Inside Chapter Spitalfields
Published: 19 Jun 20
Coming to London to study in September and looking for accommodation in East London? Introducing Chapter Spitalfields…
Chapter Spitalfields is located in the quirky East End of the capital, 33 floors high and offers modern student living with breath-taking views of the city’s incredible skyline – wake up every morning looking out onto the Gherkin, the Shard and many more iconic landmarks.
Situated just minutes from Liverpool Street station, residents have easy access to all central universities and popular destinations across the capital.
Sound good so far? We know you might not be able to stop by for a tour at the moment, so don’t worry, we've brought the tour to you.
Outside of lockdown, the buzz of City workers during the week transforms in the evenings and weekends to a highly desirable and unique London destination with Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market, Columbia Road Flower Market and Shoreditch High Street right on your doorstep. Add in art galleries and some of London’s best boutiques and you have one of the world’s most vibrant and exciting places to live.
Here's some of the top places that will be worth checking out nearby:
👚– located in the heart of Spitalfields, you’ll find a premier indoor market open seven days a week. Discover pop-up stalls alongside boutique fashion, design and lifestyle stores, plus independent bars, coffee shops and restaurants.
🍣– located on the 38th and 39th floors at 110 Bishopsgate, this fusion restaurant features the highest outdoor dining terrace in Europe, offering 360 degree views of London. Find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian culture and cuisine at this world-famous restaurant.
🛍️– venture down the cobbled back streets and find London’s hub of eye-popping street art, pop-up markets, vintage boutiques, quirky designers and the largest Indian food district in the capital. The perfect excuse for a vintage shopping spree or a late-night curry.
⛳– the home of crazy (literally) golf, weird cocktails and all things junk. This underground junkyard features four 9-hole crazy golf courses created from scrapyard items with pop-up beverage stands around each course.
💃– a bar, a club and an art gallery all mixed into one and open every night of the year. As well as the quirky interiors, you’ll also find a stunning rooftop garden complete with a BBQ kitchen, bars, garden shed bathrooms and panoramic views over the City of London.
🎸– this world-famous independent music shop hosts a regular line up of live music and intimate gigs; some big names that have previously performed include Blur and Queens of the Stone Age. You’ll also find album signings and film screenings in the café area – one to keep an eye out for.
