Where do E16 locals go?

Emirates Air Line

Breathtaking views over east London.

Run or Dye

The most fun you can have with a pair of trainers, never mind the mad dashing through colour stations where you're attacked with sachets of dye. There's also a music festival of colour! Run or Dye takes place not only in London, but all around the country and world.

ExCel Centre

There are exhibitions held here all the time - most recently ComicCon. It was also the venue for many of the events during the 2012 Olympics.

Sunborn Yacht Hotel

A little known gem, the Sunborn is a fully functioning hotel held on a yacht next to the ExCel centre. You can go here just for the bar, as well as the half price buffet breakfast at the weekend too!

Up at the O2

A really good day out scaling the roof of the O2. Once at the top you can see across East London and you are directly in the flight path for City Airport, with the chance to take some good pictures of the landscape!

Dynamix Health Club

The perfect place to go to relieve stress after work. It has an amazing free weights room and a cafe serving healthy juices and shakes made from a choice of protein brands.

Il Bianco

The best food at this little hidden gem in London! Great for occasions and loads of specials - the seafood is the best thing they do.

The Gun

A lovely riverside tavern hidden on the east side of the Isle with excellent food. The best place for a Sunday roast in East London and a good selection of real ales too.

Billingsgate Market

If you're cooking up a seafood dinner, this is the place to go to pick up high-quality and reasonably priced fish - way better than the supermarket.

Susan Clark Interiors

A lovely independent interiors shop, selling fab pieces of furniture, fabrics, small gifts and unique cards.

Chrisp Street Market

Poplar's vibrant pedestrianised market and one of a few places in London where you can buy a baguette and then a mop in under a minute!

Vijay's Chawalla

A down to earth vegetarian Indian restaurant, with tasty, inexpensive, healthy and authentic food.

Crossrail Place

Not just a terminal for Crossrail, but a mecca for restaurants and shopping. There is also a lovely relaxing winter garden.

Canada Square Park

Whether it's a music event, car exhibition or watching a top sporting match on one of the big screens, sit back and grab a drink in the heart of Canary Wharf.

The Cutty Sark

A really cosy pub, animal friendly, dining with a view and the best Sunday lunches in Greenwich!

Clive

"You can gaze over the shimmering water of the great, historic dock in the morning in a five minute walk to the DLR station. There are new restaurants, bars and shops appearing every week and it is fast becoming a bustling young community. Cross Rail is coming and the buzz is growing - it's fantastic."

"The underground and DLR station is near by. Also the entire Dockland area starts from here; Holiday Inn, Excel Centre, Cable car, City Airport all are near by. Co-operative to McDonalds all are here"

Matthew

"I love how tranquil it is along the Thames, whilst having a great amount of contemporary art and history nearby."

Nick

"Canning Town has great transport links, it is on the Jubilee line and takes 2 minutes to get to the O2 Dome; 5 minutes to get to Canary Wharf and 20 minutes to Green Park in the West End. It also has DLR stations which makes it easy to get to City Airport, Bank and Tower Hill. There is a new DLR route that will connect Canning Town with Stratford City Westfield shopping centre, right next to the Olympic Park; and Stratford Int... more

"The largest sound ever heard in London was purportedly from an explosion from Brunner Mond Chemical Works in Silvertown near West Ham, where 50 tonnes of TNT exploded - a blast so large that it blew the windows of the Savoy hotel and almost overturned a taxi in Pall Mall."
