Southwest End Girls head East

Just over a week ago, my older daughter and I made a day trip to East London.  Now this is a remarkable experience as we embark on the District Line from Kew and get off at at Whitechapel.  Remarkable because Shoreditch is just teaming with life - and with colours, sounds and smells you don't see in the Richmond area. We took a look inside the Whitechapel Gallery (what a space!), poked around Petticoat Lane, then headed off to Spitalfields Market.  I wasn't expecting such a fantastic place - this market is packed with extremely high quality clothes, food and crafts.  It's more fun than Covent Garden.  We then made our way to Brick Lane as I was on a mission to photograph some of its famous murals.

We rounded off the day by catching the tube at the Monument.  One of the best days out ever.
