When tourists think of London, they imagine Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, and attending a West End production. While the very central part of the city is clearly incredible with lots of things to see and do, there is so much more in the Big Smoke. If you're brave enough to venture outside of the middle of London, you can find neighborhoods with lots of character and intrigue. One of the most up-and-coming areas of the city is Shoreditch. The East London borough still has the grunge and Victorian influences of the past but combines those features with colorful street art and bohemian shops. You can feel like you've stepped into the past and like you're in a millennial, hipster future at the same time. Not to mention, your Instagram shots from this neighborhood will definitely be more unique than those sticking to Westminster Abbey. Here are 10 things you can't miss when visiting Shoreditch.
