Neighbourhoods
In Shoreditch, empty walls are future murals. The neighborhood’s industrial warehouses and side streets offer plenty of potential space waiting to be reimagined. Old brick warehouses have transformed into interactive art galleries, and countless buildings have served as Banksy’s canvases. Shoreditch’s appeal as a creative playground stems (at least, in part) from an urban, gritty underbelly, but clean-cut treasures aren’t in short supply—Shoreditch’s design sensibilities also influence its trendy pubs and cafes. A triangle of influences have made Shoreditch into one of London’s most distinctive and unusual areas. To the East, Bangla-town and Brick Lane – London’s celebrated curry mile – are a riot of smells and colours from the Indian subcontinent. In the West, the looming towers of Liverpool Street and the City represent the world’s most concentrated area of money-making talent, where a number of sophisticated business hotels have sprung up. And right in the middle of it all is Spitalfields market, a citadel of the working classes and home of the cockney music hall tradition. The result is an area where trendy bars sit next to cut-price Bangladeshi restaurants, where artists and fashionistas from Hackney and Shoreditch make their own clothes with fabrics from sari shops, and traditional cockney butchers share space with exclusive delicatessens. As well as its great restaurants, Shoreditch is famous for its street food. Brick Lane, home of much-loved bagel institution Beigel Bake, hosts a huge market every Sunday offering global street food from Canadian poutine to Thai delicacies. On top of their outdoor eateries, there are also enclosed market areas on and around the famous street, from Backyard Market to Sunday Upmarket. Another favourite is Pump Street Food Market, located in an old petrol station.

Whitechapel is a really vibrant area which is constantly evolving. You can walk to some of the best parts of East London - Victoria Park, Columbia Road Market and Shoreditch are all so close. There are some beautiful old buildings, great pubs and it's only a short tube ride into the centre of town which make it a really great place to stay. The surrounding areas and Aldgate itself are fantastic for shopping. Aldgate High Street has a range of well-known eateries and traditional pubs. Meanwhile, just around the corner is the entrance to Brick Lane, where you can find a plethora of bohemian and vintage clothing shops. There are two popular markets in the area. The first of which, Spitalfields, London’s oldest market is now a 7 day shopping destination with style, arts and traders markets. Conversely, Petticoat Lane Market is only open on a Sunday, but it is worth the wait. It is a world famous market and you really could find anything here.

With the Tower Bridge Experience, you take the elevator up the the walkways 30 meters above the street level and learn about the construction of the Tower Bridge and how bridges are built in general. It is not a detailed exhibition, but just enough to satisfy (non-bridge-expert) adults, teenagers and kids. You will also have a great view over London and down to the street and the Thames river, both through the windows and the glass floor that invites you to take spiralling pictures!
