Explore Tower Hamlets
To the east of the city of London and to the north of the Thames, the borough of Tower Hamlets is the heart of the old East End, literally within the sound of the Bow Bells that define if you are a Cockney. It is one of the most transformed of London's boroughs, taking in the Docklands and Canary Wharf, as well as the quaint semi-residential riverside districts of Wapping and Limehouse. This is a multicultural area - a visit to this part of London without sampling the food from one of the famous Brick Lane curry houses would be a missed opportunity.
Experience Tower Hamlets like a local
Despite the good tube connections, many of the locals have discovered there's no better way to enjoy the capital than to take a walk into the centre along the river from the East End. From the southern ends of Tower Hamlets you can take a really scenic stroll along the South Bank. Otherwise you can take the DLR (which takes you through Canary Wharf with excellent views of the epic skyscrapers) or East London lines to get you quickly wherever you want to go. Wapping can be walked to from the Tower of London and, away from the industrial edge that is home to Britain's national newspapers, there are some great pubs in the historic, former warehouses. Limehouse's pubs also have a lot of character, many of them having rooms that directly open up to the river. Close to the Tower, you'll find St Katherine's Dock, one of east London's most famous converted docks, fabulous for shopping and relaxing in the sunshine. Don't forget to root through the markets in Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Colombia Road.
Renting holiday accommodation in Tower Hamlets
You can depend on Wapping, Canary Wharf, Limehouse and, indeed, the properties all along the river to be of a very good standard, often on surprisingly quiet roads. For the most luxurious accommodation in Tower Hamlets, the converted warehouses and newer skyscrapers, with riverside views, are perfection: great access to central London and with deluxe interiors. The northern parts of the borough haven't benefited from as much attention as their neighbours and there are still some streets, away from the main thoroughfares in Whitechapel and Bethnal Green, that visitors would be best avoiding. Nonetheless, there is a great range of top quality, family-friendly, self-catering accommodation in Tower Hamlets to be found all across the borough.
