Living here

Zone 2 living, Zone 1 journey times

With the Tube and Docklands Light Railway (DLR) close by, you’ll be in the City or Canary Wharf in as little as 12 minutes. Workout before work. Cycle to the City. Waterside is synonymous with both wellbeing and buoyant investment value.
As Knight Frank say: “there is a uniqueness to waterside living.”

Living in Bow, you’re only ever moments away from a waterside workout. Enjoy direct access to the Leaway, a riverside route that takes an hour to walk or half an hour if you run. Start at the Olympic Park in the north and finish at the River Thames in the south.

Check out Grade I listed tidal mill, and island oasis. Or iconic film studio, 3 Mills Studios, the birthplace of blockbusters from Wes Anderson and David Cronenberg, and has welcomed stars like Sir Paul McCartney and Beyoncé. Not bad company a waterside stroll away.

People in Tower Hamlets have access to more water spaces than any other London borough. That means kayaking or paddleboarding your way around the waterways that run through the enormous 26-miles long Lee Valley Regional Park.

Stratford is home to one of the largest shopping and entertainment destinations in Europe. Westfield Stratford City offers all the big brands you can think of, plus the UK’s biggest casino.
