For something different in London, it has to be Cheshire Street

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

Do you ever think that shopping has become something of a same old same old experience? If so, then next time you’re in London have a look at Cheshire Street. Located just off the famous Brick Lane in East London, you’ll discover a wealth of shops that offer some individual and unique goods for sale.

These include vintage clothes, artisan gifts and furniture, as well as some exclusive designer offerings. This area is becoming more and more popular and weekends will find it bustling with activity as people are discovering such delights as the Hauser and Wirth Coppermill Art Gallery.

Sundays bring more excitement to this area when the Brick Lane Market cuts through Cheshire Street. This market is renowned for its sometimes bizarre wares – but which is definitely worth a visit!

Go to Cheshire Street and it is certain that your shopping spirit will be totally rejuvenated.
