If you're walking along the south bank of the river, the tide is low and you want to have a party don't forget to check out the Beach Party on Festival Pier.

Drinks are usually BYO (Bring Your Own) and there's either a DJ or live music.

City Container

recommendation by bcebas

fancyfresh & funky

The buildings of this area are made by shipping containers. They show a new way to understand modern architecture. People who live here, are artists, designers or students so it is a lively area where not just for living, you can also enjoy the cultural atmosphere around it.

Museum of London

recommendation by goose

cultured

Great city museum, right next to a small part of the old wall that wrapped around london in medieval times. The focus of the museum goes from pre-history to modern times with some roman and saxon artifacts, but the most interesting are the sections about grubby old victorian England and the Great Fire, complete with a narration of extracts from Samuel Pepys diary.

Admission is free.

Founded in 1901 and situated in East London, one of Europe's premier public art galleries, presenting an international programme of contemporary art.

It usually has 2 really good selected exhibitions.

Don't miss the shop, it has a great books selection.

It's really near to Brick Lane, perfect if you are going there. It's open on Sundays.
