Farringdon Restaurants: Cool and Cutting Edge. London’s new foodie hotspot has developed itself in the historic area of Farringdon. This section of London, located between the area of Clerkenwell and the city centre, has recently become one of the city’s hippest neighbourhoods. In the middle ages, the area was split into two sections, Farrington Within and Farrington Without, referring to whether the section was located within the defensive London Wall or not. Today, these sections are now part of the city’s 25 official wards. Despite its being a very historic area, this part of London has become a hub of activity for London’s younger crowd, with its large number of gastropubs as well as clubs and music venues.
