If you’re looking for some visual inspiration, why not visit Shoreditch, Camden, Southbank or Brick Lane where there’s a display of murals on the side streets. One cannot help but question why artists have chosen these locations. So how could you discover Street Art in East London?
London has a wealth of creativity in Brick Lane. A street in East London within the borough of Tower Hamlets. Famous for the flea market which opens from 9 to 5 on Sunday but the shops in the area are open daily. It’s home to historical Bagel shops.
An ideal place for retro lovers and bargain hunters with stalls selling vintage clothing, antique items, bookstalls, bric-a-brac and unusual things, like camera repairs and even down to street food. Visit the galleries and cafes and especially the food market in the boiler room house and get some ready – made world food for lunch. There’s a rich diversity of products to suit most people’s taste as well and known to many as the place to indulge in Asian food. I heard that there’s even a vegan restaurant housed within a double-decker bus.
One of the most interesting things about the area is that in the midst of a busy market, if you happen to be walking along the lane, you will find murals and street art along the walls of the quiet side streets and it’s worth keeping an eye open for them. Let’s pay tribute to the artists who’ve taken their time to carry out the work in various weather conditions. Some can be found in derelict parts as well as open areas.
Experience these colourful visuals and don’t forget to have a camera with you to capture the stunning pictures.
If you don’t mind the crowd on a Sunday afternoon, then it’s a place to visit and
reminisce about good times after searching through vintage items.

I love street art. I have been on a street art town in my home city of Winnipeg in Canada and it was great. Brick Lane will have to be on the agenda of my next visit to London.
I just love the creativity behind street art and I’m glad you’ve got Brick Lane on your agenda
This is really cool. In Toronto there’s an artist in my area who does the same thing. They are SO talented! I am always looking for unique things to do when I travel and I have book marked this as something I might do on my next visit.
