East End is primarily known as the depressing backdrop of the long-running BBC soap series 'EastEnders'. But locals know better: this is no longer a disadvantaged district but the hippest area in the city. Shoreditch, Spitalfields and Hoxton form a nicely refurbished neighbourhood full of creative shops, delicious curry houses, slick cocktail bars and some of the most interesting markets in London.
London boasts around 350 markets – almost one for every day of the year. Throughout the week there are plenty of markets all around the city: go to Camden Market for fashion on Monday or head to Covent Garden to shop for presents on Saturday. On Sundays Londoners flock to the E1 and E2 postal code areas east of the City, which transform into one large market event. Here is a list of the 3 best East End markets.
