Foodies will love living in Whitechapel for the sheer amount of world food on offer. The historic and long-established Whitechapel Market stretches along Whitechapel Road and serves up a range of fruits, veg, meats and spices from Asia. Talking of food, if you’ve never been to Tayyab’s, it’s a must: here, you can sample proper Punjabi cuisine. It’s BYOB here, so you can save some cash on the drinks front. Just remember to book in advance!
If you’re up to it, book a guided tour and retrace the steps of Jack the Ripper, the famous serial killer whose stomping ground was the cobblestone alleys of 19th century Whitechapel. Listening to tales of his gruesome acts isn’t for everyone, of course – and thankfully, there’s plenty more that this buzzing district has to offer.
For a cute date night or a film night with your friends, visit Genesis on Mile End Road, a trendy independent cinema that charges less than the price of a pint to watch a movie.
