Lets cut straight to it, Brick Lane will give you:

Brick Lane offers a feast for the eye, and a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

One of London’s most iconic streets

Street Art

Now I’m not sure if it’s politically correct to use the term graffiti when the talent beaming from these exhibitions is so obviously treasured and admired throughout the Brick lane area. People come from all over with their Nikons and Canons to flex those lenses on the colour and beauty of endless street art randomly splattered on nearby buildings.

Spicy Food

If this is your bag you will not be disappointed.

There are so too many restaurants to count, and shops like the one below ‘Arzu’ to try something new.

Love this shop – there was a huge queue as I walked past and whilst peering through the window the people in the queue were encouraging us to come in saying the food was really good.

Including octopus aka ‘takoyaki’ – but there was a tiny bit of octopus surrounded by a lot of batter. I’ve had octopus before and its like a tough rubbery prawn.
