The Future Laboratory’s home at Elder Street has its own story to tell. The Grade II-listed property is built on the site of a Roman cemetery and in the precincts of the medieval Priory and Hospital of St Mary Spital.

Located between London’s creative capital of Shoreditch and the financial heart of the city, it’s a short walk from Shoreditch High Street and Liverpool Street stations.
