East End

The East End is less glamourous than its West End partner but what it lacks in glamour, it makes up for in off-the-beaten-track roughness and intrigue.

Once the home of London’s most notorious gangsters, the East End is where you’ll find some of the city’s most incredible street art and the delicious aromas drifting from the famous curry houses on Brick Lane.

It’s also where infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper, carried out his awful acts which still have people scratching their heads over his true identity to this day.

The East End shows an insight into London’s past with many of the Georgian and Victorian buildings still standing and boasting features of the day.

Look out for the terracotta carved Frying Pan pub sign high up above 13 Brick Lane, a quaint remnant of historic Whitechapel.

Home of theatre and glitz, London’s West End is a fond favorite with visitors for its shopping opportunities and exciting stage shows.

Visit some huge high street names on Oxford Street and Regent Street or check out some of the fantastic boutique shopping areas available on Carnaby Street and Berwick Street.

When you shop until you drop, drop your bags off somewhere safe and head over to sample some of the West End’s exciting nightlife.

Enjoy trendy, colorful cocktails, delicious selections of rum, whiskey and gin or simply dance the night away in one of the many clubs.
