We love Bethnal Green

Bethnal Green

Living in Bethnal Green

An artistic hub that's become equal parts bohemian and boutique.

No longer a place to avoid after dark, Bethnal Green has been reinvigorated by young creatives looking for a slice of east London and the ongoing revival of the wider area.

This wonderfully dishevelled part of the city has developed a cool arts scene and a modest gastronomic culture while still holding onto the grit and charm that makes it a unique place to call home. Every new artisan cafe or boutique shop that springs up here is testament to the direction that Bethnal Green is heading - yet another district in the east of the city that's well on its way from zero to hero.


Bethnal Green property

Despite its lowlier status until recently, Bethnal Green’s proximity to the City means that it’s never been short of desirable properties. Around 3,000 properties were damaged or destroyed during the Blitz, but there are still some very desirable streets with beautiful Georgian and Victorian terraces.

Good places to look include the Jesus Green and Globe Road conservation areas, as well as Cyprus Road and the aptly-named Paradise Row. Many of the houses here tend to be of the two- and three-bedroom variety. There are plenty of large mansion blocks and new developments, while City workers will also appreciate the many modern loft apartments.

We say:

Ideal for creative people who love to interact with the community. On the weekends, the residents of Bethnal Green come out in their droves to frequent the galleries, drink up in the pubs or hunt for bric-a-brac in the wide array of vintage shops and boutiques.

Your neighbours

The Neighbours
A bubbling hub of culture, Bethnal Green has its fair share of arty types, musicians and trend-setters, but you’ll also find a lot of young professionals opting for the dusty-charm of the east over the polished-sheen of the west. And don’t forget about the original East Enders - they were here long before the rest.

The Lifestyle
During the week, Bethnal Green is lively enough so that you’re never far away from something to do, but not bogged down by throngs of tourists. At the weekend, you’ll struggle to find a better atmosphere in the city.

Do not expect

An abundance of glass and chrome - this is still very much a part of the real east London, albeit a part that’s becoming increasingly trendy.

Sights around Bethnal Green

Bethnal Green

As a part of the new east London revival, Bethnal Green is one to watch for the future. Already earmarked as a place for young artists, the warehouses and empty storefronts here (or what’s left of them) are fast filling up with art galleries, creative spaces and even the odd boutique hotel - the sky's the limit for this part of the city.

Bethnal Green

Unlike neighbour Shoreditch, where the quirkiness is beginning to feel a little forced, Bethnal Green still has that raw charm, grounding it as a real place to live rather than a social statement.

TIn a land where cool vintage shops are the norm, House of Vintage does well to stretch its neck that little bit higher than the rest.

With one-off items from the 1920s to the 1980s, you’re sure to find something to make you look even more fabulous than usual here.
