I have a gaff in Mile End opposite Mile End Leisure Centre. I love the East End. I was actually born in London in 1953 unlike most other people that live there. This means I really am qualified to rate the place, again, unlike most other people. It's a great place, I LOVE it !

Love the eastend of London, been there so many times over the last 30 years or so. My most recent visit was March of this year and stayed in Bethnal Green Travelodge which was so handy and close to everything as well as being on the Central Line of the underground. I love the market in Roman Road on Tuesday... More

The East End consists of many small and quite distinct neighbourhoods: Mile End is an increasingly affluent neighbourhood about one mile (hence the name) from the City of London along the Whitechapel Road. While not as vibrant as its neighbours in Bethnal Green and Brick Lane, it has a charm of its own which makes this district worth a visit.... More

This walking food tour was very much worth the time and money. The walk was at an easy pace and the tour was informative as well as tasty. Our tour guide (Emily) made our experience both fun and interesting. We experienced a variety of London favorites, mine being the bread and butter pudding.

London's Jewish community once lived here. Most have now moved north and, today, the East End is populated by a rich array of different cultures from across the globe. This is reflected in the eclectic range of food on offer and the interesting shops. However, beyond the colourful facades of the buildings, there is a fascinating history and a walking... More

Crammed full of artists, musicians, night club workers etc and from all parts of the world ,makes it a very interesting place to live. We feel that the inhabitants of this area bond together extremely well and they all seem to help each other . It is the only area in London to date where we [ as older persons... More

Don't visit expecting to see any stereotype cockneys, its just a run down area full of immigrants and very few Londoners.

The home to Hugenot immigrants in the 17c then Jews from middle Europe in the 19 and early 20c then Bangladeshis in the second half of the 20c it has now become the heart of cool and cutting edge London. Great shops, clubs, bars, restaurants. Go on Friday and Saturday nights for the nightlife, and on Sunday for the markets.

Generally a dodgy part of London full of council housing. Try Bistroteca a trendy restaurant in a converted Laundry. Hard to fins as it has no sign outside but fun once you are in!
