Bethnal Green is becoming quite a trendy area to live and hang out. There are lots of bars and restaurants along with places doing takeaways and there are also a couple of small venues for gigs in the area too. It can be reached on the Central Line or also on the Overground with trains to Liverpool Street along with Enfield Town, Chingford and Cheshunt. There are also alot of buses serving the area. There are nice parks and also the Museum of Childhood which is a personal fave. Brick Lane is also not too far away. Go and check it out!

I was there, map in hand, for the January/February Condo art initiative which includes several galleries in the area. It is an authentic East London area with a few highlights such as the Museum of Childhood, but doesn't appear to have a heart or a centre, while it is also an area of change and redevelooment.

I really felt comfortable in Bethnal Green. Great connection from anywhere to this area. Great breakfast/lunch bars. Dinner was okay-ish. I think Shoreditch has more to offer there. Supermarkets closeby. Friendly people. Hipster bars and 'old-fashioned' pubs. Nice park. I really liked it!

Bethnal Green is a bustling inner city area of London. East London as the locals fiercely correct me. They are a proud bunch, with an interesting local history that dulls many other areas of this great capital city. There is a good cosmopolitan mix of many nationalities that have settled here over the years and, coupled with the more recent artistic set, makes for a vibrant place to visit. There are many tea or coffee bars, a street market, a childrens museum,many, many shops that will cater for most needs and a large Royal Park (Victoria Park) that hosts many events throughout the year, including firework displays on, or around 5th November and music concerts in the summer. If you want to experience a slice of London, visit Bethnal Green.

Not sure why Bethnal Green would be considered an attraction! I've lived here before and there really isn't much here. Some might consider this area of London to be a bit less touristy and more authentic part of London. Bethnal Green is in the East London i.e. the traditionally poorer part. In truth there isn't much to see here, certainly nothing than an average tourist would want to see. Unless your shopping habits extend to cheap, mainly ethnic clothing or your eating habits mainly revolved around eating stereotypical British fry-ups, give this place a miss. There are some "trendy" cafes especially in the area around the underground. The only remotely interesting thing about the shops are the traditional street stalls
