From the old heart of the financial city, the bus snakes its way through to Brick Lane (famous for Salt Beef bagels and trendy artists and artistes). The bus weaves it’s way through Mare Street and past Hackney which has a very raw and honest feel about it. No pretension here. The 365 finally ends in Stratford City where the imposed affluence is worn like an ill-fitting suit.
