Brick Lane, Gherkin, Lloyds Building

I went to the East End of London today, took pictures in Brick Lane, Petticote Lane, LiverPool Street area, The Gherkin and the Lloyds Tsb building. All Pictures taken by me.

Quote:
Brick Lane (Bengali: ব্রিক লেন) is a long street in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, in the East End of London. The street runs from Swanfield Street in the northern part of Bethnal Green, crosses Bethnal Green Road, passes through Spitalfields and is linked to Whitechapel High Street to the south by the short stretch of Osborn Street. Today, it is the heart of the city's Bangladeshi-Sylheti community, and is fondly known as Banglatown

i started from the tail end of Brick Lane, and walked my way in front. Brick Lane is one way street and given today was Sunday market the place was packed with people and shop stalls on the street

That is one of the famous Bagel shops in London, very popular with tourists, and during the night one of the few places that is open, so very popular with police and ambulance services on night duty. The salt beef bagel is very good

agreed the price is very reasonable in that shop, my favourite is the Salt Beef Bagel with mustard and Minestrone soup. The Pastries and cakes are good also. Here is the last of my pictures from yesterday
