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. Work out when and for how long to visit Brick Lane and other London attractions using our handy London trip planner .
