If you imagine viewing art in London, you’ll probably see yourself standing in a stuffy old art gallery or museum in the Central part of the city.

In the East End of London you can find the best art in the streets.

Take a stroll from Shoreditch towards Brick Lane and you’ll see some of London’s brightest and best murals.  The most striking ones can arguably be found on Redchurch Street. If street art is of interest to you then it might be worth looking up one of the areas many walking tours, some of which cover the subject in depth.

On your Sunday make a beeline for Brick Lane Sunday market which offers an incredible selection of second hand bargains, as well as some of the best street food in London.

Street food is a Shoreditch speciality.  Brick Lane is famous for its Asian cuisine, but is also home to other country’s cooking too, including European, Thai and arguably London’s best bagel shop in Beigal Bake.

If you enjoy Brick Lane Market then you’ll probably also enjoy the Columbia Road Flower Market, a treat for the nose as well as the eyes!  Flowers are sold in varied abundance but you can also find house plants and every herb you could possibly need.

These markets, especially the latter, are also a great place to pick up on some of the fabled ‘Cockney Rhyming Slang’!

If you’re looking for entertainment then you don’t need to leave the area either.  Independent cinemas, comedy nights and music venues can be found all over the area.  If you’re looking for the most luxurious cinema experience then consider the Electric Cinema.  Watch a great film on a comfortable couch, whilst sipping wine under a blanket, nice!
