Brick Lane Market in Spitalfields and Banglatown, Greater London You know Times Square? Yeah, this is not like that at all aside from being a highly populated area, at all times. This market is a hipster hive, complete with buskers beat-boxing, vinyl everywhere & so, so, SO many beards. Top tip, grab a Bagel @ the Beigel Shop, they will rival New York's, honest!
East London is known for its street art, which is always changing and evolving. This scene on Hanbury Street off the famous Brick Lane shows a mix of old and new art that makes the area worth visiting again and again. Photo from BBC_Travel on Instagram.
