I think Brick Lane has to one of my favourite venues for a Sunday afternoon jaunt, and as I got to spend a long weekend in London, that’s exactly where I headed.
It’s not touristy like the Tower of London is touristy – everyone’s made a bit of an effort to get here because they want to see and be seen and to be immersed into the intense spicy mix of humanity.
Brick Lane; it’s a full-on sensory workout and everyone’s got a camera!
Feel… the people. Yes, it’s slightly on the sardine side but it’s totally manageable - and I’m someone who really doesn’t do big scary crowds. You’ll step through small doorways into huge run-down warehouses – transformed into vintage fairs or food festivals. You’ll love it.
Smell… the food. It’s everywhere and from every corner of the globe.
Hear… the music. Buskers and beat-boxers, dj’s and poetry. It’s all here to hear.
Taste… you know the food I mentioned? Yeah, that.
See… the street art. If you go for one thing, go for this!
