Buttesland Street originally went from Pitfield Street to East Road - half the street of Victorian houses were demolished to build "modern" flats. This included the Victorian houses on one side of Chart Street and also Haberdasher Street.
Any recommendation for a reliable cleaner in hoxton? Urgently need one.
I am a reliable and honest person that has been doing cleaning for quite a while now.
I have checkable UK references and my price is reasonable. So if you are looking for help with your flat or house, look no further, ring me on ********1 or email on

60 yards from Hoxton square there is a place where you can Draw, Draw and draw for about £5 a head for 3 hours. As long as I bring a few friends sometime and nothing else because we share the cost. Yesterday the model was a formidable Brazilian curvy and flexible model, the music was so relaxing, tony was so attentive and helpful, people so friendly, poses amazing and beer on the tap, I simply wonder if It wasn't a dream. Today I went to meetup.com/lifedrawingsociety and it wasn't they do it everywhere in London in absolutely perfect locations.
I had to let you know, let's bring our pencils and change the world to a better one.
All we've found is the Iceland and its pretty basic...
20 of august 2008? does anyone know how old these postings are? i feel like an ass responding to questions that are 4 years old. this chick above me has probably moved 4x since the posting.
I am running a Tao Yoga and meditation class on Tuesdays in the Geffrye Hall, Stanway Street, Hoxton from 10 - 11.30am. It is suitable for anyone, very gentle stretching to your own ability. We finish up with sitting meditation, either in a chair or on a cushion, to calm the mind. I want it to be accessible to everyone, and so I charge 5 and 3 concessions. Call Toni if you are interested on **** ****9 or email me.

I am making a TV pilot and am looking for anyone who is talented in the kitchen.
I am looking for any keen cooks who would be willing to cook for a food critic on television. The most outstanding cooks will win an award. We are looking for amateur cooks rather than professionals to take part.
If you are interested or may know anyone who may be interested (at this stage this is for a pilot show). Please email me on
Does anybody know why only half of Buttesland Street exists please ? Was it a doodlebug in the East End that destroyed it ?
I saw a film being recently ... filmed actually(!) and a guy in a flourescent waistcoat politely told me politely to piss off, so the whole square is 'bookble, just don't know how, sorry.'
I'm wondering if anyone can suggest yoga, pilates or a good gym in the Hoxton Square area. I just moved to the area and think £20 per class is a bit high and was hoping to find some suggestions.
I have been living on Hoxton Street and have had no problems with safety to date. I've seen a few things though - just keep yourself to yourself and things are fine.
its more than cool.dont worry.its a pretty nice area as well.everything can happen anywhere.you ll be safe dont worry
Hoxton Square itself (the grassy bit) is managed and maintained by Hackney Council, so I think their amenities dept or parks dept would be your first port of call. Bear in mind it is a public park so you might be restricted in what you can do. good luck anyway.
Does anyone have contact details for someone who I can talk to about hiring Hoxton Square for an event in June 2007? Please send any info to
I have recently moved to Hoxton and would like to continue my yoga training. Does anyone know of any classes nearby? Please contact me here
There used to be a film library containing old Foreign Office Movietone material e.g stuff from the Colonies etc in Ironmonger Row, quite close to the baths. Does anybody remember what it was called or what happened to the collection?
I'm very grateful for your advice. I visited Pitfield Street and walked through Hoxton Square and up and down Old Street many times, possibly too much, and in fact I have now exchanged on the basis of what you said and two people I phoned who are advertising flatshare rentals here on this site (this is a good source of honest information for anyone looking.)
I have to say that the more I visited, the more it became comfortable, so thank you.
The Hoxton Hotel is opening soon, which is the first in the UK to offer a pricing system similar to that of a budget airline. It's on Great Eastern Street as far as I remember.
I think you'll be fine around there, even late at night. Not sure where you're going to park the bmer, or whether it's going to be safe. There are plenty of similar cars parked about the pace, but I don't know if they get damaged. In general, the area you describe is fine - although you will see some of the scary youths roaming about.
I live on Fanshaw Street, which is just around the corner. It's always difficult telling people that anywhere in London is "safe", but I've never felt intimidated here, or seen anything that would worry me. It's very close to very busy Hoxton Sq & Old Street, so there's alway plenty of people about, which is a big factor in feeling safe.
I am going to do an MSc next year and want to be based somewhere affordable near my University (Old Street/Moorgate area). I've seen a cheapish ex-council flat for rent just a couple of metres off Hoxton Street, on the edge of the Arden Estate, opposite Shoreditch Library, a couple of hundred metres north of Hoxton Square, and I don't really know how rough that area is, (or isn't).
Can someone tell me how safe it is round there? Obviously it seemed fine by day, with the street market and lots of people around, but I wonder if it is safe at night, do you get gangs of dangerous teenagers from Hackney estates hanging around and mugging people? Is Hoxton street itself safe at night, i.e. is it safe to walk or cycle up it alone from Old Street in the dead of night? And would I be completely foolish to park my soft-top BMW on the unlit lane outside the property? I'm not pretending the car is anything special, but it is going to stand out a bit there.
I have an offer accepted on a house just off Pitfield Road about one minute walk west of Hoxton Square.
Quite a few people are advertising flatshares on this site in this area, and I'd be very grateful to hear any feedback about what people think about what the area feels like after dark, walking from Old Street tube ? Many thanks.
whats the nearest train station to hoxton? xxx
where is nile street and what is it this number 77
Can anyone recommend a good gym in the area which offers Ashtanga yoga, or any power yoga classes, as well as pilates and a pool? I live just off Hoxotn Square. Please email me!
more info needed before an answer can be found
It's between hoxton st and kingsland rd, I used to go there and it wasn't bad at all, I think it's won local commmunity gym awards. I don't think you have much hope getting a gym that's not municipal for less than £40 a month round here unless you can do off peak,
that gym is probably the best alternative, somewhere between the 2.
and there is at least one good female GP and the nurse is really nice there too for all the usual girly check ups!
I help to run the Shoreditch Sharks local kids rugby club, based at Shoreditch Park and am desperately looking for anywhere where we can hold a small low-key 'social meeting'. This would be for players and parents after a home game in early March, around 11:30am - 1pm on a Sunday. I am really struggling to find somewhere (anywhere!!) to hold this as The Britannia Leisure Centre is unable to help us.
Please, please, please does anyone know of somewhere local that may be able to help?
Please reply to this posting or to
my name is Mattia and in December i have to expose two of my paintings in an art gallery of London (for me is the first time in London). The gallery is located in Rivington St., in the zone of Hoxton. I wish to receive some informations and links about some Bed & Breakfasts, the nearest to the gallery if possible.
Hi, perhaps moving to this area soon. Would like to know what Hoxton is like? Is it a safe area, close to amenities i.e., locals superstore? How far away from old street and angel (walking distance?), what are the people like in the area and is there a good gym/ yoga?
im researching my family history. my dad was born in 1915 at 2 mount row which was off of east road. my grandfather charles stevens ran or owned a piano shop at that address but i cant find any info on it.

hopefully there may still be some relatives living in hoxton.
i'll keep my fingers crossed
There is only one in Nile Street. Number 77
You could try the Lawson Practice in Nuttall Street.
Try the Lion Boys Club or the Crown and Manor both in Hoxton they will be able to point you in the right direction.
There is a pool at Ironmonger Row (Leisure Center) this is probably the nearest there is. There are a few gyms one is in the Crypt of Saint Johns Church, Pitfield Street and there is another at Hoxton Square called the Academy.
I just moved into the area and have started going to Hoxton Surgery. Seemed to be the only NHS one taking in patients. Seem to be good so far. They are just by Shoreditch Park on a Road that goes between Mintern Road and New North Road - can't remember the actual road's name!
On Hyde Road, end of Pitfield St there is a Sports Centre with a swimming pool. It might just be a fun pool though, but phone number is 0207 ****85
there are vietnamese places on kingsland road- viet hoa, sing que, both good, a little limited for vegetarians.
yelo is a inexpensive thai on hoxton square.
does everyone in hoxton think its still or ever been cool to have a mullet?
