The attraction of this area might not be completely obvious, but once you have a proper wander around you get why the East End is such a hip place. Shoreditch buzzes with start-up companies, trendy coffee shops and über-cool bars.
The area surrounding Brick Lane is packed with vintage clothes stores, trendy cafés and pop up stores. It’s especially fun on Sundays, when small London designers sell quirky things at the Sunday Upmarket.
The nightlife of this area is definitely worth checking out, but has over the past years become a bit too trendy. For the latest buzz, head up Kingsland Road until you hit Dalston – that’s where the cool kids party these days.
