With a host of period properties, new build apartments, acres of green space and millions of pounds of inward investment, the brilliantly-located district of Bow is one of the East End’s most attractive residential options.
In the northern area of E3, lovely Victorian family homes traverse from the expensive Tredeger conservation area and along the Roman Road – home of artists’ studios, a dance space, an art gallery, and a buzzing Saturday market that sells everything from pie and mash to end-of-line fashion goodies. Just beyond is the magnificent Victoria Park – a huge and beautifully planted open space that hosts a variety of festivals, concerts, fetes and rallies. Nearby, wine bars and restaurants, including the brilliant Jongleurs comedy club, line the canal-side Bow Wharf development.
Dominated by the huge Bryant & May match factory, the Bow Quarter development stands as a reminder of the changing face of the East End. Once the home to exploited factory girls (whose strike was pivotal to the 19th-century labour movement), the area now hosts a luxury apartment complex, complete with swimming pools.
Bow is located west of Royal Docks and Stratford, east of Bethnal Green, north of Limehouse and Canary Wharf, and south of Hackney. It is part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
Bow boasts excellent train connections, with tube stations located at Mile End (Central, District, Hammersmith & City, Bromley by Bow) and Bow Road (District Hammersmith & City); DLR stops are located at Bow Church and Devon’s Road. Bow has good access to the north and south by car as Bow Road leads the A11 out towards the M25 and escapes the worst of the City's congestion. The Hertford Union Canal runs west from Old Ford Lock along the bottom of Victoria Park, linking the River Lee Navigation and the Regent’s Canal.
The main streets and buildings include Bow Road, Roman Road, Tredegar Road, Fairfield Road, St Stephen’s Road, Devon’s Road, Grove Road, Old Ford Road, Parnell Road, Holy Trinity Church, Bow Church, St Clements Hospital, Poplar Municipal Hall, the former Bryant and May match factory. Nearby areas include Hackney, Homerton, Bethnal Green, Haggerston, Shoreditch, Docklands, Limehouse, Millwall, Poplar, Stratford, West Ham, Canning Town, Royal Docks, Canary Wharf, the Isle of Dogs.
