East End is different, and rapidly changing, as new buildings are expanding from the City. It could disappear soon as the place, you see in the movie Legend" and rear people speaking cockney. From Jack the Ripper Whitechapel to hipster's Shoreditch and from nice and cosy Spitalfields market to the lights of Canary Wharf and Billingsgate fish market, it is... More

If you can get on a walking tour of the area you will find it so much more informative as just wandering around you wont find it really interesting

Fascinating 2 hour walking tour by Ben Slow. He was very informative and well organised with excellent knowledge. His passion about the area is quite infectious. Amazing (and surprising) art. Can't say any more - you need to find out for yourselves!

I am a native Londoner and although born in south west London my family came from Canning Town and other parts of north east London. I still shudder at the memory of my handicapped aunt having to live in a hideous tenement a couple of hundred yards east of the Tower of London, with no bathroom and having to share... More

This is a part of London that has more history than the rest of London put together. That's why I live here. East London is as vibrant and colorful as it's past. You can experience Brick lane market in the daytime and do the Jack the ripper tour in the Evening. There are some of the best pubs in London... More

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
