England, London Guide (B): Another London Walking Tour

Another London Walking Tour
For me a good walking tour should include some hidden gems I haven’t heard of but also some typical sights of the city. I like going off the beaten path of course but in my opinion important sights are there for a reason and I want to see them.

In the beginning of January I got to London for just a couple of hours as we got a great deal for a flight. I have been to London heaps of times. Due to that and the fact that we didn’t have much time we decided on a walking route before going and in my opinion, it was a great tour, I enjoyed a lot and want to share it with you today.

Have a great day walking through London! Whether it’s your first or your tenth time to UK’s capital, it’s a walk for everyone:

Starting point: Liverpool Train Station
Ending point: Westminster Abbey

Brick Lane

Brick Lane is the main street of the Bangladeshi-Sylheti community. At the end you find the Brick Lane Market – a huge flea market where you can buy antiques, clothes and more bargains.

Street Art on Brick Lane

It is an area popular for artistic people having a lot of galleries, street art, restaurants and markets. Don’t only stick to the main street as some great street art can also be found in the side alleys.

Street Art on Brick Lane

The best day to visit this area and especially the market is on Sunday as they are more people and all the stalls in the market are open.
