I know I have quoted this couple of times in this blog that streets are the soul of a city. Walking the streets of any town or city is the best way to get the pulse of the place, how it works, how it lives, how it goes on with life; the streets are the mirror of its residents.
Brick lane, a thriving hotbed of culture is a popular area in East London in the Tower Hamlets Borough. The area has interesting Bangladeshi restaurants, vintage clothes, Truman brewery, curry houses and lots of graffiti.
A walk down brick lane will bring you face to face with some real quirky street art. Some are intense, hard hitting, some are funny, and some are just absolutely beautiful. Bringing social and contemporary issues on the streets. Every few months we find a new mural. It’s an absolute treat to the eyes.
You can head to Brick lane by taking a bus to Aldgate or Liverpool street or Shoreditch High street. Likewise nearest tube station is Aldgate East or Liverpool street or if you take the overground then Shoreditch high street. You can walk independently and spot the grafittis. Some of them are in the bylanes of Brick lane. You can also opt for one of the London walking tours who will also give you interesting stories about Brick lane and its history.
