Area Guide to Bethnal Green

From the bustling daily market to the iconic E.Pellici caff (order the fry up), Bethnal Green is as authentically East End as a plate of pie and mash. While neighbouring areas may have become a bit, well, boujee, Bethnal Green retains a rough and ready cockney charm. Digital, banking and creative professionals rub shoulders with real Eastenders and properties span everything from Victorian terraces to listed tower blocks and converted period buildings including bathhouses and biscuit factories. Excellent Overground and Underground links mean you can be in Oxford Circus in under 15 minutes.

 

Three miles east of central London, Bethnal Green suffered much bomb damage during WW2 and the area remains steeped in history. The Stairway to Heaven memorial commemorates the 1945 tube shelter disaster and listed buildings are everywhere, from St John’s Church (now a parish and concert venue) and York Hall, home to a gym, Turkish bath and London’s leading boxing venue. 

 

Take a stroll to Paradise Row for lunch or drinks in the hip bars occupying the railway arches, let your hair down at Bethnal Green Working Men’s club or check out the thriving art scene. Sundays are best spent haggling at Columbia Road Market before tucking into a roast at the Marksman. For a fix of fresh air, take your pick from Victoria Park, Bethnal Green Gardens or Spitalfields City Farm.
