This ancient neighbourhood has been defined by successive waves of immigration over the past 400 years. Possessing a significant number of historic buildings including Christ Church, Nicholas Hawksmoor’s masterpiece of English baroque, Spitalfields retains its distinctive character and comes alive with markets at weekends.
