London is renowned as a cosmopolitan hub. Nowhere is the capital’s proud multicultural identity displayed more clearly than on Brick Lane: famous for its market, curry houses and celebration of culture.

Take a look at the street signs and the multicultural influences quickly become apparent – not many places in the UK have street names accompanied by translations.

Common themes include spots to stop for a bite to eat and street art. Both can be found all over the place.

The Old Truman Brewery used to make beer. Regenerated and repurposed, these ten acres of buildings now contribute to brewing the East Lane cultural cocktail. They encompass creative businesses alongside independent shops, markets, galleries, bars and restaurants.

The former brewery’s imposing chimney is something of a Brick Lane landmark. While the rest of the old brewery has been transformed, this remains as a reminder of its original purpose.

It’s not just the street art that is colourful. Doors, shutters and sometimes entire exteriors have been tinted with matching colours – even those which are a tad rundown.

Some walls boast about as much art as an entire room at the National Gallery.

Remember, this is hipster town, so expect to encounter some fairly outlandish get-ups.

Why not take some time out the Cereal Killer Cafe and enjoy any of 120 nostalgia-inducing cereals with a choice of milk and toppings?

…Or stop by either of Brick Lane’s famous bagel shops and indulge in what are arguably the tastiest bagels in London. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, these are great places to end a night out.
