“Colourful London suburb”
Review of Bethnal Green

Reviewed 22 April 2017

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 etc. The shop window displays are equally colourful selling stunning gold jewellery and traditional sarees.

St Matthew's Church is an attractive 18th Century building and I was pleased to be able to get some good photos of the exterior. Pity that it was locked as I would have loved to have seen where ancestors married back in 1828!

Bethnal Green tube station is on the Central Line and gets you right into the middle of the suburb. The V&A Museum of Childhood is nearby, but I didn't have time to visit.

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

Bethnal Green road has lots of clothes stalls and little shops. It has a lot of food shops ( mainly Indian and fried chicken ) there is a fantastic cake shop called just cakes the owner is really friendly and helpful the cakes are baked fresh if you order but if you need one in a hurry he has a couple on standby that he will put your message or ornaments on

Don't dismiss it. It;s home to York Hall Boxing Club, the V&A museum of Childhood, Whitechapel road, The Blind Begger and the Camel, The Hare and the Florist Arms. Theres enough there for a[ pleasant alternative evening.

I have to admit to being biased in this review, since I live in Bethnal Green, but over the years it has just got better and better. It's a really exciting place with its markets (Brick Lane, Broadway, Columbia Rd), the green spaces (Bethnal Green, Victoria Park, Regents Canal), museums and galleries. Very close to Central London, totally worth a visit. I'm staying put.
