The East End district revolves around the London bridge, as its name suggests it is the east side of the city. It's a London neighborhood close to The City and London Bridge. The mix of artists, students and young workers is striking in this former poor London neighborhood.
Where to sleep in the east end?
A beautiful inexpensive address really well located, with a bar in the basement quite incredible. Double room from 108 euros Where to eat in East End London?
Want to taste a delicate and tasty cuisine? Here is a restaurant tastefully decorated in a loft style. The ceilings are high, the walls are concrete and the wooden furniture is of the best taste. A very large dining room and a pretty marble counter on which beautiful and good things are placed, which immediately whet your appetite. Delicate and delicious Middle Eastern cuisine.
Dinerama is a food court in the heart of the Shoreditch district! A lively place, where we like to meet friends after a busy week at work. Here you can eat a dim sum or share tacos and have a drink in one of the street food stalls. The advantage is that there are no reservations to make (free entry until 7 p.m., then £ 3).
As Dinerama closes its doors around midnight, nothing prevents you - if you feel like it - from continuing the rest of the evening to tour the many bars nearby.
A stone's throw away, you can walk to the Queen of Hoxton, a very nice night bar.
POPPIES FISH AND CHIPS
In the area there is also the most famous of the traditional fish and chips restaurant. The decor of the 1950s takes us back to the past. SPITALFIELDS MARKET One of the biggest market in London (especially on Sunday morning). There are a lot of peddlers here and at the center of the Spitalfields market a food court where you can taste delicious things. We were there in the middle of the afternoon and we tasted Japanese pancakes filled with pastry cream.
THE good shopping address in the neighborhood:
BRICK LANE VINTAGE MARKET
Still in the eastern end district, a large basement filled with vintage clothes. You can also find vinyls and retro accessories there. The quintessential London vintage market. Here we get lost easily in the middle of the clothing stands.
There is a very nice photo booth in the middle of the market and often on weekends there are exhibitions on the first floor.
For music fans, there is a very large vinyl store, next to the Brick Lane Village Market is the Rough Trade East.
But this time if we were on a trip to London with friends it is for the secret cinema. Secret Cinema has been based in London for over 10 years now and offers viewers the closest experience to (re) experiencing the film. For this, they are made up of a well thought out recipe that works every time. We went there for an immersion in the Stranger Things series ... The meeting place is kept secret until the last moment, we were not sure what to expect. By email we receive the instructions as and when, on the place, the dress code required etc ... All this is super exciting. The day D total immersion, the place is crazy and the sets of the film are recreated with the greatest care. Of course I do not want to say too much, the experience is crazy run there! I read an article on the secret cinema which started with "Do not watch a movie anymore, live it", this is really the sentence that sums it all up :)
