The Brick Lane Area, East London

The streets around Brick Lane in east London are a world away from the nearby glass and steel skyscrapers of the City. With period lampposts, timeworn brick buildings, venerable old shopftronts and the odd stretch of cobbles, this area conjures up Dickensian London.
Famously lined with Bangladeshi curry houses, Brick Lane is also renown for its graffiti and street-art

Brick Lane is also home to the sprawling Truman Brewery complex, which now houses offices and exhibitions
