My main aim for visiting Bethnal Green was to follow a family history trail to St Matthew's Church. What an amazing place Bethnal Green is! Go on a Friday for market day and it is very colourful - stalls selling beautiful fabrics and clothes, food...More

its more than a tube station, but the defining area, Bethnal Green road, has no themed areas, shopes are randomly sprawled, the market stalls bring more feel, but the cheap fast food and the supermarket reflects it

Love Bethnal Green, great bars, open spaces, history. Close enough but far enough when staying from the centre of London. Good transport links and easy to walk miles.

Vibrant place if you look beyond the London traffic fumes and dirt. Fascinating history and character. I particularly recommend the Bethnal Green WW2 disaster memorial in 'Barmy' Park next door to the Roman Road entrance of the tube station, opposite St.John on the green church....More
