A guide to the food and shopping hub

Nowadays you’ll find Boxpark outposts dotted all over the country, from Wembley to Liverpool. But the original was Boxpark Shoreditch, a pop-up dining and shopping destination set in the heart of East London. Home to an array of stalls cooking up everything from pasta to burgers and churros, it’s a mecca for foodies, with a regular programme of events on offer, alongside a selection of retailers selling things like jewellery, crystals and clothing. Here’s the lowdown on the buzzy spot.

What Is Boxpark Shoreditch?

Boxpark Shoreditch opened in 2011, billed as ‘the world’s first pop-up mall’. Since then it has grown into one of London’s most beloved dining and shopping destinations, renowned for its buzzing atmosphere and wide range of food and drink options. Over the years, other Boxparks have popped up in Croydon, Wembley, Liverpool and Birmingham.
