It celebrates individuality, welcomes the new (and trendy) and appreciates culture.

I am proud to say my area is becoming trending and upmarket. It celebrates individuality, welcomes the new (and trendy) and appreciates culture. There is a good community in the area, local parks and great schools so perfect to bring up Children.

Transport

Fantastic transport links. Bethnal green station is on the central line that dissects all of London, taking you to most places quickly. Only issue is that it very busy during rush hour to try and get into central London. There are plenty of bus routes that take you to all parts of London, and direct buses to most popular places. Night buses are sufficient and never had an issue of lack of.

Community

There are plenty of parking spaces. The local residents are made up of family owners so there is a nice community. It is away from the main road so there is little to no traffic noise. Bin collections provide easy recycling options, and local area is kept clean by local council.

Amenities

I live next to bethnal green, shoreditch and hackney! There’s is a lot of restaurants, bars and Independent cafes. All these local places are full of character, with unique aesthetic and quality menu. Hackney coffee company is my go to cafe (ideal workspace), providing spacious, bright and beautiful environment to be productive. I’m never short social activities thanks to being so close to shoreditch & Hoxton. From crazy golf, ping pong, adult ball pit to rooftop cinemas and bars. This area is by far the most up and coming area in London, appreciated not only by me, but visitors too. Brick lane and box park also adds more dine-in and take out options! Including many continental food and dietary trends (vegan etch). There’s a lot of local culture, best appreciated in the summer. This includes the Columbia flower market and the food market in Victoria park. As a local resident, I am never short of grocery shops, independent or not. There are local gyms at every stones throw, and local shops for most things you need in bethnal green road. Only thing missing are retailers for clothes, but I am happy with markets vintage/boutique shops. High street shops are close by public transport anyway (Westfield Stratford, canary wharf, west end).

Most eclectic area in London

I like the vibe a lot, it’s a safe area and with a lot of safe open spaces for children making it an ideal place for families

Transport

The transportation is excellent it has plenty of bus routes going from Liverpool Street to places like Enfield, Stratford, Ilford. The night buses go from the west end to Romford and Walthamstow all going through e1

Community

The LiveableStreets street initiative has cut down on traffic noise and due to some very good primary Colombia primary and Virginia primary schools it mostly families in the area

Amenities

This area is includes shoreditch high street and Colombia rd,it has really good restaurants and amazing night spots. There is pizza east ( pre lockdown) which was always buzzing, there is Boxpark which has amazing restaurants to suit every taste from vegan to raging carnivore and everything in between, favourite is blackbear burger which is 😋😋😋. There is the flower market every Sunday on Colombia rd which can’t be beat the shops are also little gems which can’t copied anywhere else the art galleries have amazing pieces. Then there is bricklane which has the best beigals in London, that’s just a fact and of the street there is a park full of amazing graffiti( accessible art for the masses) also a plethora of restaurants and on Sunday it’s transformed into a shopping area with amazing stalls with everything from art to clothes from artisans all over the globe and the food is everything from vegan Ethiopian food to regional Malaysian food. I could go on but I couldn’t communicate the atmosphere in words it has to be experienced. After lockdown and vaccinations of course, stay safe

Nice area but council has ruined the area with anti car agenda

It has become very trendy and many of old shops have been replaced with hipster pop up shops and has become very similar to Shoreditch

Transport

The transport links are good with homerton overground and hackney down station both nearby and loads of bus routes to place like Dalston and west London.

Community

Street is made of good mixture of home owners and renters and is a very desirable location due to it being very trendy.

Amenities

Loads of shops now with alot of then very trendy shops but has become car free so impossible to drive or park in area anymore.
