On Friday 25th January 2019 a new Hatton Garden sign was installed at the junction of Greville Street and Farringdon Road, adjacent to what will become the Elizabeth Line exit from Farringdon Station.
The sign was commissioned by the Hatton Garden BID
and created by design and wayfinding consultants, Maynard Design
. Inspired by the rich history, culture and personality of Hatton Garden, it features engravings of historical highlights from the past 800 years — from the grisly tale of Lady Elizabeth Hatton’s death in 1626 to the origins of Leather Lane Market, now a hotspot for London foodies. The materials used were also chosen specifically to reflect the local architecture and environment.
With the Elizabeth Line due to open in 2019 and the Museum of London’s plans to relocate to West Smithfield, our corner of London will welcome more visitors than ever before in the coming months. We hope the new Hatton Garden heritage sign will encourage them to stay a while, explore the area and enjoy all it has to offer.
