This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL England
The old brewery buildings have become home to an arts and events centre and various shops and bars and it is now owned by The Zeloof Partnership. Business and leisure share the regenerated 11-acre (45,000 m2) site for restaurants, bars, shops, businesses, events spaces, offices, workshops and two weekly fashion markets. The buildings were expected to undergo significant changes as part of the Tower Hamlets Council's 2007 'City Fringe Area Action Plan'. The site was the location for the second Summer of Sonic event, a convention for Sonic the Hedgehog fans, which took place on 29 August 2009.

Pass By: Nomadic Community Garden, Weaver House Pedley Street, London E1 5ES England
The Nomadic Community Garden is found just off Brick Lane. It is a private area, that is open to the public daily. It is free but you can leave a donation. It is a super place for photography as there are art installations, ramshackled sheds and wild gardens to see. A great place to wander around
