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.

Strange using those two adjectives, but they describe Brick Lane very well. We initially went to Brick Lane for some Indian food (ended up eating Bangladeshi one night, Pakistani another) and discovered that there's a lot of history in this area. Veer off Brick Lane and explore the side streets -- they're really interesting and you can find indications of many of the different immigrant groups that lived here throughout the centuries. (I wish I had done more research in advance, because there's a ton of history here.) There's also a cool vintage market to explore. You almost can't go wrong choosing a restaurant -- they're not fancy, but they're really, really good. By the way, the nearest tube stop is Aldgate East -- just about a 1-block walk from the station to Brick Lane. We found it with no problem at all.

Make sure you check out the murals close to the Brewery that sits somewhere in between Spittal Fields and the south end of Brick Lane. If you fancy something to eat check out the Curry houses. The market is a cool place to go on sunday mornings.

Spent a lovely sunday walking around Brick Lane and as we got hungry decided to see what kind of cuisine they had. I was WOWed and overwhelmed, i wanted to eat everything, or at least try it a bit of everything hahah. Its a fantastic place to visit with friends and just grab something to eat, sit outside by the sidewalk, chill, if the weather is bright and sunny you will definitely enjoy it.
