There is only one word to describe Whitechapel: unmissable. In a few more words, it is fantastic, stunning, glorious, diverse, fabulous. Just get yourself down there. It has everything you could want and more - a cool market where you can buy just about anything...More
Whitechapel in East London. traditionally a poor part of London and to be perfectly a wonder around this round and you'd think it still is. There is very little of interest for the average tourist unless they happen to really really want to see shops...More

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets.
