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.More
