Once infamous for its violence, gangsters, and poverty, the Bethnal Green area today is home to a booming street art scene, delicious diverse cuisines—thanks to waves of immigrants that have settled here over the ages—and independent fashion labels. With your base at the Town Hall Hotel, it’s easy to check out the underground music scene here with its experimental bands and DJs, as well as take in creative expression everywhere from dingy alleyways and galleries to abandoned warehouses. You can even join the city’s fashion-forward pack in Dalston, Hackney, and Lower Clapton for vintage and second-hand clothing.
