Where oh where are you? With visitors, we spent over an hour trying to find this quarter and ended up going to the old Indian market now confusingly named the Victoria market which was great. So this was totally useless.

We only had a brief amount of time to spend in this area so spent it in one of the shopping areas. The spice shops were incredible with different curries, spice mixes and seasonings necessary for East Indian cuisine. The Indian shop keepers were delightful--I've never been called darling so many times in my life!

What used to be an area that represented a small part of India and much of the Indian heritage and culture this area has metamorphisised into a multinational culture with people from all over. Street vendors and pedestrians juggle for space in the narrow pavements. It remains a bustling area, where any person finds themselves somewhat intimidated by the jostling... More

The smells, sound and colour. The hum and buzz of the people., makes you feel as though you have been to India! Lots to buy from spices and curry powders to exotic saris, gorgeous beaded sandals and jewellery. Take cash and bargain!

In a mordern city, you could be forgiven for thinking that you are in an area that is from yesteryear. Some of the buildings are extremely old, as are the traders. well worth visiting
