This could and should have been an enjoyable few hours, instead it turned out to be a pretty brief experience and I have a good idea of what it feels like being a sardine rammed into a sardine tin. It was busy, stupidly busy, uncomfortably...More

Attended the Monika art fair here and thought it was a great space for this sort of thing. It was large, spacious and light with an edgy bar and nice toilets. Easy to get to and in a great area.

Every city needs a place like this - even Havana has one, but it needs to be protected against commercial developers. The complex is astonishingly large, with large exhibition areas, shops and places to eat, plus a large performance venue at the rear. My last...More

A wide and varied collection of vintage clothes, you'll need to have your searching head on as there's a lot to see, worth the search though.

The Old Truman Brewery is a really good place to visit. Great choice of food, rinks, shopping and fun. Will definitely be back on our next trip to UK.

I went mainly to visit Rough Trade Records who have a large shop on the site. It has a run down post-industrial hipster feel to the place. The main business on site seemed to be some sort of Crazy Golf. There are also cafes. Worth...More

Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
