Lovely place to live in with shops being a walking distance and Westfield Stratford 2 stops away on train.

I would say this area is very safe to live in. I love the fact that everything is walking distance from here. We have a few parks, shops, eateries and local supermarkets.

Transport

We have three train stations that are local to us, many bus routes too. I would say 32 years of living here and I’ve never had a problem going from one destination to another using public transport. We also have a couple of local taxi firms if more comfortable travelling in cars. I would say public transport is highly reliable. Ofcourse there have been delays some days but employees are very helpful.

Community

My street has both home owners and renters. We have a mixture of families and couples living here. Very quite where I live and away from traffic. We are able to rent out parking spaces but sadly the cost of visitors parking is very expensive and very hard to get hold of parking round here.

Amenities

Bethnal Green has a variety of popular supermarkets such as Tesco, Iceland and Sainsbury. The area also has a good variety of independent grocery stores and corner shops as well as a market selling variety of things from fruit and veg, to home goods to clothing. It also has a range of ethnic shops selling Asian attires, cafes selling delicious breakfast and lunches, fried chicken shops and a couple of pubs that have been there for a very long period of time. Short walking distance is popular spitalfield market and shoreditch, which again has a variety of cafes and eateries. Overall, this area is a delight and safe place to live in with everything available at walking distance. I would say the area has everything that is needed (minus a shopping centre lol). It has a train station and many buses going through the area. Love it.

East is growing vibrantly

The area I live in is very close to trendy and up-and-coming areas. There are dog parks located in the area for pet owners. This area is very safe for pets and children, as there are small parks (which do require an upgrade or some level of maintenance. There’s a very large pool of schools to choose from for your children. I love the convenience and value of my area and home. It is growing and becoming more and more lively. What I dislike is the youth that may be involved in gangs and crimes associated with gangs. The community is doing its best to tackle such problems with the use of community centres, placed to help improve the community.

Transport

There are conveniently placed bus stops which are easy to get to and all within walking distance. Buses arrive in a timely manner, usually with a display located on the bus stop to tell you how long each bus will take to arrive to that bus stop. London transport is all connected so no area is inaccessible. Train stations are rather close to each other, so reaching a location that may take too long to walk or bus to can be reached via the London Underground trains (less than 5 minutes to travel from station to station via trains), train times can also be seen (as well as the service status) from screens shown within the stations. Some stations (including London overground stations) even support disabled access. If you’re not a fan of public transport, there’s an array of taxi services working in these areas. There has been an increase of cycle lanes and even cycle only zones for those that travel on bicycles. One thing to be wary of is the rush hour. Particularly in areas closer to Central London, it is typically advised to leave slightly earlier to avoid the rush. London is always alive, no matter what the time is. Night transport is always available to use, night buses run up until 4 or 5am while certain train lines tend to close just after midnight. Buses and trains are usually clean enough to use, but after a busy day, empty cans, bottles, newspapers can be found scattered in them. The seats are also rather dusty too. In terms of convenience, public transport in these areas are perfect and affordable with a fair of £1.50 for buses (including the use of the hopper fair, which allows you to get on any other bus for free within then hour), and trains having their price vary between zones (£2.40 from zone 1 to 1, prices go up from there).

Community

The street at which I live on typically houses various types of people. People renting the property, home owners, couples, but mainly families. Students don’t typically live in these areas as the properties are too expensive to rent for a student. Families mainly live in my area as there’s a range of schools for children that are easy to get to. The area I live in offers parking spaces which can be bought with parking permits from the local council. If a person isn’t able to buy one of these parking permits, they can find a free parking space nearby. There’s traffic in these areas but they tend to go unnoticed as it’s only the occasional car/bike that travels down the road. Bin collections take place on a weekly basis with community bins located just outside of our homes, this includes recycling bins and regular waste bins.

Amenities

There are various restaurants, bars, clubs supermarkets, etc. scattered around E2. I am situated in or near Shoreditch. In or near this location, there are various and convenient train stations that would take you to the heart of London and to the edge of London. Shoreditch on its own is very vibrant and an up-and-coming area. There’s the Brewdog bar located on Bethnal Green road, situated near boxpark which is beside the Shoreditch Highstreet Station. Costa coffee can be found on this road as well as a small but lively cinema called Rich Mix. The road stretching from Shoreditch town hall down to Old Street (including the branching streets) have various bars and clubs, Ballie Ballerson is one club which features an indoor pool filled with plastic balls. There are conveniently placed gyms/leisure centres and community centres placed near residential areas which helps keep up with events taking place near home as well as encouraging a healthy lifestyle. E2 offers a exciting restaurants, particularly Asian fusion, Indian, Turkish, African, Caribbean, Thai and more. Not forgetting brands such as KFC, Subway, McDonalds and a new German Donner kebab that will be opening up in Bethnal Green.

I live in Bethnal Green and it’s perfectly connected to everything around

It’s a very family friendly area on some parts, but at night sometimes I don’t feel safe about walking through it alone. It’s perfect for kids or pets, because there are a lot of parks where they can run and play,

Transport

I live in Bethnal Green and it’s perfectly connected to everything around. There’s the Central Line and, if you walk a bit there are also Stepney Green station and Whitechapel stations, where you can take district/hammersmith/circle line or the overground. There are also a lot of buses and it’s great to move around London.

Community

I live in a very quiet residential street, which I love because you can’t be woken up by trafic at night. It’s very peaceful, except maybe for the screaming foxes, but that’s a normal thing in London.

Amenities

There are a lot of parks, which I think it’s a great thing because in London they’re like a way to escape the city life. Regarding groceries, there are a lot of options, same thing for restaurants, and maybe I would add some pubs, but other than that everything is fine. One thing that I think it’s missing are chain stores where you can buy clothes, because in the area everything is very cultural and there aren’t any options.
