Brick Lane has always been famed for its many authentic curry restaurants. It now also has a reputation for its warehouse art exhibitions and trendy clubs and bars.
It is a must when visiting London and especially if you are into vintage clothing, music or street food.
THE place to visit if you’re a foodie. Every cuisine you can imagine. Stalls upon stalls of food to choose from. The graffiti along the streets is also to be admired. Also home to infamous bagel shops and curry houses.
Situated in the heart of Shoreditch, Brick Lane Market has grown and mutated over the years. Operating at its fullest on Sundays, Brick Lane and its surrounding streets come alive, teeming with sellers shifting their wares.
“One of London's most visually appealing markets, Columbia Road overflows with bucketfuls of beautiful flowers every Sunday from 8am-3pm”
“The original East London marketplace with loads of retailers, restaurants, market stalls and food traders. Open 7 days a week, a great day out for all ages!”
“The Whitechapel Art Gallery was founded in 1901 to bring great art to the people of east London. Internationally acclaimed for its exhibitions of modern and contemporary art and its pioneering education and public events programmes, the Gallery has premiered international artists such as Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Nan Goldin, and provided a showcase for Britain’s most significant artists from Gilbert & George to Lucian Freud, Peter Doig to Mark Wallinger.”
“It was built by Queen Victoria to give East End people a green space. It’s full of history.”
“Wow - the best Indian food I've found in town and it doesn't cost a fortune! This is not your typical English Indian takeaway style food. It has more of a street style menu with the addition of being in really amazing restaurant interiors. You feel like you're in a colonial restaurant in India, its great! Side note- if you are less than 6 people you may have to queue at busy times but its so worth it and they bring you drinks while you wait! If you are more than 6, then you can book”
