Staying nearby, I spent an hour wandering up the road and back. There is a huge diversity of shops and restaurants, market areas which are open at the weekend and historic buildings. As I visited in the morning it was quite quiet but I imagine...More

While much maligned by true Indian/Pakistani aficionados, I always make it a point to walk the carnival-like atmosphere of Brick Lane to grab a curry when in London. Yes, the doorway hawkers are annoying -- offering a free beer with your dinner, etc. -- and...More

Saturday, sunshine, and food! A visit is a must just for the amazing range of Indian/Bengal cuisine. Yes you have restaurant workers touting for business outside their premises but this all adds to the hustle and bustle. The only downside was the amount of rubbish...More

We got off at Algate station, walked past the East London mosque and eventually emerged at the Truman Brewery corner of Brick Lane. The atmosphere is vibrant with activity, street art and delicious aromas from all the varied restaurants. Ranging from piri piri chicken, steak...More

Spitalfields
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.
