“Nice trip down memory lane!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We went on a Sunday (best day I'm told).
Great to see the old record sellers and traditional London sellers in operation in a fine part of London. Great coffee and unusual street food. We didn't try anything as we were full from the our trip to the Breakfast Club in Hoxton earlier... Great stalls, graffiti artwork and some nice new bikes on show at a reasonable price (not the second hand area)
We probably preferred Spitalfields but definitely a must place to visit in Landan town

“A disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

A big market but very little that makes you want to buy. The majority of stalls full of tat that charity shops would consign to the nearest dustbin. Time far better spent elsewhere.

“Brick lane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Lots to do here - plenty of bars, places to eat and entertainment, always markets and street bars / street performers. Only downside = always busy

Great for markets full of unusual clothes

“Graffiti Art City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Brick Lane Graffiti looks much better now than it did many years ago, it use to be good graffiti but now the Artwork and Murals on the walls are FANTASTIC.

If in London and want to see skilled Artwork this is a must place to go. If you just want to see Artwork but do not fancy eating burgers, BBQ's or Indian food, something more GRAND in Liverpool street is only 10 mins away, on walking for the more luxury dining experience.

If your not a food fanatic just take a stroll down the side walks, you will raise your eyebrows a few times at somethink.
