Boxpark & Redchurch Street

The most hip shopping district and one of our favorites, this shopping hot spot is a must visit! It has small neighborhood city flavor, and the best part is the mix of mostly independent boutiques but a good handful of some favorite national chains. BOXPARK is a pop up "mall" or collection of stores which are in shipping crates! Hence the name "boxpark"! From men's and women's fashion and accessories to great eateries there are lots of treasures to be found in BOXPARK! Continue shopping just a block over on Redchurch street which keeps the 'independent boutique with a few chains' theme. 

Location: BOXPARK is on Bethnal Green Rd. and Redchurch is a block north from Shorditch High Street to Bethnal Green Rd.
