Brick Lane, East London

Stroll down Brick Lane and doze out on colorful street art: spray painted and stenciled designs; club, rave, and music festival fliers; and murals and collages of paint, newspaper, and found materials plastered on brick walls. Street markets in East London are widespread, so as you wander the streets and alleyways, you learn about upcoming drum and bass, dub, and underground hip hop parties by gazing at the walls, and then eventually stumble upon Old Spitalfields Market and the Sunday UpMarket, as well as boutiques of young, trendy designers sprinkled throughout the neighborhood.
