So East London is one of my favorite places for inspiration and you will often find me coffee in hand taking in the sites, it’s a great source of inspiration so I thought I would list my top 5 favorite things to do when I roam Brick Lane. There are obviously so many things to do in the area but these are a couple of things i really enjoy.
1- I adore walking around the area and seeing the graffiti that changes on a daily basis along the street, you can often see new pieces being done on the street themselves. When I was at Camberwell studying my foundation degree I based my final project on graffiti and the layers of band posters you find pasted to the walls along these streets.
2. It is one of my top places to shoot my outfit photos because I feel the area really reflects my style and personality, Brick Lane has a lot of streets leading off it which is great for shooting interesting outfit photos, I got to snap these of the lovely tote bags for Moose Fest which is a charity festival just outside of London next weekend 5th November.
3 – I very much enjoy drinking coffee in any form so stopping by Kahaila and grabbing a Latte which is a charity run Cafe that sells ethically sourced coffee, I can also say they’re cakes are to die for. There are plenty of wonderful independant coffee shops on Brick Lane and the surrounding area.
4 – Vintage shopping, the Brick Lane area has some fab vintage shops, there are a lot that are over priced but there are some great pieces to be found if you have a good browse, Beyond Retro can be found just off Brick lane, Rokit on Brick Lane and Plenty more.
5 – Eating on Brick Lane is a must, you have the Original Bagel shops that sell rainbow bagels and cream cheese and salmon bagels by the hundred, Just off Brick Lane there is Pizza East that do fab pizza and in the basement a vintage photo booth awaits where you can pay by card.
Brick Lane is famous for its Indian cuisine and a total must. Also at the weekend the streets are filled with wonderful food Markets.
