The East End of London is the area closest to the ancient City of London and consists of the city centre, the South East, East London and the West End. There is also an East Sub-Region, which is used in the London Plan for planning and reporting purposes. The East (E) postal district is another part of East London; it covers large parts of the North East and South West of London, as well as the East of England and the East Midlands.
The most recent iteration (2011) covers seven boroughs north of the Thames, in addition to the three boroughs south of it. In addition to these seven, the eastern sub-region also includes the district, all north of the river. Some of them are called “East London” because they are poorly connected to the north, but south of it, like the north-east, south-east and south-west of London.
Roman roads leading to Bishopsgate and Aldgate began construction of the first railway line from the Thames to the city centre in the 17th century. In 1873, a new government merged the boroughs of East London, East Ham, West Ham and East Anglia to form the core of our present-day community. In 1876, the construction of the region’s railway lines along the eastern bank of the river began.
The first phase of the East London to East Anglia rail line was completed in 1935, and there is still no direct link between the east and west sides of the central business district of London.
This area stretches from historic Wapping to the famous Canary Wharf and offers a variety of restaurants, shops, cafes, hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. The east London countryside tells a story of rise and regeneration, with many of the city’s most famous landmarks including the Tower of London, the Royal Albert Hall and the London Eye. A prehistoric fish thought to be extinct has been discovered by fishermen on the banks of the river on the north bank of the Thames.
The history here is maritime per se, and much of the available real estate is located in converted warehouses on the river, with a variety of restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars, restaurants and shops.
This means that life on the water is still possible in London, and the Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre is a great place for water sports enthusiasts.
Cutty Sark’s Painted Hall is also in Greenwich, and if you have visitors, you don’t run out of ideas. For those with a more refined taste, there are a number of great restaurants and bars in the area, such as the Royal Opera House. Don’t forget, of course, the DLR – it’s a packed – on-sight – full of shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and shops in East London. Sitting in front of it is considered the 101 best things to do in London that can take you into the city in less than 30 minutes, so you don’t need a car, just a walk or a bike or even a bus.
While there are a number of major attractions in east London, there is plenty to do in other parts of the city. In this sense, it should be noted that the area has a wide selection of craft food and craft beers, some of which are among the best in the capital.
If you prefer to work up a sweat, you can also stroll or cycle along the River Thames, passing some of the city’s most popular tourist attractions such as the Museum of London and the Royal Botanic Garden.
Alternatively, you can be part of one of the city’s most popular cycling and walking trails, such as the London Cycle Trail or the East London Cycling Trail.
When it comes to shopping in London, most people’s attention is focused on the high-end shops and restaurants in London’s West End. But if you dismiss the retail offerings in east London, the same people will miss some of the city’s most popular shopping districts, such as the East End and the South End. The East – End London has a wide range of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars, as well as a number of restaurants and cafés.
Once one of Europe’s worst slums, London’s East End is now home to a range of high-end shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. Spitalfields was renovated in 2005 and is the most popular shopping street in the East End of London, and I would say the most important shopping street in the city.
Not surprisingly, guided walking tours of east London are always a popular option for our guests. Read on to see some of the hidden gems of East London and the East End of London.
The London Bridge area offers some of the best options in Canary Wharf by far, although we have some great restaurants and a number of great shops and bars in the area, but the emphasis is on food and drink (which is not a bad thing and certainly worth a visit). Brick Lane, which runs from the north end of Spitalfields to Aldgate South, is known for its excellent food and drink options, but also for its great views of the Thames and the city centre, as well as a great shopping area.
