The Beauty Of Brick Lane


Back at the end of March, myself and one of my best friends decided to take a day trip to Brick Lane. I'd been hearing about it through social media for quite a while and as it was quite a warm, sunny day, we decided that it would be the perfect place to go and admire.

Despite getting lost quite a few times thanks to Google Maps confusing me beyond belief, I can honestly say it was one of the nicest days that I'd had in a long time. Shoreditch as a city actually reminds me a lot of Camden. If any of you saw my photo diary from there last year (you can check it out here if you haven't already!) or even if you have been there yourself before, you'll know that it's artistic, quirky and the streets always seem to be full of energy. There are lots of market stalls with people selling unique goods for really affordable prices and there's a whole heap of food that you can choose from if you start to get peckish!

As neither myself nor my friend had been to Brick Lane before, we decided (when we eventually got there) that we just wanted to explore and see what we could find. Of course, we had to make sure we got in a few Insta-worthy snaps too! We went to the market and had a look at all of the handmade bath bombs, dream catchers and artwork that was on display and then in the street itself, we walked along and got a chocolate churro, which was honestly heavenly. Whilst we went to a grassy area and ate it, we saw a man who was spray-painting graffiti on the brick walls. It was quite fascinating and we'd never seen anything like it before!

Down the little side road was where we found the pieces that are in the photos above. I wouldn't have cared if we stayed there all day, because there were so many different images to admire and all of them were so unique to the artist who created them. I think my personal favourite was the last one I included, which had the man and the woman embracing with each other. I just think it tells such an intimate story that nobody else will fully understand apart from the person who designed it.

If you're ever in the Shoreditch area, I'd definitely suggest taking a look at Brick Lane and seeing what cool works of art you can find. You'll honestly be spoilt for choice!

Have you ever heard about or visited Brick Lane? What do you think about street art?
Lots of love always,
