Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Hackney
London has never been an English city. It has always been an international city, living off trade and conquest and migrants. London's cosmopolitan nature is obvious in the East End, populated first by French Protestant refugees (Huguenots) around Spitalfields market, then by persecuted European Jews at the turn of the century, and post-WWII, by a Bangladeshi community who worship at the Jamme Masjid mosque. Brick Lane curry houses are a major foodie draw and Brick Lane market offers vintage fashion bargains. Stylists shop for film props at Beyond Retro, and Hackney's Columbia Road flower market is ideal for photo ops amid parrot tulips and tuberose.

Historic yet hip as you please, London trades tabloid gossip during intermission at West End theater premieres, works up a fierce appetite for East End curry at Tate Modern art shows, and crooks its pinky over high tea at Claridge's before trying on Central Saint Martins' latest punk-chic for London Fashion Week.
