Located on the eastern fringes of the City of London, Moorgate and Liverpool Street sit side by side to each other. Whilst Moorgate consists mostly of offices and businesses and is relatively quiet at the weekend, Liverpool Street not only serves as a centre of city business but is also a hotspot for Londoners and savvy tourists. Old Spitalfields Market is found just across the street from Liverpool Street Station and comes alive at the weekend with its fantastic vintage clothes and crafts market. Whilst most of the better restaurant chains have pitched up home inside the market, the surrounding area offers some superb dining choices. Head to Brick Lane to the east and you’ll find just about every kind of cuisine on the globe whilst Bishopsgate’s tall towers boast some of the finest restaurants in London.
