One of London’s most historic streets, having been built on the route of an old Roman road, Old Street is today home to some of the most innovative start-ups in the world.

Located in the epicentre of East London’s Tech City, Old Street is one of the premier destinations for innovative start-ups and disruptive technology companies looking to shake up the way in which we live our everyday lives. Indeed, Old Street Roundabout which is one of the key destinations within this London office submarket is often colloquially known as Silicon Roundabout – a homage to San Francisco’s Silicon Valley which is home to some of the world’s biggest technology giants. This shows how important this area is within London’s burgeoning technology sector with companies including Last.fm, Tweet Deck, Gojimo, and Sports Interactive based in the area.

Old Street Underground Station opened up in 1901 and the area surrounding the station was comprehensively redeveloped in the late 1960s to include the sub-surface structure which is still present today. In addition, the Old Street area has played a vital role in the UK’s popular culture. Shoreditch is one of London’s most creative, quirky, and innovative parts of London, virtually synonymous with the creative and technology industries which make the area their home.
