Photographs of Brick Lane in the Snow

London has been snow covered over the last couple of days. The so called ‘Beast from the East’, a freezing weather pattern from Siberia has descended upon the city and turned it white.

Of course the city looks very different with a scattering of the white stuff. Not least because the entire city virtually creaks to a standstill. It means the roads are a lot more empty than normal and as a result there are far fewer people about. This combined with the snow can give parts of the city a very different feel.

Brick Lane is no different. An area we know well, it has a special feel to it at best of times and even more so in the snow. It’s buildings, street art and general bustle provides the backdrop for its latest covering. The streets branching off too look very different as does the whole area around.

So just a quick post this and so we thought we’d have a wander and take some pictures. It wasn’t the warmest of tasks but certainly worth it just to get the chance to explore this part of the city in the snow.

All the photographs in this post were taken over the evenings of 1st and 2nd March 2018. We’ve featured Brick Lane a number of times on the blog and for more Brick Lane related posts have a look here.
