I fell in love with Lipstick Lab (make your own lipstick color), the Friendly Stranger (smoking accessories sold by very knowledgeable people), Saje (essential oils) and a host of other eclectic shops. Also visited Tokyo Smoke (chill art-house coffee shop with great baristas).

relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection
of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets,
