Bethnal Green is becoming quite a trendy area to live and hang out.

There are lots of bars and restaurants along with places doing takeaways and there are also a couple of small venues for gigs in the area too.

It can be reached on the Central Line or also on the Overground with trains to Liverpool Street along with Enfield Town, Chingford and Cheshunt.

There are also alot of buses serving the area.

There are nice parks and also the Museum of Childhood which is a personal fave. Brick Lane is also not too far away.

Go and check it out!

As a place it lacks a focus
Feb 2020 • Solo
I was there, map in hand, for the January/February Condo art initiative which includes several galleries in the area.

It is an authentic East London area with a few highlights such as the Museum of Childhood, but doesn't appear to have a heart or a centre, while it is also an area of change and redevelooment.

super area!
Sep 2019
I really felt comfortable in Bethnal Green. Great connection from anywhere to this area. Great breakfast/lunch bars. Dinner was okay-ish. I think Shoreditch has more to offer there. Supermarkets closeby. Friendly people. Hipster bars and 'old-fashioned' pubs. Nice park. I really liked it!

A Slice of East London
Apr 2019 • Solo
Bethnal Green is a bustling inner city area of London. East London as the locals fiercely correct me. They are a proud bunch, with an interesting local history that dulls many other areas of this great capital city. There is a good cosmopolitan mix of many nationalities that have settled here over the years and, coupled with the more recent artistic set, makes for a vibrant place to visit. There are many tea or coffee bars, a street market, a childrens museum,many, many shops that will cater for most needs and a large Royal Park (Victoria Park) that hosts many events throughout the year, including firework displays on, or around 5th November and music concerts in the summer. If you want to experience a slice of London, visit Bethnal Green.

Not sure why Bethnal Green would be considered an attraction! I've lived here before and there really isn't much here.

Some might consider this area of London to be a bit less touristy and more authentic part of London. Bethnal Green is in the East London i.e. the traditionally poorer part. In truth there isn't much to see here, certainly nothing than an average tourist would want to see. Unless your shopping habits extend to cheap, mainly ethnic clothing or your eating habits mainly revolved around eating stereotypical British fry-ups, give this place a miss.

There are some "trendy" cafes especially in the area around the underground. The only remotely interesting thing about the shops are the traditional street stalls

The Real London?
Jun 2018 • Couples
Great mixture of cultures all mixed together, Cockney, Indian, African and many others all getting along together. It can feel a bit edgy in places, but this is real London. A great range of shops and eateries reflecting all of the different cultures, plenty of open spaces, the V&A Museum of Childhood, Bethnal Green rail disaster memorial, traditional pubs, Saturday street market.

74 years after the Bethnal Green tube disaster a memorial has been erected in the park by the tube station.It is a fitting tribute to those that lost their lives.All of the names of the dead are etched in the stairway.There is a plaque describing the events and small plaques with the memories of those who survived.Really worth a visit.

interesting area for seeing the east end how it used to be
Nov 2017
Bethnal Green some interesting roads of how Londons East End was like, old pubs and cafes where famous and infamous people went, The Krays, and Jack The Ripper. Pellecci cafe Bethnal Green Road used by the Kray brothers and in the film Legend about The Krays, Ezra Street and Columbia Street, Spitalfields Market and Ten Bells pub used by most of Jack the Rippers victims, and streets hardly changed from that time
