Brick Lane

27th August 2021

1. Vintage Shopping

Whilst Oxford Street has all the high street essentials, teenagers looking for something unique can head to the vintage shops of Soho, Camden, Old Spitalfields and Petticoat Lane.

2. Discover street art

Street art and graffiti can be found all over London but over the years Brick Lane has become synonymous for the very best. Head down there and prepare to be very impressed and inspired!

3. Visit The Victoria & Albert Museum

The V&A Museum has an unrivalled fashion and jewellery collection and the fact that it regularly plays host to world-renowned exhibitions shows it is definitely not just another museum and can captivate your teenagers attention.
