I Went For A Walk: Allen Gardens & Nomadic Community Gardens

Another day, another walk. Graffiti can be ill of taste and vulgar but on this day in a place right next to the brilliantly vibrant Brick Lane, graffiti characterises the landscape. Going into both the gardens was like going into a different world, just a few metres away, I was walking down Brick Lane but here in the gardens, it felt like a haven away from the nearby concrete jungle. With the sounds of the rumbling trains on the London Overground, there was definitely an urban feel to the area but there was a rural element in seeing all the different plants being grown by the people. The sight of the graffiti on show means to call it spectacular would be an understatement, murals of all sorts created to liven up the surroundings, stunning imagery, artistic flair in the arts and crafts made, even a little suggestion box there for those who want to give some advice to strangers with problems. Definitely don’t regret having a wonder in these gardens, an eclectic place to go in a very eclectic part of London.
