A photowalk in Clerkenwell
I love Clerkenwell. I love that it has its origins in medieval London and that you can still see the vestiges of that near St John's Square, where the arch that used to be the entrance to the Priory of St John of Jerusalem (the Knights Hospitalers) still stands. I like its proximity to the meat market at Smithfield, which is still in operation as a wholesale market as it has been for centuries. I like its vibrant food scene, from brunch at The Modern Pantry to drinks at the Zetter Townhouse, or head down St John St towards Smithfield to visit St John Bread and Wine and Vinoteca. The newly re-opened Charterhouse, which has been closed to the public for hundreds of years, is also well worth a visit.
