Whoot my first proper “Guide to London” video entry!
The video is a very quick rundown of some places you’ll probably see me around Bricklane and Shoreditch. I filmed this and another video in a day so much of the audio and video is a bit off… sorry!
I was wandering down along Bricklane and picking up sights that stuck. I’m hoping to do more local guides and break away from the usual big sights that other travel videos have covered already or at least give it a better spin 🙂
So the places I’ve mentioned:
Backyard Market http://www.backyardmarket.co.uk/
A weekend market that has been running for over 10 years. It has a bunch of independent stall owners selling arts and crafts. A great place to go shopping and pick up a present for yourself or someone else.
Sunday Upmarket http://www.sundayupmarket.co.uk/
As the name suggests, a Sunday market with a stronger focus on food with a few arts and crafts on the side. I recommend coming hungry, your choices are quite varied!
An interesting cafe/hang out space. There are a few in the UK and several of these around the world. The idea is that you don’t pay for anything apart from your time at these venues. The venues are like a second home with a fully stocked kitchen, board games, comfy chairs, books and even meeting rooms! I like to come here as an alternative co-working space.
