Beware of pickpocketers! My wallet was stolen while we were standing for 2 minutes! If you go to Brick Lane make sure you keep you backpack in front of you and don’t keep anything in pockets that are visible.

I think we chose the wrong day, as it was between Christmas and NY so no-one about. Will go back again.

Maybe it was because we only made it there during the week but not much in the way of curry stores. We did find an Asian shop which had a good selection.

Just lost my wallet! I already used a cross body bag and kept it on my front. The compartment with zipper was fully opened, my long purse was gone. I was there just 5 minutes.

An overdose on anyone's senses, this vintage market is wacky and wild. There are tonnes upon tonnes of items hidden upon layers of clothing. Great choice, ideal if need an outfit for a party that's a one off. Mostly second hand items but many gems...More

A great spot, with loads to do, street food market, Rough Trade east, cool bars and boutique shops and of course some of the best street art in London. Don't forget to goto the Nomadic garden near the railway bridge..

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

Very difficult to pick the best one, why just stop at one? I doubt you will be disappointed.
