Centuries of fascinating history unfold before you when you’re in this village-like section of Tower Hamlets. You’re barely three miles from central London and yet here the city takes on an entirely different character, thanks to an ethnic mix that includes people of Bangladeshi, Somalian and Caribbean descent. Go a little further back in time and you’ll discover that this area was also a haunt of that dreaded, bloodthirsty villain, Jack the Ripper. Today, mercifully, it’s a kinder, more welcoming place. And no welcome could be warmer than that which you’ll get when you try out gay massage in Bethnal Green. Pleasures await you that will first quicken and then relax the heartbeat as your talented Tantric Soul therapist takes you through a variety of changes, from Swedish to deep-tissue to body-to-body. Happiness doesn’t come much better than this.
Back outside, you could check out music venues such as the Albion Rooms or grab something to eat at any one of the huge variety of multicultural restaurants and takeaways. Some visitors prefer to immerse themselves in local history – learning about the silk-weaving trade that exploded here during the 18th century. Sadly, the place took a turn for the worse and, by the end of the same century it was pure slums-ville with poor families living in decrepit, condemned properties. No wonder it was such an easy place for Jack the Ripper to roam, its shady streets offering him ample opportunity for carrying out wicked deeds. If the very thought has you shuddering, then waste no time in booking gay massage in Bethnal Green – it’ll help you calm down.
