Brick Lane’s name was derived from brick making, but these days it has been transformed into the Chinatown of the sub-continent. This is where the Bangladeshi community live, and it is filled with curry houses’ sounds and smells. Even the street signs are written in Bengali.

The street is great for two things – Bengali fashions and Balti houses. Some of the finest Indian restaurants in LOndon can be found here. Or if your stomach can’t take it, try the world famous bagel shop at No. 159 – it stays open for 24-hours a day.

  •  Guest – “Ok thank you. We are planning a visit to London, its all new to us. What is the dlr? Sorry to be a pain but ill be with children so want to make sure I know everything. Also is it expensive? Thank you so much.”
  • Admin – “It's not a lot different to the tube -- it's an automated train that runs above ground. It takes the place of the tube in the area around greenwich and docklands. You can still use all the normal Oyster cards and travelcards on it. The prices depend on how you pay and which zone you're travelling in. Greenwich is in zone 2. Aldgate is in zone 1‍transport/‍train-fares-ticket-prices.php.”
