Brick Lane runs from Spitalfields at the North end down to Aldgate at the South.
In addition to its fascinating history, the street is best known for the various
markets that take place every Sunday (North of the old brewery) and also for the
unrivalled choice of Bangladeshi restaurants that you can find along its length.
As well as Brick Lane street market, Spitalfields and UpMarket covered markets are
both nearby. The Old Truman Brewery, about half way up Brick Lane, is home to a lively
media / fashion / arts scene, with the buildings converted into studios and workspace.
