Brick Lane E1

Set in the heart of London, Brick Lane is a cultural treasure and one of world’s most exciting shopping destinations. Lurking at the feet of ultra-modern skyscrapers and just minutes from the bustling financial district, Brick Lane is a haven of creativity and eccentricity that embodies the best of Britain. Here, London's boutiques and vintage clothing stores rub shoulders with curry houses, bagel bakeries, fabric emporiums, antique outlets, nightclubs, restaurants and galleries.

Best known for:

  • Vintage and couture clothing
  • Sunday markets
  • Art & culture
  • World food

Broadway Market E8

Broadway Market, set between the Regent’s Canal and London Fields, brings Saturday morning’s stroll alive through a kaleidoscope of different tastes and cultures that can only help clear out the haze that one can get from a Friday night in London. Rub shoulders with locals and Hackney’s bohemian crowd to taste North African curries to high quality British burgers, shuffle the clothes racks for vintage bargains, and scour the stalls for vinyl Beatles records.

Best known for:

  • Vintage and couture clothing
  • Independent designers
  • World food stalls
  • Eclectic bars
  • Traditional pubs

Shoreditch E2

The likes of Damien Hirst and Alexander McQueen started the Eastward momentum towards Shoreditch.  Its arts scene has only flourished with the spread of affluence from the City causing the district to be a desirable destination for shoppers, restaurant-goers, and clubbers in search of a different edge to London.

Best known for:

  • Independent Brands
  • Jewellery
  • Crafts
  • Eclectic Bars
  • World Cuisine
  • Fine Food

Stoke Newington N16

Buried in the borough of Hackney, Stoke Newington has been hailed as the new place to be for London’s trendy brigade. Undoubtedly, much of the district’s success is down to its long-standing culture of local independent businesses, which is unique for such a relatively small area of the capital.

Best known for:

  • Vintage and couture clothing
  • Traditional pubs
  • Contemporary music

Dalston E8

Dalston is an East London gem that has managed to keep its off-the-beaten-path vibe despite becoming one of the most popular centres for stylish Londoner’s.  Lying North and North East of Shoreditch and Hoxton, yet still West of Hackney, Dalston has attracted a fashion conscious community that reflects its history as an outlier, distant from the industrial and commercial hubs closer to the central and City districts.

Best known for:

  • Vintage and couture clothing
  • Turkish food
  • Eclectic bars
  • Independent music 
  • Food markets
