Sights and Attractions

The EC2 area boasts a number of modern and historic buildings of outstanding architectural interest. The London Guildhall, built in 1440, is a prime example of early architecture as is the recently-refurbished Museum of London, which houses more than 2 million exhibits. As one of London’s oldest and grandest stations, the architecture of the ever-bustling Liverpool St Station is highly impressive. The Barbican Estate Complex, which exemplifies British brutalist architecture and encompasses the Curve Gallery London, was built in the 1960s/1970s. Two towers – the NatWest Tower (called Tower 42) and the 2010-built Heron Tower are further examples of modern London architecture.

Squares and Gardens

Known almost exclusively for its corporate activities, relaxation in a park requires travel by car or public transport. Home to a spectacular wildlife meadow complete with traditional cottage and picturesque pond, the Fann Street Wildlife Garden in the Barbican Estate is well worth a visit.  

Squares in the area include Aldermanbury, Bridgewater, Mark, New Inn and Reliance. The architecture and design of each one is unique.

Well connected

Those living in EC2 are well connected to the rest of London thanks to the world-famous Liverpool Street Station. Located in a Zone 1 transport area, Liverpool St has a tube station and main line connections to Stansted Airport and several other UK destinations. Other underground stations in the area include Barbican, Moorgate, Monument and Old Street.  

Universities and Colleges

Higher educational establishments in the EC2 area include Cass Business School, European College of Business Management and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. The European College of Business Management is a modern high-ranking UK university that provides hands-on guidance to students. These colleges make for a lively student community and multicultural atmosphere with EC2 letting agents reporting a buoyant rental market, which is good news for those who already own or are thinking of buying property in the area.    


Primary schools catering for those living in EC2 include Charterhouse Square School, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Prior Weston Primary School & Children's Centre, the Lyceum and Queensbridge Primary School.

Secondary schools include the Central Foundation Boys’ School, the Complete Works Independent School, City of London School for Girls, Oaklands School, Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts and Wapping High School.    


Hospitals in and around the EC2 area include Mildmay Hopsital, London Bridge Hospital, St Anthony's Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.  There are also several private health clinics in the area. 


Given its commercial nature, the area primarily serves corporate employees but those living in EC2 are also well catered for. Vertigo 42 and Rhodes Twenty Four are famous for their signature dishes. Hawksmoor Guildhall is highly regarded and noted for its fine steak menu. The Fox Gastropub is another popular eatery while the Wagamama is recommended for those who like spicy foods. The Barbican Centre is the place to go if you are a music and/or art lover. 

The EC2 area stretches over a large swathe of London on the northern side of the River Thames, taking in Aldersgate, Bishopsgate, Cheapside, Hackney, Old Street, Poultry, Shoreditch and Threadneedle, as well as small sections of Finsbury Circus, Liverpool Street and Moorgate. The various districts are governed by the London Boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Tower Hamlets.

While the area’s architecture is mainly made up of of commercial buildings (banks and offices), those looking for residential properties – a new house, a period property or an EC2 apartment to rent or to buy – should find they are amply catered for. However, the commercial nature of the EC2 area, and with EC2 property prices being amongst the highest per square meter in London, living here is mostly restricted to those with above average earnings.

With a regular stream of enquiries about EC2 houses for sale and to rent, EC2 estate agents report a consistent increase in property prices over the past few years, a trend that is fully expected to continue.
