Sentient’s London office is located in the city’s revitalized East End neighborhood of Shoreditch, nestled amongst tech giants like Google & Amazon and alongside an array of internet, media and creative startups. There is an undeniably youthful and energetic vibe to the area, replete with trendy restaurants, clubs, markets, and independent shops.
Two decades ago, the area was decidedly grittier, edgier and rougher – today it is the unrivaled creative hub of the East End. In fact, Old Street’s Silicon Roundabout is the third largest technology start-up cluster after San Francisco and New York City. Unlike Central London, Shoreditch’s art isn’t found in museums and galleries but in its streets and on its buildings. This is, after all, where the “hipster” took root, where Ping Pong was invented, and where the world’s first pop-up mall is changing the definition of shopping. And yet, even the most discerning foodies can indulge any craving, with award-winning and world-class options ranging from poutine to panang, from fairy-lit rooftops to secret speakeasies. With so many wonderful things to see, do, and eat here, it’s a wonder that we get anything done!
Directions to London Office
Our London office is in the beautiful WeWork space at Shoreditch Mark Square. We recommend taking the Tube (the London Underground public transportation system) as the London office is only a 2-minute walk north of Old Street Station (Northern Line). If you’re visiting the office by car, take route A1202 to Leonard Street and then turn left onto Ravey Street.
There is a 24-hour “JustPark” car park 2 blocks west of Old Street Station and valet parking one block further north of the office.
