Places to visit

Spitalfields is one of the fastest-changing areas in London.

It seems that almost every week another gallery or attraction opens so there are guaranteed to be some new ones since this list was put together. If you know of any which you think should be featured please contact us and we’ll do our best to include them.

Most of the places listed below are fairly small, and often quirky – it’s a good idea to combine visits to several of them, and perhaps to stop off in Brick Lane for a curry on your way. Don’t forget to check out the local street markets at the same time.

We do recommend that you check opening times and specific details before setting out on a long journey as limited staff numbers at some venues can mean their opening hours are sometimes a little erratic!
