Catching the Underground to Shoreditch

Shoreditch London

London’s Underground network makes it an absolute breeze to navigate your way around the English capital.

Driving can be notoriously difficult around London with the introduction of the Congestion Charge making it a nightmare for people who are only visiting for a couple of days. The buses are well connected but they can be a bit of handful to negotiate if you are not familiar with the various routes across London.

That makes the Underground the go-to mode of transport for making your way around the city. The Tube itself could be construed as being one of the sights you need to experience during your time in London. It has a sense of charm about it despite simply being a mode of transport that snakes its way under the surface of one of the busiest cities in the world.

Shoreditch is well connected by the Tube with numerous stops populating this fashionable and quirky corner of the capital. London’s answer to Silicon Valley, Tech City, is a great place to base yourself when visiting and there is no better hotel to stay in than the M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City.

Situated in the heart of this up-and-coming part of east London, the hotel is not only fantastic for a luxurious and relaxing stay in the capital but it provides the perfect location for exploring the area.

For those of you travelling by Tube, here is a quick guide to finding the hotel.
