Ok, first off, I need to obsess over the hotel that I'm staying at, The Old Town Hall Hotel,in Bethnal Green. Give me gigantic ceilings, beautiful mid century modern furniture and L'Occitane products in the bath and I'm totally won over. It only opened three months ago and houses the critically acclaimed Viajante restaurant.

The story for my trip in London is a segment called "24 hours in East London." If you only have a day, there's really no where else in London you need to go. 


I suggest you start at the Old Truman Brewery and Bricklane. Here, you'll find one of the greatest vintage shops around for bags and boots, the best pizza, the legendary Rough Trade East record shop and tons of independent galleries. 

Story Deli, Pumpkin and Chorizo Pizza

This time, I came by on a weekday, but if you want the full experience, come on a Sunday where Bricklane is lined with stalls and the indoor Up Market has tons of new designers selling handmade goodies. I got my favourite silver spiral ring here last time I came through.

You will also find every Indian curry house available to man here.
