Brick Lane Market General Information
  • Type: Community
  • Nearest Train: Shoreditch High Street
  • Venue Description:
    The city of London is quite a melting-pot, an amalgamation of cultures from around the world, all coming together to give the city its unique identity. Nowhere is this more evident than on Brick Lane. This stretch of road, starting from Swanfield Street in the north, coursing through the neighborhood of Shoreditch, and meeting Whitechapel High Street in the south, is known mostly for being heavily populated by the city's Bangladeshi community. A walk along this stretch can really be an assault to the senses: the sharp and deep aroma emanating from the curry houses mixing with the smorgasbord of smells, fragrances, sights, sounds, and textures of the numerous vendors and salesmen of the Brick Lane market. This market is an important part  of the area, and is a place where you will be able to find anything, right from antique books to fresh fruit. It is in operation from 9a to 5p every Sunday. Discover this rich culture, bathe in the colorful explosiveness of it all, but do remember to be respectful and understanding of the cultural diversity.
