Discover the eclectic Shoreditch & Hoxton area with a local in the know who will tailor a tour of East London based on what you like and what you’re eager to experience.
What to Expect
Your day will start noon at Spitalfields Market which is one of the area’s oldest market, over 350 years old. Here you will wander around the eclectic mix of retail and restaurant stalls to explore over the two stories of this gorgeous stone edifice, which is like a hipster version of Covent Garden. Your local will meet you at the market where you will stop for a coffee at a cafe that many locals swear serves the best coffee in town. Here your local will have some time to get to know you and what you are eager to experience. He/she will fit his/her insider knowledge of the area to your individual needs. The tour is unscripted so even though you will book an initial timeline, the day might evolve in different directions to ensure that you experience Shoreditch your way. 

Wander off to Brick Lane, which is the most visited narrow lane in East London. Londoner’s argue it has some of the world’s best Indian food, outside of India, but there are quirky cafes, record shops, vintage shops, market stalls and more. There is much to discover here, on a street that is as rich in history as it is in cuisine. Along the way you’ll make tangents exploring warehouse conversions of vintage shops and outposts of trendy clothing designers. At 3 pm you would have built an appetite so you will stop for late lunch at a buzzy restaurant serving a range of wonderfully tasty Indian street food dishes. The vintage décor is inspired by the Iranian cafes of late twentieth-century Bombay and the atmosphere sets this restaurant in a league of its own. 

After lunch you can explore the two-level bespoke shipping containers where artists and creative designers exhibit and sell their work. There are also restaurants and bars with several terraces to eat, drink and look out over the urban sights. At 5 pm you are finally off to Old Street via Hoxton, known for its vibrant nightlife. Your local will lead you past some of the trendiest bars and rooftop gardens. Wander down side streets to view some great street art and uncover hidden gems such as a motorcycle cafe within the fabric of the community. After a thorough exploration of Old Street your local will lead you to the tube station where the tour finishes.
