Waitrose is located nearby, as well as West Smithfield an area that has seen a huge regeneration, seeing incoming small food outlets, coffee shops, bars and restaurants.

There are plans for this area to be part of the world beating Cultural Mile, and will be transformed into a world food and gastro destination. Built in 1971, the Barbican Estate is the finest achievement of the architects Chamberlin, Powell & Bon, who drew inspiration on Modern architecture. Their vision has created a unique urban village community devoid of traffic with immediate amenities including the Barbican Arts Centre, a church, school, library and shops. The estate was Grade II-listed in 2001 in recognition of its extraordinary contribution to London's urban landscape.
