Welcome to The City Fringe. Neighbourhood Guides → City Fringe Image - Bishopsgate, London Welcome to
The City Fringe.
Cool vibes on the fringe of the City.

A stone's throw from one of the largest financial districts in the world.

This is really the areas of St Katherine’s Dock, Aldgate and Whitechapel, which are becoming more and more popular as companies flee the high prices of The City Area but still want a vibrant place to work with excellent transport links around London.

There is a strong cultural feel, especially to Aldgate and Whitechapel where there is a fantastic street-food scene and some well-established art galleries such as the Whitechapel Gallery. In terms of office buildings there have been some amazing additions in recent years such as the One Braham in Aldgate, The Whitechapel Building, and Devon House at St Katherine’s Dock.

Aldgate

Aldgate is a stone’s throw away from one of the largest financial districts in the world, the City and is extremely popular with insurance companies, financial institutions, professional services firms and many more. As well as being in a great location with good connections to Greater London, it is also significantly less expensive than The City Area and in Aldgate Tower, for example, you have all the traits of a modern City building at a ‘relatively’ modest cost. It is also directly opposite a tube station and moments’ walk from many fine food and beverage outlets making it a very pleasant working environment.

Neighbours

The biggest name in Aldgate Tower itself is Uber who moved from Kings cross in 2015, followed by Groupon who took some of the upper floors. Whilst over in Whitechapel you’ve got names such as Reddie and Grose, Wilmington Plc and Claremont Consulting.

Costs

For flexible space in the area you should be looking to pay from £450 – £700 per desk per month, whilst if looking for traditional space you will be paying around £55-£65 per ft².

Drink & dine properly.

Eat – The Culpeper

The Culpeper is a beautiful London pub with a bar on the ground floor, a restaurant on the 1st, bedrooms on the 2nd and finishing off with a gorgeous rooftop terrace on top. Not only could you sit here all day and get a ferocious suntan, it also has fantastic food in the slightly more formal dining area. The main thing to know, as Jay Rayner points out in his expert review, is that they grind up pork scratchings to use as seasoning on popcorn.

Drink – The Dickens Inn, St Katherine’s Dock

This is a unique pub/restaurant/bar housed in a multi floor ex-warehouse dating as far back as the 1700s is such a brilliant venue for any event. In the winter you can find a cosy corner by the fire and in the summer, you can go up to one of the many terraces or stand outside the front by the water’s edge. It is bursting with character and has a long and established history.

Unwind properly.

St Katharine Docks

This lovely corner of London is well worth a visit if only to talk a short stroll around the dock area where there is an abundance of cafes, bars, restaurants, some beautiful architecture and of course some very impressive yachts belonging to some of the wealthiest of London’s residents.

Just half an hour walking around here in the sunshine can mentally transport you away from your working day and make you feel like you are perusing the markets of the South of France, giving your mind and soul a well-earned rest before you get back to the grind in the afternoon.
