Took a walk after breakfast before heading to the river after staying near Aldgate East tube station. Most shops still closed so lots of brilliant shutters etc to see. Little alley ways tucked away. Information en route. Take a camera and enjoy this unique experience.

If you are looking for a fun part of London to stroll around boutique shops and stop at small, affordable eateries, Brick Lane is the perfect choice. London is so big that sometimes picking an area to visit can be overwhelming. On our most recent...More

If you want to see quirky London this is the place on a Sunday. Markets, street food, street art...look down the side streets and go hungry as the food options are plentiful.

Lots of stalls selling scrumptious food ideal to pick up brunch. Vintage clothing / goods and arts and crafts on sale. There’s also some cool street art graffiti. Nice place to wonder around for a couple of hours

Had a wander around, a bit of window shopping and a salt-beef bagel on our way towards Spittalfields. Plenty of atmosphere and shopping possibilities.

This is a fun place to explore although it can be overwhelming when the market is on so suggest avoiding this for a first visit. There is a huge variety of shops selling lots of vintage stuff. I prefer Camden market for street food.

Forget Camden with its ridiculously crowded streets and market stalls, head to Shoreditch and Brick Lane. Sunday's are buzzing with vintage and craft stalls, food halls, shops, graffiti, street performers ... sooooo much to see and do.

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.

When I was there it was mostly Indian. And honestly they were all over rated. And I love Indian food too. If you’re close to Kensington there is a great Turkish place close to the high road. The brick lane restaurants are... More
