Shoreditch is now considered one of the coolest neighborhoods in London.
In the past, it was a neglected East London neighborhood. In recent years it has changed its face and become a place that attracts artists, musicians, painters and more. The graffiti on the walls in the neighborhood is impressive, and there are even graffiti tours in the area. We walked around, saw the murals, and also caught some graffiti artists at work.
The most exciting streets are Brick Lane and the roads leading to it. With lots of colorful shops, vintage stores, and coffee shops. Nearby is the old Spitalfields market - a huge indoor food market with food stalls from all over the world (of course, with vegetarian and vegan options alongside stalls that serve meat dishes). Near the food areas are stalls of clothes, sunglasses, bars, and restaurants. On Sunday, there is a flea market at Brick Lane, which adds to the atmosphere, but also, on the other days of the week, it's fun and exciting there (and a little less crowded than Sundays there).
Important tip - it takes time for the neighborhood's people to get started in the morning (it's probably tiring to be cool), so don't arrive early. The district is awake at around 11 AM.
