Street food, markets, graffitis, vintage clothing, boutique cafes and tattoo shops are some of the essential elements of the trendy and multicultural East London scene. But an East London experience has so much more to offer to people who stroll down the streets of this perfect mixture of old and new. On a weekend you can grab a cup of coffee from a small shop, make your way to the Old Spitalfields Market for some vintage shopping and street food, then stop by the good old Columbia Road Flower Market and buy some lilies for your room. If it is your first time in East London, it also offers some interesting activities from exploring the street art created by local artists, to student pub crawls.
If you are looking for some city summer vibe,London Fields and the Victoria Park by the River Thames are the perfect spots to enjoy a picnic and catch some tan with your friends on a sunny London day or maybe you can visit the pop-up city beach in the Box Park.
No matter what you are looking for you can find it in the trendy East End, whether it is a crazy night out with friends, some touristic activity or a chill day accompanied with some delicious food. So just take the tube and make your way to the east to enjoy some good vibes! I promise you do not need to be a hipster to come in:)
