as demonstrated by the variety of stylish independent businesses in the highly pedestrianised street, including some of the city’s most appealing restaurants and places to drink, too many for me to mention.

Which restaurant or bar you try will depend greatly on your personal taste and inclination on the day; whatever it is, you will be spoilt for choice and you can always come back and try something else next time. My recommendations are below.


 Recommendations this week:


Food and drinks


Sweet Boulangerie & Patisseriebrings the flavours of France to London in its fabulous sweet and savoury creations, Love, love, love…

La Ferme, french restaurant and delicatessen which offers a wide selection of the finest products from France. Truly yummy rest.

Exmouth Arms, traditional pub (and cocktails).



Paco Peña Flamenco Dance Company— Patrias. Legendary flamenco guitarist Paco Peña brings new work to Sadler’s Wells, exploring through music and song the emotional, physical, and cultural impact of the Spanish Civil War on his country’s history. Last show tonight.



Botanique, a lovely artisan store and flower shop

Borough Wines offering handpicked a wide range of wines and a diverse selection of local and international craft beers and boutique spirits
