Quirky Shopping Street

Come join in the treasure hunt on this hip market street where antique furniture, bizarre clothing, and old knick-knacks are sold for rock-bottom prices. The thoroughfare, traditionally home to immigrants from all over the former Empire, buzzes with youthful exuberance as artists, students, and other local hipsters dart in and out of shops, checking out the latest non-trends. Sundays offer the best bargains: second-hand dealers turn out to hawk their wares en masse at the weekly flea market. Be sure to get a bite to eat at one of the ethnic eateries along the lane. Jewish bagels and Bangladeshi curry are great at satiating that post-shopping hunger.

Utrip Tips

* Local expert Gary says, "Hang with the hipsters, shop for vintage clobber and soak up the East End atmosphere at the Brick Lane markets. Be sure to pop in to D*Face's Stolen Space, one of the premier street art galleries in town."
