National Rail and London Underground share central London's Old Street in Travelcard Zone 1. The station was opened in 1901 by the City & South London Railway as an extension from Moorgate to Angel, but the current line was only developed in the 1970s. The station underwent another facelift in 2013 when a shopping parade and a bike shop were added to the entrance in conjunction with the East London Tech City development.
Situated between the City and Hoxton's on-trend nightlife, Old Street is the perfect place to explore London's past and present. A one-minute walk takes you to a cluster of art galleries, including Rivington Place, Iniva and 20 Hoxton Square, filling the void of the Young British Art's White Cube, which closed its doors in 2012. Further afield, but still only a ten-minute stroll away, you'll find Broadgate Ice Rink, London's longest-running outdoor ice rink and Hackney City Farm.
