Clerkenwell • time to momo


" Clerkenwell is a trendy neighborhood with few tourists. It’s a great place to go if you enjoy mingling with locals and hipsters. "

Kim Snijders, our local from time to momo London

Clerkenwell is a historical neighborhood, full of factories and warehouses that in recent years have become home to media companies and creative agencies. This trendy, creative neighborhood in the city center is known especially for its culinary hotspots. There are many good restaurants and gastropubs to be found, especially around Farringdon and Exmouth Market, where you can rub shoulders with local loft dwellers and media people. At Smithfield Market, meat has been bought and sold for the past 800 years. If you want to see the market in full swing, you’d better get there early, preferably before 7am.
