Situated between Farringdon, Clerkenwell and the Hatton Garden jewellery quarter, Klarents Media is located in the heart of one of the most vibrant parts of London.
The area is known for its creative and media firms, historic landmarks and for some of the best cafés, bars and restaurants in London.
The area has also appeared regularly in film and literature. Author Charles Dickens used it to set the scenes in many of his novels – ‘Oliver Twist’ (the magistrates court was in Hatton Garden), ‘David Copperfield’ (Gray’s Inn), ‘Little Dorrit’ (Bleeding Heart Yard) and Fagin’s Den on Saffron Hill. St. Bartholomew the Great church in Smithfield featured in films such as ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ and ‘Shakespeare in Love’.
Shops and banks are located around Holborn Circus and the street market, Leather Lane, operates daily at lunchtimes. Nearby Exmouth Market also has a mixture of boutiques and shops, as well as bars, cafés and restaurants. Specialist shops in the area include the London Silver Vaults – an unusual underground shopping ‘mall’ containing the world’s largest retail collection of antique silver.
