A brilliant place for everything from asian clothes shopping to western, Small grocery to big grocery shopping to even everyday stalls! And even all the high street banks. Kfc, Mcdonalds to fish & chips! Will fill everyone's appetite.

I came to BG to visit the Museum of Childhood but ended up having a good walk around the area which is more developed and cosmopolitan than I expected. There are lots of one off independent businesses especially along Old Ford Road.

Bethnal Green is fast transforming from a no-go neighborhood into a hip area. There is an influx of boutique hotels, art galleries and swanky lounges here. You can find flower markets, street food, clothes stalls next to trendy restaurants, pubs and boutiques.
