Travel different – London4
Once upon a time, brick lane was the home of, first, London’s Huguenot community then its Jewish community and now street signs in Bangladeshi make it obvious which community call this home. However wondering along brick lane and surrounds we spied a lot of street art. Brick lane is now also home to artists and fashion designers. What an interesting mix!
Nearby at Shoreditch station sits another new innovation to London – bicycles. Called the Barclays bicycle hire is London’s equivalent of the bicycle sharing system used at first in Copenhagen, where its free. Paris, Barcelona, Dublin and other cities around the world have since introduced similar systems. But London appears to be the most expensive although a lot cheaper than public transport.
