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.

I wouldn't rate this area as much of a tourist attraction in itself although it is home to the V & A Museum of Childhood and Victoria Park is nearby.
The largest ethnic group here is Bangladeshis and there are many more Muslims than Christians.
The Underground station was the site of a horrific World War II accident when many were killed and injured in a crush on the southern stairs attempting to enter the place for refuge in case of air attack.
It was a very run-down working-class area but its proximity to the centre of London means that there has been a degree of 'gentrication' and as other reviewers have noted there are plenty of bars and restaurants.
I have been here numerous times - I come from an 'East End' family - but as far as tourism goes there are other, more interesting areas outside of Central London.
