When it comes to opposing moods, you will rarely find a borough that is more diverse than Tower Hamlets.

Tower Hamlets Borough Guide

Home to the famous curry houses of Brick Lane, street art murals and the East London Mosque in Whitechapel, the fashionable shops and market in Spitalfields, London’s financial heartland of Canary Wharf and of course the ever-developing Docklands area.

Once upon a time this was one of London’s worst slums but this no longer the case. This small but popular borough is very much in the heart of East London and is forever attracting an eclectic mix of individuals to call it home.

Things to do in Tower Hamlets

The Blind Beggar- One of London’s most famous pubs, no longer full of gangster, but full of that special atmosphere which keeps the regulars coming back.

The Palm Tree- Typical East End boozer. This friendly spot has a resident jazz band to get your weekends off to the best start.

Brick Lane- London’s ‘Curry Mile’ offers so much more than a plethora of South Asian cuisine. Explore the area’s famous market and find hidden quirky gems amongst the organised chaos.

Mudchute Park and Farm- Your traditional English countryside getaway in the heart of East London, with all your usual farm yard critters like cows, pigs, llamas, alpacas and exotic birds.
