Located in Shroeditch area, a quirky, funky, young, creative kinda area. The most famous place to go in this place is the Beigel Bake which open 24 hours. However, that;s not the only place to see in Brick Lane. go further and you can find the old truman brewery. I don;t know exactly what it is, but I can say,... More

What a fantastic mix of cultures and tastes there are on Brick Lane. The variety of foodis amazing, and the smells are out of this world. A bit of perserverence is required to find a gem, be it a piece of clothing or an elusive vinyl. Well worth a visit and I will certainly be back,

This is still a good place to sample real Bangladesh food. Many of the best authentic restrants are not licensed to sell alcohol but it is in order to bring your own. Ask a local or a cab driver for a recommendation. Last visit I was surprised to see Caribbean Moroccan and others replacing Indian restrants adding a new dement... More

We walked around looking for a restaurant and settled on an outside place that sold burgers and the like, I wouldn't really go back to Brick Lane again.

The brick lane market area has been in existance for hundreds of years. It is now very much an area where you can get good Bangladeshi food, with many very good authentic restaurants. On the street are many stalls selling cuisine from around the world, from Turkish cuisine to Carribean to South American. So you will be spoilt for choice.... More

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
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.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
