Brick Lane is in the heart of the East End and is one of London's most iconic streets. Historically it's been home to French Huguenot and Jewish immigrants, and now it's a centre for the Bangladeshi community.
Along with its heritage, Brick Lane is known for its food. The famous selection of curry restaurants and 24 hour beigel shops are London landmarks. In line with the vibrancy of the area, you can find cuisine from all over the world. Turkish, Japanese and Argentinian to list a few.
Street art is everywhere and the Old Truman Brewery has also become a cultural hub. It provides a home for exhibitions, events and creative businesses. Rich Mix is another excellent creative venue which hosts events and community initiatives.
