What you’ll do

You’ll join one of our hosts as they lead you on a journey through East London, flitting from retro boutiques to vintage stores to second-hand markets, and everywhere in between. East London is known for its penchant for vintage threads, and with your host to show you to the best spots, it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll come home with a few new additions for your wardrobe. This neck of the woods is where all the cool kids come to hang out and shop - but skip the overpriced hipster vintage stores and get straight to the good stuff. Meander through the mural-painted streets of Shoreditch, Hoxton, and Spitalfields. Explore the old-school markets, characteristic vintage stores, and independent boutiques as you indulge in some retail therapy. Your host is here to share with you all the vintage hotspots of their city, at whatever pace you’re happy with. You’ll feel like you’re shopping with a knowledgeable friend by your side, which obviously means you’ll buy way more than you planned to. Oops.
