Old Truman Brewery

The Old Truman Brewery houses over 200 small creative businesses, as well as a bar. Covering 19 buildings, linked by a series of alleyways and courtyards, the main area – the Boiler House – is easily identified by its 49-meter chimneystack with ‘Truman’ written up the side.

It’s a prime location for artists, Dj’s & graphic artists. There are several world renowned exhibitions. Once London’s largest brewery, it now has become a thriving shopping and visitor spot.

Traveling to London before May 15th allows for off season pricing, or using fewer airline miles for travel. What could be better than a delicious espresso on a Spring London day?
