  • (upbeat music)

  • - Everybody knows London Bridge, Oxford Circus,

  • Borough Market, but I'm going to show you

  • some of the coolest areas around London to check out,

  • that you've probably never heard of.

  • By the way, if you're new here, I'm Jess

  • and I make lots of videos for people who are coming

  • to visit London and want to see the cooler side

  • of the city.

  • (upbeat music)

  • We're in the area of Clerkenwell, which has lots

  • of really good pubs and restaurants, but the standout

  • spot is Exmouth Market.

  • During the week at lunchtime, there is a pop-up

  • food market where you can get a really good affordable

  • lunch, by the way, make your way down Spa Fields Lane

  • if you want a cool little park to have your lunch in.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Even if you visit Exmouth Market when it's not lunchtime,

  • on a weekday, there are tons of really great food

  • and drink spots as well as shops to check out

  • while you're here.

  • (upbeat music)

  • London Fields is in East London, and it's a favorite area

  • amongst Londoners.

  • Besides all of the great pubs, bars and restaurants

  • that you can check out around here, you can head down

  • to Regent's Canal and go for a cycle or a walk

  • along the river.

  • (upbeat music)

  • This is also where the world famous Columbia Road

  • flower market is.

  • It happens on Sundays.

  • It does get really busy so once you've checked it out,

  • and you've had enough, make sure you head over

  • to Ezra Street and get yourself some oysters

  • or a pint while you sit on the sidewalk and enjoy

  • with the rest of the Londoners.

  • (upbeat music)

  • During the Windrush hour in the 50s, much of what became

  • the British Afro-Caribbean population settled here

  • in Brixton, so this is the best place to come

  • if you want African or Caribbean cuisine.

  • I'd recommend heading to Brixton Village or Market Row.

  • That's where you'll find those places.

  • You'll also see a bunch of boutique shops

  • and other types of restaurants too.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Do me a favor, write down in the comments

  • if you're now going to visit any of these areas

  • that I just talked about and don't forget,

  • before you come to visit London, watch one of my other many

  • London tip videos.

  • They'll help you to get the most out of your visit.

  • (beeps)

  • By the way, make your way down Spa Fields Lane,

  • a bug just flew in my eye.
