Exploring Shoreditch





This weekend, we decided to take a trip east and explore more of the city we live in. I've always lived to the west of London, and whilst I love living in west London, it can sometimes leave you feeling a little disconnected from the city. 

First we took a trip to Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium, London's infamous cat café, for some tea and cate - and our course cats, but more on that later. After we'd spent enough time with the cats, we decided to take a walk around the local area and spend some time exploring Shoreditch. It's pretty far from where we live, so it was nice to be able to take some time to explore. 

Shoreditch is the latest 'hipster' area of London, and is full of quirky stores, street food and of course street art. I loved walking down all of the cobbled streets and taking a look at some of the amazing art on show. I'm not normally one for graffiti, but some of the designs on the walls around Shoreditch are simply stunning - not your average 'sam was ere 2k16'. 

Whilst we were over that way, we decided to stop into Beigel Bite to try one of their famous 'Rainbow Bagels' - honestly, they were a little disappointing, they pretty much taste like a regular bagel, but they look like they were crafted from play dough. It's worth trying once to say you have, but I don't think I'll be having them for breakfast every day!

After we'd stopped off at Beigel Bite, we headed over to Spitafields Market to do a little shopping, as it's only a 12 minute walk away. If you're looking for something quirky, or something that you won't see on everyone (Zara, I'm looking at you!), then definitely head down to Spitafields Market. 

If you're looking for a quirky place to eat or drink and cool streets to wander, then Shoreditch is the place for you.
