“The local council, specifically Tower Hamlets Homes has a reputation to be improved”
“I think the area is fairly safe, unlike other area”
Good amenities, especially in terms of the variety of foods. There are nearby places to work out or have a drink. However, it feels somewhat unsafe at night and there is little overall sense of community.
The edgy, more youthful vibe of the young professionals and the conservatism of the South-East Asian community meet. This ensures great variety when it comes to the shops in the area. That said, the park tends to be dominated by younger people who often work out in it. The area is rather unsafe as some people inhale gas out in the open sometimes. There are sometimes verbal fights in front of the shops at night.
The tube is 10 to 15 minutes away by walking and only one station away from Liverpool Street, which provides great connections. There are no good connections to supermarkets but those are within walking distance for able-bodied people. Bikes are available to borrow nearby and next to the tube station.
Families and young professionals are most likely to live on the street. The street is within a few minutes away from Victoria Park and has food stores that are open until late at night. It is also closed to a school.
South Indian food shops are the most predominant and one can get a great range of ingredients that are specific to such cuisine. If one shop does not have it, then another one on Roman Road will. Some shops have fresh fruits and vegetables where each item can be hand-picked. There is one food shop that is especially suitable for vegans. At least two of the shops are open till late at night (11 pm). There are two takeaways nearby (fish and chips and Indian) and even more still within walking distance. There is also a barbershop but the quality of their service is questionable. There are two cafes and a dentist, as well as a pharmacy nearby. Victoria Park is very close and hosts a food market each Sunday with a great range of international foods. Alcohol, hot drinks and desserts are also available. There are no great connections to larger shops but they are within acceptable walking distance for able-bodied people (a Lidl and a Tesco about 20 minutes away). There is one bookshop. Two post offices are also located within walking distance (around 10 minutes). There is a lack of nearby high-quality GP surgeries.
The local council, specifically Tower Hamlets Homes has a reputation to be improved
Most liked - Victoria Park along with other open and green spaces. Least liked - reputation of the local council along with their customer service. Overall, a great and friendly atmosphere. A very wide ranging demographic, but one that generally lives in tranquility alongside each other. The area is well-suited for pets and children, as much as any average area inside the M25 if not more.
E2, E3 and E14 are all well served by public transport. Transport for London has 5 rail lines, some of which offering night-tube services, running on its network here: - Central Line - Hammersmith & City - Jubilee - Overground - DLR Alongside the tube there are many buses, with night-services also operating. All TfL services in these parts of London are reliable, regular and clean. In addition there is a well-functioning highway system for road users. This includes the Cycle Superhighway for the safety and convenience of cyclists.
In my area the bins are regularly collected. There is ample parking, traffic noise is generally limited to daytime and relatively little anti-social behaviour. My area and street has a wide-ranging demographic. Native and life-long inhabitants, recent immigrants - of first, second and third generations - as well as students and professionals. There are people of all ages and circumstances - single people, couples and families.
I live in E2, I work in E14 and spend time in E3. All areas are great and have their own character. E2 is my favourite area in London, with a good range of shops, restaurants, bars and various open spaces. This includes the famous Victoria Park, which has the award-winning status status as the nation’s favourite park in numerous years. All areas have been gentrified in recent decades, though E2 perhaps shows the best of the old alongside the new. You’ll still find a typical Bethnal Green style pub such as the Salmon & Ball or The Hare, but you’ll also find more hipster takes on alcohol-serving venues such as with the Dundee Arms and the sultry Satan’s Whiskers. In E3 you’ll find many chain restaurants - Subway, Nando’s, KFC etc alongside some more independent fast-food outlets. This serves the student population of nearby Queen Mary University well. E14 has had undergone the most development and is home to Canary Wharf, one London’s two financial districts. You don’t have to work there to take a trip out though, and you’ll find many great restaurants such as the Big Easy offering meals with waterside views. There’s also a wealth of opportunities - shops, restaurants and bars - on offer in the Canary Wharf Shopping Centre.
I think the area is fairly safe, unlike other area
I think the area is fairly safe, unlike other areas with high rates of knife crime etc. I think the atmosphere in my local area could do with regeneration.
As someone who solely uses public transport, I find the public transport links in my area to be good and numerous. However, as one might expect, they could certainly be cleaner.
I think that bin collections are pretty good. I think that there are mostly couples and families living on my street.
There are a range of good quality local shops, restaurants and bars that are reasonably close to where I live. What is particularly convenient to me is the proximity of places of worship.
Living in this area you are not too far away from anything.
