Five minutes on foot in another direction and you are on Brick Lane, famous for its amazing street food and Indian restaurants, its markets and fashion and craft shops. Shoreditch, Hoxton, and Islington are just around the corner, so whatever your taste in nightlife and entertainment, you are sure to find it here – live music, theatre and comedy, cinema, sports bars, all-night clubs and restaurants, art galleries, pop-up snack bars on buses, there’s even a cereal café! And if you head south you are only a short walk from Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and the South Bank of the river Thames, for all your historical and cultural needs. Situated a few minutes’ walk from the nearest underground station at Aldgate East, it is on many major train, tube and bus routes, and is easily accessible from wherever you are in the city.
