What's in the area:

Visitors flock to sights such as the the Tower of London, St Pauls Cathedral, The Gherkin, Spitalfields Market, Museum of London, Barbican Centre and the Old Bailey Court House. The magnificent Tower Bridge is also a noteworthy destination; as well as providing a perfect place for your holiday snaps, the bridge hosts a number of theatre shows and exhibition, and is an exquisite venue for corporate events.

As well as being minutes away from the famous Spitalfields Market, Liverpool Street station has great transport links to the rest of the city. It is also the terminal for Stanstead Express, the fastest link to Stanstead airport, and is a commuters haven for those living in east London, with direct train routes from Hertfordshire and Essex.

Shoreditch has a hip and trendy reputation and boasts vintage shops, independant cafes, craft pubs and both pop-up restaurants.

The famous Brick Lane Market takes place on a sunday and attracts throngs of people with its antiques, vintage clothes and music stalls. It is also the place to sample a variety of street food from around the globe while the further end of Brick Lane is home to an abundance of Indian restaurants.

What we recommend:

  • Judy’s Vintage Fair, Vintage Furniture Flea and Spitalfields Vintage Fair are held throughout the year at Spitalfields Market, making it a big competitor with Camden’s vintage scene.
  • The Barbican's Architecture walking tours allow you to gaze at most promiment post-war architecture in London.
  • Award-winning British Steakhouse Hawksmoor Guildhall, very close to Liverpool Stret station, is a perfect place to dine for a special occassion.
  • Stunning views, informative displays and virtual experiences at the Tower Bridge Exhibition.
