Located in the popular area of Hoxton, Will Wyatt Court has fantastic venues nearby including Queen of HoxtonHoxton SquareLondon's Cat Cafe and much more! 

Close to Old Street tube station which offers a 24-hour night tube service on weekends, getting around  London couldn't be easier!

Take a look at some of our favourite hotspots...

1) Queen of Hoxton

Queen of Hoxton is a top Shoreditch bar and club with East London’s finest live music and DJ’s. It has a lounge and chill spot option with a pinball table and foosball table, as well as a top rooftop bar with a garden, kitchen, and BBQ for those who love alfresco drinks with stunning views of London. 

2) Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium

Taking inspiration from Tokyo, Lady Dinah's was London's very first cat café, opening its doors back in 2014. Filled with cute cats, faux-vintage furnishings and plenty of chintzy crockery – this is certainly a Hoxton hotspot! With 13 cats sharing the space, this is a cat lovers paw paradise – offering light meals, sandwiches, salads and bagels, high teas, afternoon teas and a range of mouthwatering pots of tea like chantilly cream tea, or popcorn green tea.                 

3) Old Spitalfields Market 

Is vintage fashion your thing? Old Spitalfields market is a firm favorite with lots of stalls selling jewelry, retro home furnishings, designer and non-designer clothes and more. There are lots of food options and bars surrounding the market. Even if you don’t feel like buying anything, Spitalfields is just a unique and eclectic part of London to walk around and explore. Let’s not forget you're bound to get an Instagram worthy photo here too!

4) Hoxton Street Monster Supplies

This intriguing store is part of the Ministry of Stories – an initiative that sees professional writers mentor young people in the art of story writing. Hoxton Street Monster Supplies offers bespoke and everyday items for the living, dead and undead. It works to encourage wild creativity and hopes to transform lives through writing. The shop itself is a direct reflection of the beyond the outlandish tone of the workshops and ghoulish treats on offer from the 'thickest human snot' to Werewolf biscuits and cubed 'earwax'. This might just be the strangest shop in London, will you be brave enough to visit?

5) The Orange Buffalo

Word on the streets of Hoxton is that Orange Buffalo serves the BEST buffalo wings in London. Located in the Truman Brewery Car Park with its four levels of sauces to rival Nando's Peri-scale starting with the sensible Original to the scorching Viper, The Orange Buffalo is undoubtedly one to add to your list of eateries this summer!
