Hanging Out in The Vibrant & Exciting District of East London

East London is a superb place to visit that is a very distinctive part of the English capital that offers incredible shopping, dining and entertainment. There are many attractions in the area that are very interesting to visit and are not necessarily on the typical tourist trail. Travellers will be guaranteed that they have a great time when heading here as there are some unique places to visit. A great example is Hackney City Farm which is something that many visitors to the capital probably wouldn’t expect to see. This farm has all the usual animals with pigs, ducks and chickens wandering around and is definitely the perfect place for a family day out. 

Boutique StoreThis destination is a lot of fun but also promotes an environmentally-friendly message and there are several activities that are held to engage members of the community. There are many places to shop around London and tourists will feel inclined to give Oxford Street and the designer stores of Knightsbridge a visit. Stoke Newington High Street is also a top destination that has vintage clothes stores, inviting pubs, lovely bookshops and numerous coffee shops with tasty beverages. It has a relaxed vibe about it making it very accessible to anyone who visits, and offers a range of excellent restaurants that are ideal for the evening.

East London has many amazing accommodations so travellers will be spoilt for choice when they head to this part of the capital. One of the best places to choose is The Montcalm London City at the Brewery Hotel that is based close to Barbican tube station. Tourists will easily be able to travel around from this residence that is ideal for both business and leisure tourists. There are many luxury hotels in London for families, but this accommodation is great for the variety of rooms it has available such as deluxe and club twin rooms. This allows travellers in groups to stay close to each other during their holiday in London.

Street FoodShopping in the capital should be done at markets as there are plenty that offer a variety of items. Borough Market is a fabulous destination that has a long list of delicious food products available including meat, fish, fresh bread and cheeses. Often the traders there will provide free samples of their goods, so it’s always important to ask. London Fields is a very famous part of the city that offers something special for hipsters, and is a gorgeous green space that is always busy at the weekends. In the summer months, there are music festivals based there, and any other time it’s a good idea to venture to one of the pubs and bars nearby.

A very famous part of east London is Columbia Road Flower Market that’s held on a Sunday and provides a stunning array of blooms along the street. There are many galleries, unique boutiques and cake shops on this route that are lovely to head into when visiting. There are huge crowds when the market is on, but that adds to the exciting atmosphere that is felt by tourists who visit. Dalston Eastern Curve Garden is also a superb place to head that is a green oasis often used for workshops and events, with a wonderful summer garden café.
