I went with my son to see the graffiti art, not my usual sort of place to visit but glad we went to have a look. Lots of good, reasonable priced places to eat. Something a bit different and not for everyone but worth a look.

Always a must for me everytime I am in London. Great choice, food and prices that are considered as a bargain compared to the rest of london.

We had the best time in Brick Lane market, after all touristic places in London, this one felt like it had locals as well as all the rest of what I was looking for in London. Great mixture of everything: people, food, merchandise, all sorts of stuff, lots to look at, taste, listen - This is what Camden Market used... More

If you enjoy delicious food, second hand delights etc come on a Sunday, there is usually a large amount of humans but worth braving the crowds. Great to find art work but local artists and if you are after fresh flowers simply follow the trail of people carrying brown paper warped flowers to find Columbia flower market. Aim for 1-3pm...

If you're into amazing vintage pieces this is the place for you! So many amazing shops, but the pieces aren't cheap. There's a warehouse underground that's open Thursday to Sunday with lots of little stalls with vintage and tailor made garments out of recycled clothes, as well as their own clothes for sale.

I was there with a friend for the Brick Lane market. The Sunday we were there, it was raining. It was the tail end of Hurricane Bertha so the rain came down in buckets. We spent much time looking over clothes under various tents set up for the market. However once the rain let up we were able to walk... More

If you are looking for any type of Indian food this is a perfect place. Look around and you will find south Indian food also. Indian supermarkets, even an Indian hair saloon. You can find chicken birayani from £5.

On a recent visit to London, I made a visit to Brick Lane. I got the tube to Aldgate East, and Brick Lane is at most a 10 minute walk away. It was early evening when I got there, just as Brick Lane is getting ready for the evening. There are hundreds of visitors and touts outside the restaurants enticing... More

Brick Lane does have a certain character, unlike the ubiquitous global chain stores of Oxford Street and Regent Street. The main attraction is the curry houses which are numerous, but if you are self-catering, then it's worth checking our the little supermarkets for fresh Asian veg and spices. I tried several curry houses during my stay and found them to... More

An excellent walk down Brick Lane taking in the wonderful multicultural atmosphere, shops, street art,excellent curry houses, and a host of other attractions from all over the World. A wonderful mix of buildings and architecture including the old Truman's Brewery and side streets that take you back in time.
