Once a downmarket part of town frequented by artists, Shoreditch is now one of the coolest and most exciting districts of London. With bankers to the west and curry house owners to the east, Shoreditch links The City with the East End of London. Brick Lane runs through the middle of the Shoreditch and it brings everyone out at the weekend for its colourful markets and street food.

Thanks to its busy markets, ethnic diversity and the coolest kids in town, Shoreditch is great for street photography. It’s also a great place to explore with its historic streets, town houses and street art.
