About Brick Lane

Est. 1400

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.

Exploring Brick Lane and the web of narrow streets around it takes you on a journey through the city’s past – it was here Jack the Ripper committed his infamous crimes – and captures the full glory of its vibrant present. As you walk your senses are besieged with the scent of authentic Bangladeshi cooking; explosions of colourful graffiti; the textures of leather, velvet and hand-knit wool; the polished curves of antique wooden furniture and the arresting shimmer of gemstones.

Brick Lane is a destination for those with a personal sense of style. Whether you’re looking for a unique outfit, a vintage dress, a perfect present, or a one-of-a-kind accessory, Brick Lane’s network of small and independent shops offer delights you won’t find anywhere else.

Discover Boutiques brings the best of Brick Lane to your home and offers intimate insights into the people and places that make it so special.

Transport for London Journey Planner

Car

Parking in central London is unfailingly hard to find and achingly expensive; take public transport if possible. If you must have your own wheels try the carpark on Sclater Street. Be aware, however, it is open-air market at the weekends, and is known to host the occasional rave.

Opening Times

Opening times vary – most from 11:00am
Monday is quiet and some shops do not open
