4 places to visit whilst you're in East London

things to do in east london bow

I recently mentioned in my post about renting in London, that I had recently moved to London. East London in fact.  I've been there for nearly 6 months now, so I've had time to do a little mooch around the East Ends. I thought a little list of all my favourite parts of East London might help you, and who knows, you might find some hidden treasures you don't know about!

hackney city farm

1. Hackney City Farm

I've only recently visited this farm (yesterday in fact) but if you're looking for a cheap, fun activity to do, this is the place.  It's free to get in, and it has quite a lot of animals for the size of the farm. You get to say hello to chickens, sheep, pigs, donkeys, goats and even some bunnies.  Theres' a cute little cafe to visit, with amazing food, cakes or just a cup o' tea if you fancy. If you have little ones there's a also a gift shop to show off your farm visit.  Have a look at the site and find some directions here.

greenwich park

2. Greenwich

If you fancy a trip to South-East London, I highly recommend Greenwich. It's definitely one of the most beautiful places in London, and it's home to the famous Greenwich park where you can witness this amazing view.  You can also visit the Royal Observatory, The Royal Museums, The Queens House or the Cutty Sark. It's definitely a must if you need a day out somewhere, you can literally spend hours there and not get bored.

3. Victoria Park

Victoria Park is my local park, as I live in Bow. I go there pretty much every week, and it's great for a brisk walk, street food on a Sunday, or brunch at the Pavilion. If you have kids, there's plenty of play areas for them to play on, some of which make me envious that I'm not a child! It's a pretty huge park, which also makes it the perfect park to jog around, which I'm yet to test out...

brick lane

 4. Brick Lane

Probably the most famous one on here, is of course Brick Lane.   It's famous for its markets, curry houses, vintage fashion and just overall culture. The best day to go is a Sunday in my opinion, and I just can't get enough of it. The vibe is amazing, and I could go every weekend if I could!

As the months go on, I'll be sure to add to this list, so please let me know if there's anywhere else in East London I need to try!
