Brick Lane, London

3.9
Head to Brick Lane to satisfy your craving for curry and get a taste of London's edgy artistic side. The scene of the infamous Jack the Ripper murders (the Ten Bells Pub still stands), the neighborhood is now home to a large Bangladeshi community. Treat yourself to one of the best-tasting curries you can find outside the Subcontinent before popping in and out of vintage clothing stores, trendy boutiques, and art galleries. Building walls feature graffiti by famous artists such as Banksy, and the street hosts numerous festivals throughout the year. If you visit in summer and fancy a pint, head to the local beer garden. The best day to visit is Sunday, when the vibrant weekly market full of crafts, secondhand goods, and street performers takes place. Plan your visit to Brick Lane and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our London trip itinerary builder.

    Brick lane offers an open air market that shows new and old clothing and merchandise alike. The prices are usually extremely fair and you can often find some hidden gem for yourself amongst the shops....  more »

    This neighborhood is not far from the Centre, is located in zone 2 in London. The main attraction are numerous pubs and many, but many Indian restaurants. Worth checking out!

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
