The Whitechapel Gallery

This gallery’s doors have been open for over a century now – long enough to see the likes of Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo display their collections on its walls. Whitechapel Gallery features artists from around the world working in a variety of different concentrations. From contemporary to modern art, this space is open to everyone with an appreciation for the creative scene. Open Tuesday through Sunday, Whitechapel is constantly refreshing its space to maintain relevance in such a transformative community.

Brick Lane

An area that has for the past several years evolved into the artistic hub of London is also home to one of the city’s most popular flea markets (one that is now far too mainstream for the locals). Brick Lane is a stretch of restaurants, bars, shops and galleries in Shoreditch that attracts young people from all over the city. Each Sunday the streets flood with bargain hunters and vintage lovers searching for quirky clothes and second-hand furniture.

Frame Fitness Classes

FRAME has solved the the problem of making fitness fun. From barre to boxing to choreographed dance routines, their classes offer high-intensity workouts starting with their ‘quickie’ 30-minute sessions. We recommend their 45-minute rebounding class to get in a crazy cardio fix while listening to great music. Plus, it isn’t often that you find a room full of adults on mini trampolines.Check out there venues across the city including Shoreditch, Kings Cross and Queens Park.

Columbia Road Flower Market

Columbia Road comes to life each Sunday with the vibrant colours and sweet scents of the flower market. There are a variety of different florists, each with their own specialty, and some who have been stall owners for decades. One particular vendor, George, has been with the market since 1949, so if you’re looking for a quick history lesson or some foliage and flowers, then he is the man about town.
