The first time I heard of this station was also the first time I heard of the neighborhood of Hoxton.
I was hosting a dinner event about a 5 minutes walk from this modern looking Overground station and it was very easy to get to from North London.
One would totally miss this station walking on the main road as you have to make 2 turns off of it just to see the station and there aren't any signs pointing you to it.
It's conveniently listed as a Zone 1/2 station so you can cheaply get to it if you are coming from the North.
If you're going to some places in between Old Street Station and Shoreditch High Street Station then check to see if this station is actually the closest to where you are heading cause it might be.
Never really very busy and there's always an attendant in the booth ( who's actually typically very useful ).
Tucked away behind The Geffrye Museum off Cremer street this gem of a station has been newly built into the arches. All original brickwork, concrete block and steel a great mix giving an cool urban feel to this station. Cycle hire bike stand right outside perfect for hitting Shoreditch or Brick Lane. Still bright and shiny and relatively quiet a joy to use. The views from the platform down to the city are simply stunning.
